We are headquartered in Johannesburg, South Africa, with offices in Australia and throughout sub-Saharan Africa. We employ over 300 staff across our operations. All of our detailed engineering and procurement is undertaken in South Africa. Plant fabrication and full trial assembly are completed at our purpose-built facility in Klerksdorp, South Africa.
