A zero-harm approach to efficient industry
Celebrating 50 years as one of South Africa’s most reliable industry players, Efficient Engineering’s almost 30,000 square metres of facilities across Gauteng and the Western Cape are testament to both the Company’s reputation and its philosophy.
Its ever-expanding and diversifying array of services cater for oil & gas applications, earth moving equipment, materials handling, site fabricated storage tanks, tank manufacturing, equipment design and customisation, and refurbishment and maintenance services; culminating in a one-stop service shop able to bring satisfaction to clients both nationally and internationally.
“We understand that projects are constantly evolving and that clients require a progressive, comprehensive product, systems and service solution,” the Company explains on its website. “As a result, we strive to constantly innovate and diversify our service and product offering. “This offering includes the provision of the latest software solutions, design engineering, industrial IT, project management and multi-disciplined engineering and field solutions, tailored for your company needs.”
All engineering is performed in-house by qualified personnel, facilitating a personable approach which entails ongoing, direct engagement with clients throughout every project.
As such, “we have an extensive working history with all major OEMs and a number of design houses, providing a vast understanding of local conditions, vital to successful project delivery”, the Company adds.
Fit for the world stage
Remaining operational and successful for 50 years is no mean feat, and would certainly have been Giuseppe Cimato’s ambition upon incepting the Company back in 1968.
Back then he envisioned the formation of a dynamic engineering solutions company based in Africa’s economic capital, and as its remit has broadened, this goal has edged closer to, and then beyond, realisation.
The aforementioned selection of markets also include open cast mining, modular solutions, mineral processing and petrochemicals, and each are compounded by an increasingly substantial assortment of equipment at Efficient Engineering’s disposal.
“Key equipment include truck bodies, drag line buckets, bucket wheel reclaimers, thickeners, mills, pressure vessels, heat exchangers, gas storage bullets, storage silos, electro houses and drum reclaimers,” the business lists.
And such scope has inevitably translated into numerous high profile projects, as epitomised by one of its flagship projects, MeerKAT, back in 2016.
The Company describes: “The South African MeerKAT radio telescope, built some 90 kilometres outside the small Northern Cape town of Carnarvon, was a precursor to the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) telescope and was integrated into the mid-frequency component of SKA Phase 1. The SKA Project is an international enterprise to build the largest and most sensitive radio telescope in the world, and is located in Africa and Australia.
“Efficient Engineering was proud to have been chosen as one of the local manufacturers tasked with delivering a world-class product showcasing an African product fit for the world stage.”
