The Knysna fires of June 2017 made international news. Knysna lost hundreds of homes and countless more were damaged in the largest fire disaster in the recorded history of South Africa.
Fire victims that lost their homes are desperate to get back on their feet and rebuild their lives as soon as possible. Due to the immense demand for construction services, immediate local resources are simply not adequate.
Therefore, Rancor partnered with Knysna-based Meyer Bros to assist Knysna in its road to recovery.
Rancor will bring its valuable experience and skills in the general construction and specifically light steel industries. Meyer Bros will apply its expert building and carpentry skills, as well as their local connections.
Together, these two companies will assist residents in constructing their homes as soon as possible, in the most cost-effective way to prevent further losses, and at international standards.
We are looking forward to helping Knysna rise out of the ash and to offer fire victims a new home to look forward to.
