Humble Beginnings

It all began back in the 90’s. Partners in business, Fred Venter and Ronnie Pienaar got the opportunity in 1991 to take ownership of a well-established foundry in the industrial area of Boksburg, Gauteng. The Greenhorn Foundry had been in business since 1961 manufacturing smaller size castings.

Venter and Pienaar changed the name of the company to High Duty Castings and steadily expanded the foundries facilities to enable it to include larger size castings in order to support a range of industries including automotive, agricultural, pump and valve, gearbox manufacturers, compressor and hydraulics, bearing and railway
