Why Join MEMSA?

Be part of a deliberate collective effort to grow the market share of SA-made mine equipment in South Africa, SADC and beyond, and to realise the potential that holds for wealth, job and enterprise creation. MEMSA has the support of government and private sector partners, and has come into existence at a time of great challenges and opportunities for our industry. We believe cooperation has as much of a role to play as healthy competition.

How to join:

Send an email to admin@memsa.org.za or fill in the contact form. Our office will respond with the relevant documentation, and answer any queries.
