EBH South Africa provides the international shipping industry as well as the oil and gas sector with a full in-house service in all aspects of ship repair through its operations in Durban, Cape Town, and East London. The company offers a dedicated team of employees focused on superior quality service, delivered by skilled craftsmen, and an extensive network of experienced subcontractors through a full range of utilities. This ensures efficient ship repairs, conversions, or new construction projects.
Elgin Brown and Hamer (EBH South Africa) was originally founded in 1878. DCD Group acquired EBH in December 2012 to form EBH South Africa. The acquisition provided EBH South Africa with access to additional resources and skills, ensuring it can continue to provide its clients with the professional service and quality workmanship they have come to expect.
EBH South Africa operates the only privately owned floating dock - ELDOCK - in the port of Durban. This increases the company's ability to offer clients flexible docking solutions.
EBH South Africa works closely with the National Ports Authority and plays a significant role in the maritime sector of the economy. Access to Transnet National Ports Authority's (TNPA) docking facilities has increased the company's capacity and flexibility in ensuring superior quality service to its clients. DCD Group has extended the reach of its Marine Cluster to Namibia with the acquisition and subsequent shareholding of 47,5% shares in EBH Namibia. EBH Namibia is one of the leading ship repairing countries along the West Coast of Africa, with three privately owned floating docks, access to the 2 000 ton synchro-lift common user facility of Namport and an active oil rig repair market.
