In 1971 REMA Tools was established as a tool and die making business under Max Erdmann. Over the years Max Erdmann designed and developed a specific rubber injection moulding machine that was suited to the manufacturing environment in South Africa at that time. As the company evolved and expanded, we started manufacturing rubber injection moulded products. With the branching out into various sectors of the economy, it was decided to change our name to REMA Industries (PTY) Ltd in 1997 and we implemented the ISO9001:2008 Quality Management System in 1999.
As a family-owned business with a forty-three year legacy, we pride ourselves on our high manufacturing standards and professionalism that is testament to family run businesses. The dream of REMA Industries started in Germany and became a reality in South Africa. Some 43 years later, the same values and standards have continued whilst with new ideas and expansions to take the initial dream further.
As a family owned business, our mission is to exceed our clients’ expectations through performance, our expertise and knowledge. We strive to implement a long term relationship with our clients based on quality, timely service and anticipation of their needs. We add value to our clients through innovation, foresight and integrity. We have a large client base in various industries such as mining, water reticulation systems, high pressure air coupling system and the poultry industry, to name a few.
We have been in the same premises in Krugersdorp, Johannesburg for over forty-three years. Many changes and expansions have been made over the years but stability has been one of our advantages. With our convenient location and extensive fleet of trucks, we are able to deliver our products efficiently.
Quality is of primary importance to our business and we implemented the ISO 9001: 2008 Quality Management System. ISO 9001 is a set of standards established by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) to maintain a quality system for various industries including the manufacturing industry. We have also been certified and assessed by SABS that we comply with the ISO 9001: 2008 Quality Management Systems to manufacture and supply seals, gaskets and various other rubber products for Industrial and Commercial applications.
The SANS 4633:2008 Mark Scheme related to sealing systems moulded in Natural, Nitrile and EPDM compounds has been implemented and integrated with the ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System. The South African National Accreditation System (SANAS) provides endorsement for the compliance assessment. This endorsement approves that products are technically competent and trustworthy. All products from REMA industries which fall under the scope of SANS 4633:2008 are clearly identified and the production process is documented.
We believe in sustainable growth in an ever-changing environment. We look forward to bright future in the manufacturing sector of South Africa.
