Circuit Water Engineering Equipment an established family owned business, has an excellent management team that has exceeded in growing the ever expanding demands of the industry.
The company was founded in 1974 by Jack Beswick as a manufacturing facility providing specialist Stainless Steel products. The manufacturing facility was started as the need for high quality Stainless Steel products could not be met by the market. It was a time of sanctions and for the first 10 years of its existence Circuit was manufacturing products using the best Boiler Makers and Sheet Metal Workers Gauteng had to offer. Most items were made according to supplied drawings, samples or mostly just ideas provided by customers. Circuit Engineering (as it was originally known) quickly established itself as the fore-runner in providing high quality Stainless Steel products. Often called upon by high end clients ranging from once off architectural designed items, to industrial giants such as Impala Platinum, De Beers Mining, Nestle, JHB Water, Rand Water, Umgeni Water and SASSDA to name but a few.
As the company grew and diversified its product offering, sanctions also came to an end and South Africa could once again trade with the rest of the world. Circuit Engineering, quickly realised that the South African market was extremely small on the global scale, and the negatives thereof was that true scale could not be achieved to ensure manufacturing costs were low. The importance of any industry is to ensure that it is at the forefront of research and development to provide customers with the best equipment for their needs. Circuit’s factory at this point had grown to around 25,000m² under roof, with three separate buildings housing a machine shop, mild steel workshop and then a Stainless Steel workshop with 85 of the most skilled staff the Gauteng area could provide. Despite this, it became clear that it was the market size of Europe, Asia and America that would provide the volumes which allowed significant research and development to take place.
At this point it was decided to start importing the market leading equipment from across the globe. Agency agreements for exclusive distribution into South Africa and surrounding countries have been entered into with Aeration Industries International (USA), EDI (USA), Asian Tec (Hong Kong) Rai Tillieres (France), Kamps (Belguim), EMO (France) and Nordic Water (Sweden) which owns the brands of MEVA, Zickert, Lamella, NCS, Dynadisc and Dynasand.
