Who we are
Mining Equipment Manufacturers of South Africa (MEMSA), an industry cluster established in 2016 with the support of the Department of Trade, Industry and Competition (dtic), works hard to build a competitive advantage for South African mining equipment manufacturers by provides access to key markets and championing existing and future local technology and innovation. 

As the principal local South African mining equipment manufacturing cluster we are recognised by the Department of Minerals Resources and Energy (DMRE), the Department of Science and Innovation (DSI) and the Minerals Council of South Africa    (MCSA). 

MEMSA is located in the heart of the CSIR managed Mandela Mining Precinct, and the three bodies subsequently benefit from a close working relationship.











A third of MEMSA members are small enterprises and more than half are at least 51% black owned and with few exceptions we have seen our small business members grow and expand through participation in the cluster.
