East Rand Forging is a family owned business, which started in
the early 1980's situated in Apex Industrial Sites on the East
Rand. Due to constant expansion, the company built it's own factory
and increased capacity to meet with the growing customer demands.
East Rand Forging moved to the new factory in 1994 where an extension
was later added.
The factory is currently processing approximately 120 tons of
steel per month, specializing in closed die forging ranging between
20grm to 3 kg and upset forgings up to M56. Modern facilities
at Apex Industrial Sites enables the company to produce tooling

and CAD design.
The modern tool room enables East Rand Forging to train apprentices
in-house. The only work that is outsourced is galvanizing and
heat treatment. To compliment quality control there are extensive
in-house testing facilities enabling the factory to carry out
Hardness Testing, Magnaflux Crack Detection and Tensile Testing
