What's in a name?
Cyntech gets its name from two words: cynosure and technology. Our aim is to be the focus point, the cynosure, of the consulting engineering industry. We focus our efforts on guiding our clients towards reaching their project objectives and addressing their needs from a holistic standpoint, guaranteeing that only the best engineering solutions are implemented.
The Centre of Engineering Solutions
Cyntech is a consulting engineering firm with headquarters based in Cape Town, South Africa, with a service offering that extends throughout sub-Saharan Africa. We provide extensive expertise in professional engineering, advisory, project management, system integration and IIoT services for the petrochemical, building and urban development industries. Our expertise ensures that projects are executed with competence stemming from our foundation of collaboration, problem-solving and innovation.
Engineering and the built environment are what drives us – particularly when it comes to ease of use of our system designs. Maximising the value on capital projects is our greatest intent, and our clients can rest assured that they will be provided with more effective and efficient engineering and business processes. We are on top of the most recent engineering trends, and the correct technology is always implemented in line with project requirements.
Meeting or exceeding our clients’ needs and expectations is our goal and we strive to complete the project in the best yet simplest way, without the need for micromanagement. We adapt our project management processes to suit each clients’ needs, ensuring that we align with their procedures, rules and regulations.
An Advocate of Transformation
Cyntech firmly believes in transformation and has followed a focused approach to empowering historically marginalised persons within the company.
The company has a black ownership profile of 51%, held via a Trust which has been established in terms of the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment Act (No. 53 of 2003) and the Amended Codes of Good Practice. The Cyntech BEE Trust provides ownership rights to black employees, serving as a vehicle that will enable them to obtain an economic interest in the firm, allowing for an organic distribution of profits.
Cyntech is proud to have obtained Level 1 B-BBEE accreditation. We are determined to continue making a positive impact through our continued commitment to our people and our unwavering support of all the businesses in our community.
Our journey towards transformation is far from over, and we are looking forward to taking our staff and clients along on this journey as we endeavour to leave a positive impact on all facets of our organisation and community.

All professionals working for Cyntech are also motivated to register as mentors, as we care deeply about skills transfer from generation to generation.
