We supplied and installed Cold and Freezer rooms with a storage capacity of 800 tons on a temperature of -250c.

We were on a maintenance contract with Fairdeal, Savills, and Pepcor over the Gauteng, Limpopo, Mpumalanga Province, and Botswana for 4 years.

  • We did rooftop package installations at Bolivia Lodge. We also installed rooftop package Air-Conditioners units at Giyani Spar.
  • We upgraded the Air-Conditioning system at Tsogo Sun / Garden Court.

This is just a small view of our company’s existence. We have been in the industry for 24 Years and are capable of performing a high standard of work.

We are also registered at MIBFA and all our workers do have a pension or provident fund registered with MIBFA, we are also registered with the CIDB with a ME 6 and EB6 Grading. CIDB Number 106 479.

Most of our workforce is fully qualified with Olifantsfontein Red seal certificates. We do in-house training with the semi-skilled workers up to the point where we send them for trade test at Olifantsfontein and have been very successful in our training up to date.

Since January 2014 we have expanded our company and started in maintenance, repairs, and sales in industrial kitchen and catering equipment and industrial standby generators.

We trust all our units are most important to you and we will do our outermost best to render a professional service of a high standard to ensure the best performance on all these units.

We have a service checklist. This is used to perform a service in each unit. This list will be kept on record. This way we can pick up any changes or poor performance on each unit. With every fault we pick up, we will automatically inform the responsible person with the Default, and a quote for repairs will be prepared.

We will have a technician on standby 24 hours a day, 7 days a week included public holidays.
