EH Construction (Pty) Ltd trading as Excavator Hire (Formerly D & S Machinery and Plant Hire (Pty) Ltd) is a 100% citizen owned company which was established in 1987 as a plant hire firm servicing the construction industry in Botswana. Within a few years the company developed the capacity to undertake jobs such as bush clearing, fencing and road construction. This included activities such as grading, gravelling, layer works and surfacing as well as minor and major concrete works, storm water, sewage works and various types of town and city services.

Today, with an experienced senior management team and a workforce of over 500, the steady growth and development of EH Construction (Pty) Ltd has enabled the company to undertake major projects in the road, water and sewer reticulation, bridge construction, landfills, major building construction, bulk earthworks, shopping mall civil works and infrastructure fields.
