Formex Industries is proud of the quality automotive components that it produces at its manufacturing facility in Port Elizabeth. The company can also ensure that these vehicle parts are delivered efficiently to meet customer expectations. Formex products are used on locally-manufactured vehicles and exported to 1st Tier suppliers around the world.

We strive to be an authority in the design and manufacture of automotive components. Formex specializes in a number of complex metal parts for a range of vehicle types. The company recently purchased three brand new metal presses that allow us to work with high-quality materials and produce world-class products for our automotive customers.

“We’ve just invested R70 million by bringing in three new presses that are now ready to produce, so what we’re doing now is going out and speaking to all our clients to ensure that we reach capacity on these machines and hopefully also create work opportunities by doing so,” says Formex chief executive officer Hennie Venter.

Formex produces quality components

Our engineering standards make us a globally-competitive manufacturer of vehicle parts. We have numerous certifications, including an ISO 9001 and IATF 16949 quality management certificates. Being based in South Africa also brings the opportunity for competitive pricing structures. These two factors have helped to establish Formex as a leading brand in the manufacturing industry.

“Thanks to our dual focus on transformation and investment we’re perfectly positioned to realise the immense opportunities inherent in the automotive industry and to assist others to do so by achieving their full compliance and other benefits,” explains Venter.

Formex Industries is located in Port Elizabeth – an important transport hub with strong links to national roads and railways, as well as international airports and seaports. Our proximity to these logistics networks makes for efficient delivery of our products to our local and international customers.

We are proud of the products we produce and our contributions to the automotive industry. Formex can assure clients of the quality of our vehicle components and the timely delivery of these products to their doorstep, no matter where they are based.
