CPM Engineering

CPM is owned equally by Doug Fenner and Othmar Heeb. CPM was founded 1992 and has grown steadily since we opened. The management of CPM have vast experience with regard to the design and manufacture of conveyor pulleys and locking elements. Each of the directors and managers have an average of 21 years experience in the conveyor industry.


 In the last 12 months we have spent 3.5 million on new and the latest machines (machine tools) to keep up with production and we have R2m equipment on order. Export work has increased dramatically over the last 3 years.

CPM has exported to Chile, Germany, Australia, USA, India, Qatar, Zimbabwe, Oman, Zambia, Kenya, Botswana, Angola, Ghana, Zambia, Russia, and Columbia.

We are at this time busy with steady orders from USA. We are busy moving into a separate building for expansion. This will be 1200 m2 and will be approx 7 km away from the existing factory. We hope to expand into other factors/products of the conveyor industry.

We are busy with a contract for Phola Coal (Anglo Coal) through DRA and the Ngezi Project for DRA/Sandvik for Zimpltas in Zimbabwe.

CPM can average up to 250 units a month depending on size. CPM has been called one of the biggest conveyor pulley manufacturers in the world, ie in the top 4, by one of the worlds most well known bearing companies. These figures were based on bearing purchases over a two year period.

CPM designs and manufactures pulleys to suit your particular application and requirements. Our engineers have developed computer programmes which embody every facet of design. These designs are updated regularly to ensure that the latest technology and sophistication are incorporated.

Our computer programmes ensure that our many years in designing and manufacturing conveyor pulleys is readily available to our clients. They put the benefit of our clients, the total analysis, specifications and requirements, so that they can be sure of the best pulley at the most economic prices for any given application.

Further developments in design enable CPM to produce FEA (finite element analysis) for any particular pulley, on request. CPM also manufactures a full range of rigid flange couplings and locking elements. CPM makes pulleys designed exclusively for your project. CPM is a listed company in accordance with ISO 9001 (which includes for quality assurance and design). This ensures that our high standard of design and manufacture is always maintained.
