About Us


A brief look at our history.
The business was founded by the late Jannie Kleynhans (a well-known charismatic legend in the industry) who started the business with an old 1974 model Mercedes Benz Tipper truck back in 1983. He was the only employee who drove his truck, managed clients, marketed and repaired his own truck on the driveway of his home. He was a very strong willed, passionate and charismatic man that always had a big dream. Through grace and very hard work he and his wife, Wilma Kleynhans built up the business to a highly respected player in the transport industry. Jannie Kleynhans suddenly passed away in 2009, leaving the business to his 2 sons, Jean and Jacques who is still running the family business.

What is the meaning behind the name JKT?
Long before there were a thought of opening a business it so happened that the 2 Kleynhans sons were named, Jean and Jacques, both starting with the letter J like their father, Jannie. When the sons joined the business back in 2001 some changes were made and when the sons became directors the business name was changed from Kleynhans Transport to the JKT Group – J for Jannie, Jean and Jacques, K for Kleynhans and T for Transport

Back to the present
We currently run a fleet of MAN and Mercedes Tipper trucks that is supported by Sumitomo Excavators, Volvo Digger loaders as well as a Terex Pegson Mobile Crusher from our premises in the Gants Industrial Park in Strand next to the N2 Highway.

We also operate a state of the art crushing and processing facility in Somerset West where we supply brown decoration stone for mainly the landscaping market.

Finally we run a few recycling sites where we recycle building rubble into a G5 Subbase product for the civils and building industry. Our main facility is in the Broadlands Industrial Park next to the N2 just below Sir Lowrys Pass.

We aim to provide a personal hands-on service and strive to provide our clients with quality products, best services and on time delivery. We aim to build trusted long term relationships with our clients and add value to both to our staff as well as to the community.
