About Us

Anderson and Kerr has a rich and full history. We always strive to celebrate our origins while looking to the future for improvement and growth.

Anderson and Kerr Engineering (Pty) Ltd was established in 1974 by Mr. Anderson and Mr. Kerr. In 1983 Japie Coetzee joined the business and acquired full control of the business in 1998. It was during this time that the company undertook a major upgrade and immense growth. Through Japie’s leadership and experience Anderson and Kerr made major strides in the design, manufacture and remanufacturing of hydraulic and pneumatic products. This resulted in the company being the supplier to Komatsu mining in Germany and Komatsu Southern Africa, amongst others. In the machining and engineering services it was at this time that Anderson and Kerr designed and manufactured cylinders as well as undertaking large size machining work for blue chip companies, such as ArcelorMittal, Highveld Steel, Columbus Stainless and Saldanha Steel, Hulamin, Frankwin Forge, FL Schidt, Hytec, Hydac etc.

In June 2016 Isipho Capital Holdings acquired 90% equity, a deal facilitated by the IDC (Industrial Development Corporation) which not only empowers the business but has in its structure the empowerment of staff. The new investors bring as part of the mandate operational and strategic involvement in the business. Given this transaction, Anderson and Kerr is now a proudly level 4 BBBEE company. This now positions the business to retain and extent current customers whilst also pursuing and attracting new customers, particularly in the State-Owned Enterprise (SOE), the mining sector, throughout Africa, etc. Isipho Capital Holdings brings with it Smith Capital Equipment which is now a proud customer to Anderson and Kerr for the design, manufacture and reconditioning of hydraulic cylinders.

In our pursuit to entrenching our position as a world class organization we have enrolled the services of Productivity SA on a 3-year term to implement best practices in lean manufacturing. Coupled with this project we are continuously harnessing the capabilities, experience and knowledge of the total work force and improving safety and environmental issues.
