About Us

Rankin was established in 1989 as an independently owned Consulting firm, built around a core of internationally qualified engineers with wide ranging skills and experience. This core group has been complemented by a cohort of locally and regionally trained engineers, providing a diverse multi-disciplinary staff base. Rankin’s pursuit of excellence in tackling complex engineering challenges has earned it a reputation as one of the leading Consulting firms in the region. Rankin is the first ISO 9001:2015 certified engineering consulting firm in Zambia. Experience, expertise, innovation, research, knowledge creation and collaboration allow Rankin to undertake specialized engineering projects from conception to completion. Whether developing conceptual designs, carrying out detailed designs or providing site supervision, continuous improvement is an integral element of our approach. We are aiming for Net Zero emissions by monitoring our carbon footprint and embarking on our own tree planting initiative in collaboration with government departments (read more). Rankin’s core business is headquartered in Lusaka, Zambia, with satellite offices in numerous site locations. Beyond Zambia, Rankin also undertakes specialized projects regionally, having successfully completed projects in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Zimbabwe, Botswana, Tanzania, as well as in Israel.
