:: New MD for Bateman Minerals & Metals

Eddie du Rand has been appointed Managing Director of Bateman Engineering’s Minerals and Metals division, with effect from 1 September 2007. Eddie will also be a member of the Executive Committee of Bateman Engineering.

Eddie brings with him a wealth of experience at Managing Director and Board level in the construction industry. Highlights of his career include roles as Managing Director of Grinaker - LTA Construction, a company with a turnover in excess of US$1 billion and more than 15,000 employees. The Grinaker LTA Group was formed as a result of the acquisition by Aveng of LTA and the subsequent merger of Grinaker and LTA in 2000.

Prior to this, he was responsible as Managing Director for Grinaker - LTA M&E, the largest South African-based mechanical and electrical fabrication and construction contractor. This company resulted from the initial merger of Sydcor (Grinaker) and LTA Autecon MEIP (LTA) into Grinaker LTA MEIP, followed by the integration of DSE Structural Engineering, Churchyard and Umpleby, and Steeledale Cladding with Grinaker LTA MEIP, which then became Grinaker LTA M&E. This merger and the integration were successfully managed by Eddie.

Eddie qualified in Mechanical Engineering and completed an advanced management programme with Harvard Business School, USA.
