The company’s manufacturing operation was established in 1953 by Graeme V. Donald in Port Elizabeth after emigrating from New Zealand were the parent company had been manufacturing wire stretchers and wool compaction equipment for over fifty years. During 1958 the distribution division was established with our first principal being Dunlop Industrial Products which still forms part and parcel of the many principals we represent.
Our factory based in Uitenhage employs in excess of twenty-five people with an average staff turnover of eleven years. It is fully equipped for in house production from raw material stage to final product to approximately 98%.
