Heritage and Values

R B Plant have been serving clients and partners, providing value-added engineering solutions and project delivery since the foundation of the business in 1969. The key to our mutual success has been our appetite to adapt to the continually evolving needs of clients, markets, technological advances and legislative developments yet remaining true to the core values Richard Bishop instilled in the company which have continued from 1969 to the present day. Our mixture of long-term and new clients reflects our culture of valuing clients’ needs no matter how small or big the project and embracing new clients no matter how challenging or complex the project may be.   SAFETY – We promote best safety practice 100% of the time regardless of task size or nature COMPLIANCE – Our work adheres to quality, environmental and professional standards. SATISFYING THE CUSTOMER – We measure success by value added to client not only the execution of the project itself RELIABILITY – We always deliver what we promise and agree realistic milestones INCLUSION – We act supportively towards clients, employees and sub-contractors INNOVATION – We identify and implement progressive as well as conventional approaches PASSION FOR WINNING – No two client needs are the same and neither do we adopt a “one size fits all” approach
