As a 100% Botswana owned Company we strive to support our local communities with various social responsibility programs throughout the year as we believe in giving back and supporting the economy of Botswana. We currently have more than 300 employees and we are dedicated to creating more employment in the future.
The history of engagement in Botswana dates to 1947 when the late Mr. Jan de Wet, the paternal grandfather, commenced in humble beginnings, with drilling operations in what was then known as Bechuanaland Protectorate. DWD Technologies Group is today a diverse family run operation owned by the third generation and based in the Republic of Botswana. The Company is the most experienced and longest standing drilling establishment in this part of the world. The Company gained its drilling experience over decades under the most adverse conditions and in remotest parts of Botswana. Our equipment is world class, of the latest available and modified to suit local requirements and demands. Diversification took place over years into Heavy Engineering, Heavy Steel Manufacturing, Hydraulic Hoses and Fittings and Agriculture.
