Joint Venture – Surcotec

Surcotec is a fully BEE compliant metal coatings and mechanical component refurbisher.  The company has been operating under the present management for the past 15 years and is the longest established thermal spray coating company in the Western Cape.

A joint venture (signed in April 2015)  gives Thermaspray a 50% shareholding in Surcotec, and perfectly positions both companies to deliver an unrivalled, world-class range of coating and engineering technologies and service solutions that reduce costs and increase production by extending equipment life cycles.                    

Mutual Benefits

  • Surcotec’s established infrastructure broadens Thermaspray’s access to the Western and Eastern Cape regions.
