Founded in 1981 to service the textile industry in Kwa-Zulu Natal, we are now renowned as specialists in high-quality precision machining, based in Westmead, Durban. Our highly skilled employees are engaged in engineering, production, sheet-metal work, construction and assembly for a diverse range of clientele on a daily basis.
The structure of our company is characterised by flexibility and direct lines of communication, which is made possible by the combination and integration of all the company’s disciplines in one location. We pride ourselves on offering tailor-made, intelligent engineering solutions that always meet our client’s requirements. We also offer a network of top quality suppliers, specialised skills and rapid turn-around time.

Protea Engineering continuously strives to contribute to the sustainable development of society through the manufacture and use of innovative and quality products.

We aim to create stable, long-term growth through the practice of openness and fairness in our corporate activities – while seeking to create harmony between people, society and the environment through our manufacturing.

Social Responsibility

The importance we place on CSR is demonstrated by the fact that it is a pillar of our business strategy. Alongside this, growth and productivity will always remain key to the success of our business.

Accepting corporate social and environmental responsibilities as well as giving back to the community, makes good business sense to us at Protea Engineering. Businesses cannot always deliver every solution and companies can rarely act alone. Partnerships are vital, and therefore we work closely with our community organisations. Our vision is to adopt and support local development programmes based in the Valley of 1000 Hills and in the process empower and uplift our young and “not so young”.
Protea Engineering supports 1000 Hills Community Helpers as well as many other charities throughout the year.
