We have and continue to use state-of-the-art equipment to successfully compete in the market place.

Supply on Demand

We have been producing OEM mining components for SECO, Boart Longyear, and Tranter for the past 30 years. This background has got us to the point where we know what items are in constant demand and we hold all the fast moving stock items so that supply is available on demand.

Ongoing Improvement

We consistently look to improve ourselves in all areas we are involved in. Development and research in the rock drilling field for future applications is part of our every day practice so we stay ahead of our competitors. As per our policy, customer satisfaction is our main objective.


Mission and Goal

It is our mission and goal to be the prime manufacturer and supplier of quality, trustworthy, cost efficient and effective engineering and drilling products to the platinum, gold and other industries in South Africa Sub Saharan Africa, Canada and South America.

We have been extremely “marketing-active” over the last few years, promoting our company and products. We have particularly become more pro-active in the rock drill mining field with great success. Our campaigns have resulted in us supplying close to 72% of the rock drill / roof bolt and spares needs for one of the largest mines in South Africa and a growing share in other leading mines.

The signing of contracts with other large mines are in progress and nearing finalisation. NASA has also been accepted unconditionally to supply new customers in Canada, Zambia, Ghana, Zimbabwe and Botswana.

We are supremely confident that the quality of our products and level of service has and will continue to be THE determining factor in NASA being selected as the company of choice time and again. Our experience and expertise are highly sought after because we have and continue to add tremendous value to the clients we supply.
