Bigen is an African infrastructure development group of companies based in South Africa and Mauritius with regional offices across the African continent. Our certification as a Large Enterprise B-BBEE Level 1 Contributor, confirms our commitment to transformation, diversity, black ownership and investments in enterprise, leadership, and people development.
As a driver of socio-economic development impact through innovative, solutions-focused infrastructure, Bigen provides a broad spectrum of socio-economic, financial, technical, environmental, and institutional services across multiple sectors.
Development impact remains at the core of Bigen’s infrastructure solutions. It encapsulates our human-centric approach to meeting Africa-specific infrastructure needs with a legacy for all our clients.
Bigen actively influences the application of infrastructure to impact the long-term social well-being of society.
Our shared purpose of doing good while doing business is an undertaking that, whatever we do, will consistently benefit communities in which we work, our clients, stakeholders and employees and improve the livelihoods and well-being of the people of Africa. Our culture reflects what we value: caring and accountability in our hearts, minds and conduct wherever we influence and interact and work with others to achieve desired results.
A milestone in Bigen’s history is its rapid geographical growth from a microengineering consultancy, operating from one location, to a continental leader with offices in South Africa, Botswana, Kenya, Ghana, Mauritius, Mozambique, Zambia, Namibia, and Tanzania.
Today, the Group has a regional footprint in more than 19 countries and regards further expansion into Africa as the foundation for future growth. Target countries are selected based on economic opportunity, ease of doing business, value alignment and other country risk factors.
