Humble Beginnings
From humble beginnings, manufacturing the inner structure of chairs and tables for Bakos Brothers (furniture) to creative and artistic works such as the carriage for the Cinderella Production, Mission Engineering have come along way from just 3 employees.
In 1992 Mission Engineering moved into 32 Stevens Street, Johannesburg and established their first business premises. By this time they had acquired an additional staff member and started developing products, which included non-penetrating satellite masts for Transtel.

Diversifying
Mission then went into development (1994) of "mobile satellite units" with off-road capabilities. This unit boasted 16 telephone lines, 4 fax lines and a video conferencing facility. This patented unit is still in production and is undergoing constant technological evolution. During this time, however, the furniture division started to grow rapidly and Mission then moved into 6 Hays Street. In 1994, new machinery was acquired which included the first rolling machine (valued at R250, 000). Due to the purchase of this equipment, Mission was able to increase their diversity and quality of service. This led to lucrative business ventures that were forged with Eskom, Telkom and Transtel. An exclusive hardware supplier deal was established wit Transtel and considerable work was obtained from Eskom including construction work, mini towers and bird guards. Quality approval by such large corporates were very favorable, and they were extremely pleased with the product which resulted in increased turnover.

Skill Development
In 1998 Mission Engineering moved to 66 Wepener Street (Booysens). Capacity was increased, and the following additional skills were introduced: spot welders, TIG welders, MIG welders, and aluminum welding. At this point, the furniture division had slowed down, due to more effort being placed on corporate ventures. Construction had increased (exclusive supplier to Wilson Bailey for hospitals) introducing more bending of steel, structured steel work, and new innovations including mounting of CAT scan machinery and X-ray machines. This eliminated the need need to import equipment from Germany.

Specialists in the Industry
The increased profitability strengthened employment to 8 permanent employees and 13 contract workers (installation work). Mission Engineering became a specialist in stainless steel, an exclusive market that was difficult to penetrate at the time. Mission, however was up to the challenge and performed extremely well in stainless steel and welding applications.



In 1998 Mission patented the bird guard, which became a very successful product. At the moment Mission Engineering's premises are being outgrown due to the demand for this product.

Mission Engineering aim to expand into the Laser cutting industry and are currently engaged in talks with the IDC (Industrial Development Corporation) and DTI (Department of Trade and Industry) to spur this business initiative. This includes a pre-approved, 30% incentive for two years (R7 Million investment). This type of service output offered was only previously conducted by large corporates; and Mission Engineering can now proudly be regarded as the first Black company to offer such services.

Mission's aggressive marketing and service performance aims for it to become one of the biggest engineering companies in the country.

Mission Engineering believes in being aggressive and strategic with regard to technology, and adopt a dynamic and adaptive stance in the industry. Mission Engineering will be moving to new premises in JHB North and will consolidate on their exponential growth.

At Mission Engineering, we have diversified our Environmental Engineering Division to produce superior quality Environmental Products that cater to specific problems including Animal Electrocutions, Collisions, Streamers, Pollution, Nesting, Small Mammals and Reptiles.

Where?
Electrical faults on transmission lines are an important source of power  disturbances. These faults have a  variety of causes, including fires, ice  storms, lightning, insulator pollution, animal electrocutions, and equipment failure. An important faulting mechanism that has to date been largely overlooked, is bird streamers.



Click to enlargeHow?
Long streams of excrement released by large birds, either perched or in flight or near a transmission line tower, can cause a flashover. A streamer that bridges the distance between the earth plane, namely the steel tower and a bird perched on it above the insulator, and the nearest live hardware point, acts as a fuse and results in an electrical fault. Physiologically, only larger birds can cause such outages.


The Solution
In the late 1990's, Eskom, South Africa's national electricity supplier, started to experiment with bird guards on transmission lines to reduce faults caused by bird streamers. Following on from the successes obtained, it embarked on a national program of fitting bird guards to transmission lines to reduce streamer faults. A multidisciplinary team was formed during 1999 to investigate and motivate this project and in the winter of 2000 installation commenced and was completed early in 2002. This resulted in a reduction of 76% in line faults within twelve months, with 10 of 18 lines fitted with bird guards not recording any streamer faults since installation. This represents a reduction from an all time high of 149 streamer faults in 2000 to an all time low of only 36 faults for 2001.

Mobile Satellite Unit
In 1994 Mission Engineering developed their "mobile satellite units" with off-road capabilities. This unit boasted 16 telephone lines, 4 fax lines and a video conferencing facility. This patented unit is still in production and is undergoing constant technological evolution. The mobile satellite unit proved to be a very lucrative business venture at the time, since the product was reasonably priced, new to the industry and required no importing from the US. Furthermore, the unit passed wind speed tests (120km/hour) with a 2.4m dish, was highly durable (SABS certified), and was exported (10, 000 units) throughout Africa. This product penetrated the market since there was a need for masts that could easily be installed in Africa without any equipment installation.

Fixed Satellite Mounting
Mission also secured an exclusive deal with Transtel to manufacture and supply fixed satellite dish masts.








Hospital Equipment Mounting

Through an exclusive supplier deal with Wilson Bailey, Mission Engineering has serviced many engineering requirements in the medical field. These include oxygen-heating coils for respirators, sterilization units manufactured in stainless steel and foundation systems for the CAT Scan and X-Ray Machine.

<% ' Equipment Mounting Case "10" %>

Overview
Steel has always been restrictive in its manipulation. Bending and Rolling however, has given steel versatility. Previously when steel was bent, it collapsed or distorted the profile, however with specialized equipment it can be bent and retain the shape and profile without distortion. Steel can now be used in a whole host of applications previously unheard of. It can be used to replace wooden parts and plastic parts and is strong and versatile. Furthermore, steel can be welded and will maintain integrity. Labour can be reduced from 40 hours to one hour on site. The application of steel bending and rolling can be seen in many architectural, automotive, home and office settings.

Mission Engineering boasts the biggest Steel Rolling Machine to come into South Africa in 20 years. The Tauring CN 150 Bending and Rolling Machine is a CNC controlled unit (programmable) and is the only one in the country with such capabilities and technologies. It is capable of bending a whole range of profiles and can bend anything from 10mm to 168mm and includes square profiles to I-beam profiles. Mission Engineering currently have two machines, the APLHA and the DELTA series.

Profiles
These universal bending machines are capable of producing any kind of profile suitable for manufacturing heavy structures and carpentry in general. Their functional features include 3 driving rolls and double independent adjusted bending machines, which can produce:

Tubes Coils, Rails,Pipes
Flats and angles Flanges, Fifth wheels, Circles
Standard and special profiles Railway Tracks, Guardrails, Protection guards

Mission Engineering also offer excellent skill in Mandrel bending of aluminium, copper, steel and stainless steel for the furniture and engineering applications. To view Profile details, click on the following links (These are high resolution images and may take some time to download).
