Metal’lum Engineering has its origins in the coal industry from the mid 60’s as SAIT Engineering which used manufacture and refurbish underground equipment. The company then moved into the crushing and screening market from the early 90’s with concentrated efforts into Africa. In 1999, we began to export into the Middle East where over the next several years we were the market leader in Horizontal Shaft Impactors with over 400 units supplied without a single failure. According to the Dubai Chamber of Commerce, around 60% of all crushed aggregates used in the construction of Dubai went through one of our Hiberia Horizontal Shaft Impact Crushers.
With the world market ever changing, we began to refocus on the Sub-Sahara market and develop our own range of South African made modular equipment made in our works in Johannesburg.
