Engineered to Stand Out from the Crowd

Owner Shaun Govender established Engineering Solutions in 2008 by purchasing an existing engineering company. Although this KwaZulu-Natal based company had the equipment and skills to offer specialist turner machining, tool and die, jig making, boiler making, welding and maintenance services, it needed something special to make it stand out from the other 25 engineering businesses in the area.

Shaun approached Seda for guidance. We developed a comprehensive marketing plan to help the company identify potential customers and effectively market the company’s services to them. Since adopting the plan and implementing it with vigour, Engineering Solutions has secured contracts with large customers including Richards Bay Minerals and Transnet, leading to an increase of 400% in the company’s turnover. Seda has also assisted Engineering Solutions achieve ISO 9000 certification. Currently the company employs six people.
