about Us

With a track record of more than 60 years as a support service company in the mining industry, we ensure that our performance is always more than expected.

We are an agile company that adapts to our customers’ changing and challenging needs. We foster a culture of discipline, detail and dynamic determination that attracts high performing employees and results in masterful delivery.

Over the years Record Engineering has grown substantially and evolved into a key player in the mining sector becoming a leading supplier to numerous Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and large mining operations. 

In Kathu and the Northern Cape we primarily function as an engineering service provider for mining machinery and direct project management on mining plants.

Our engineering service ranges from the assembly, rebuild
and component changeout of all mining machinery including yellow machines and telehandlers as well as equipment sales, maintenance and support-based plant design. Additional support is available through our rental range of fleet and equipment. With an array of high quality and mine-ready machinery this is an economic solution to meet the ongoing fleet requirements of our clients during repair and refurbishment.
