Competition / Market:

On the general precision engineering supply market, there are several large competitors in Gauteng and a few Coastal. The Industry is generally and collectively under pressure as a result of the weak mining and general engineering cycle that currently persist.

On the medical supply side, some very large International suppliers dominate the playing field. They offer multi-product supply packages and representation throughout the market.
