Establishing a manufacturing business that is immersed within the mining, construction and railway industries requires steady growth, adaptability and invention. Aveng Manufacturing had its beginnings in familiar surroundings, but through embracing these qualities it unlocked new territories and now stands as a leader in its field.
When companies such as Grinaker and LTA began periods of rapid expansion in the 1970s, the need for reliable suppliers warranted the formation of new manufacturing companies. Over the years, numerous companies were established to supply these industries with high quality products, services and solutions.
The demand for specialised products grew steadily. Railway construction entailed the need for landscaping. Mineral processing required valves for water and effluent. New building designs demanded the design and installation of curtain walling over claddings systems and specialist shop front glazing.
As a series of mergers and acquisitions unfolded during the 1990s and early 2000s, the Aveng Group began to benefit from a consolidated manufacturing division. In 2007 Aveng Manufacturing was reorganised to offer a comprehensive product range, management for the construction and maintenance of railway lines, curtain walling, process control instrumentation, process system solutions as well as engineering, construction, mining and water projects.
Aveng Manufacturing consists of six Business Units:
Aveng Automation and Control Solutions (ACS), a leader in South Africa in the field of process control instrumentation, process systems solutions, machinery health monitoring equipment and services, engineered fire and gas detection systems and solutions;
Aveng Infraset, which manufactures concrete products for the infrastructural market from rail to landscaping;
Aveng Duraset, which manufactures steel and concrete products for the mining industry and geotechnical products to the construction industry;
Aveng Dynamic Fluid Control (DFC), a manufacturer of valves for the water, effluent and the mineral processing industry;
Aveng Rail, which builds sophisticated range of rail machines, constructs and maintain railway lines for its rail customers; and
Aveng Facades, a specialist division that offers the design, manufacture, supply and installation of curtain walling over cladding systems and specialist shop front glazing solutions.

Safety is paramount, never to be compromised in the persuit of any objective.
