Lulenco Earthworks, Mining and Dams


Lulenco Plant Hire (Pty) Ltd was first established in 1978 by Lennie Starke. Prior to that it operated under the name of Starke Earthmoving Company, which was established in 1948. Control of the company has since passed to his son, Charl, in 1989. At that stage the company was mainly involved in plant hire and civil contracts.

Charl has since changed the scope of the business and is now specializing in bulk earthwork and open cast mining activities. The company has developed into a major player in the Western Cape area. Although some plant is available for hire, Lulenco specializes in contract work and turn-key projects.

The offices are still located on the family farm "Contermanskloof" near Durbanville. The business is still very much a family concern as Charl is assisted by his wife, Louisa, and two sons namely Yeager and Andries.
