The results of a feasibility survey conducted during 1997 and 1998 indicated that South African industries had a requirement for improved roller cover qualities.
H&M Roller Technologies (Pty) Ltd
is an independant South African company which was founded in 1999 through a joint venture between Hannecard
in Belgium and Mitex
in Germany to address these requirements. These two international companies are represented around the world and have many years of extensive roll covering experience.
The first H&M Rollers
facility was established in Vereeniging, Gauteng, South Africa.
A partnership with Hannecard
provided H&M Rollers
with the superior technology developed in the group's modern laboratories. This advantage presented H&M Rollers
with the ability to provide roll covers far superior to what was previously available in South Africa thereby meeting customer requirements.
Being the only member of the Global Roller Technologies Group
in Africa further ensures the continued technological superiority of H&M Rollers
Many large and smaller customers have since experienced the benefits of covered rolls from H&M Rollers
in all areas where these rolls have been installed. The durability and improved performance of our rolls have contributed towards reduced plant down time and reduced operating cost.
We strive to develop strong, long term working relationships with our customers and prefer to be regarded as "partners" rather than just suppliers.
In 2005 H&M Roller Technologies (Pty) Ltd
Rubber Rollers (Pty) Ltd, a company active in the roller business since 1970, to form the largest rubber and polyurethane roller covering company in Africa.
The company is structured into three
operating divisions which are strategically located to service a broad client base in Southern Africa. The roller production facilities are located in Vereeniging
close to Johannesburg, Cape Town
