Formally established in 2016, Mining Equipment Manufacturers of South Africa or MEMSA is an industry cluster organisation aimed at advocating for and promoting the interests of its members and the mining equipment manufacture industry in South Africa, more broadly. MEMSA is housed in the Mining Precinct, at the heart of Gauteng, South Africa’s primary mining equipment manufacturing region.
It is MEMSA’s vision to position SA mining capital goods, components & product manufacturers as a cost competitive, innovative and transformative industrial cluster which is the preferred supplier to the local, regional and global markets.
MEMSA’S objectives include
The dti’s Resource Capital Goods Development Plan Study indicated that the formation of an industry cluster would be key to promoting the interests of mining equipment manufacturers, and facilitating the benefits of cooperation. Accordingly a group of manufacturers, ranging from large SA-based multinationals to smaller specialized and emerging companies, came together in 2015 to establish the Mining Equipment Manufacturers of South Africa (MEMSA) as in industry cluster organisation.
Milestones thus far include:
*The CSIR’s Mining Precinct generously provides MEMSA with office space and access to facilities at the Mining Precinct, where a range of mining-related organisations and companies are synergistically located.
