SOMTA - OSG Group Company
“Since OSG Corporation became a major shareholder in Somta Tools in 2017 they have showed great faith in our manufacturing capabilities by continuing to approve capex funds for new equipment investment,” said Dilon Mathavalla, Engineering Manager at Somta Tools.
“Our factory in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal manufactures 7 000 standard items and a further 6 000 made-to-order items to serve the local market and the export markets in over 70 countries worldwide. The pressure to manufacture a large number of tools every month is enormous and we did not need a downstream process like marking, to create bottlenecks.”
“The two new machines are standalone units and no additional services, such as chillers and coolant tanks, are required to run them. This offers additional benefits in the form of floor space saving as the new machines only take up one-third of the space required for the older machines.”
