LEWCOR currently has a family business structure, consisting of LEWCOR Plant Hire CC, LEWCOR Civils CC and other smaller operations. Mr Chris Lewis holds sole membership, with his two sons employed full-time in management positions. LEWCOR may be regarded as a 100% Namibian corporation, stemming from the fact that all employees and managers are Namibian citizens.
