Doing things the KAEFER way. Since 1918.

Carl Kaefer was a clever man. In 1918, Carl Kaefer used peat to insulate the walls of cold storage spaces. This idea led to the foundation of our company, which has since developed into a market leader for plant integrity services and solutions in the Mining, Energy, Industrial, Marine, Defence, Government and Construction Industries. With over 30,000 employees and operations in over 40 countries, we are a true global player - there for you all over the world.

We are driven by innovation and doing things differently. We develop new and tailored solutions to benefit our clients and are industry front-runners in digitalisation. We also ensure quality, safety, cost-efficiency and continuous improvement through our substantial in-house expertise and fully-integrated services.

Our successful track record speaks for itself and serves as a testament to the strength of our Founder Carl Kaefer’s vision - to reduce and use resources more efficiently.
