The Leading Competitor in Service Delivery.

About Us


Dr HJ van der Bijl, the founder of Iscor (today ArcelorMittal Steel South Africa) had a vision to build a steelworks and a modern industrial town. The company VESCO (Vanderbijlpark Estate Company) was established in 1944 as a Section 21 Company “an association not for gain”.


VESCO as a non-profit organisation developed the town of Vanderbijlpark as well as some of the surrounding townships. The steelworks in Vanderbijlpark, then known as the largest steelworks in the Southern Hemisphere, began operating in 1947. The town, which forms the Gauteng's border along the Vaal River, was proclaimed in 1949.  It attained municipal status in 1952.


Over the years several services were established to compliment the physical development of the community.
