Concor found to have colluded on five projects

The Competition Tribunal has found that Concor colluded with other construction companies in tenders with respect to five projects.

The projects involved are: Upgrading of National Road 12 Beefmaster Intersection to Bloemhof; rehabilitation of the Ermelo to Amersfoort route; upgrading of National Road Tsitsikamma to Witelbos; Ngezi Phase I Civil Works Project; and a project at Tati Activox in Botswana.

The decision followed a complaint lodged by the Competition Commission with the Tribunal, in which the Commission sought a declaratory order from the Tribunal confirming that Concor contravened section 4(1)(b)(iii) of the Competition Act in relation to the abovementioned projects.

Murray and Roberts was given conditional immunity from an administrative penalty for the projects. This immunity extended to Concor -- bought by Murray and Roberts in 2006.

The Tribunal granted the declaratory order as per the Commission’s desired relief.
