Industrial Building & Roofing Contractors CC (IBR Contractors) was established in 1999. The members, Dutch and Ryan van Leeuwen have between them over 50 years’ experience in the construction industry.

Dutch left Zimbabwe to work in South Africa in 1980 and over the next 19 years worked for two large construction companies carrying out Civil Construction works and managing/supervising the construction of over 100 warehouses and factories in the Durban and North Coast areas.

Ryan matriculated at Thomas More College(2002) before attending the University of Durban where he obtained his BSC degree in Property Developments in 2005. After working for a PQS firm Ryan joined a large construction company as a Project QS, here he spent three invaluable years before joining IBR Contractors.

Over the past twenty years Dutch and Ryan have developed an impressive record of contracts and repeat customers.

The success of IBR Contractors in the Construction Industry has been due to them being backed by a solid team of staff who have added their full support, work and loyalty towards helping build up its reputation.
