This role has been attained through the provision of client specific solutions based on some of the newest and most innovative technology available within the field of engineering, as well as through the provision of reliable and committed after sales service. This has made it possible for us to work closely with various international organisations who are world leaders within their fields, as well as with key partners within local South African industry.

We think of ourselves as partners with our clients on each and every project and the key to our long lived success has been a dedicated commitment to excellent Service, and the effective Transfer of Technology.

We provide assistance to our partners in the form of ensuring that the equipment and systems supplied by us are correctly installed, operated and maintained for their full working life.
