About IPP.

IPP founder Igor Pinto first started as a sole proprietor and later registered the name IPP which stands for Igor Pinto Projects. The company heritage began in the construction industry in 1996. IPP's services soon evolved and started to offer additional services such as plant hire, which naturally progressed into bulk earthworks and opencast mining.With this knowledge, the company was able to enter the mining sector as mine owners, which has been its major focus
