Instramac Growing

Controlgear's "new' system integration division.... not just a "system integration division", but a fully fledged company that has been offering innovation in system integration for more than 25 years.

Dalwyn MacDonald registered Instramac CC in 1989 and is still an active partner in the business. (link_INS)

Instramac have successfully completed numerous projects during 2015 with the following brands:

- Schneider 


- Siemens

- Allen-Bradley

- Eaton

- Adroit

- Wonderware

The Controlgear relationship has brought about added benefits, because now the customer has a one-stop-turnkey-solution-provider, whereby an order can now be negotiated and placed with a single company for the design, manufacturing, and system integration. This is all done on the same premises and makes factory acceptance testing so much more convenient.

In line with Instramac's growth strategy, a highly talented software engineer, Tiaan Kruger, was employed in February 2015. He has been actively involved with one of Instramac/Controlgear's biggest projects this year where we developed a first class control system which integrates into an existing DCS. (Please click on the link to see his profile on the Controlgear Facebook Page: link_TK)

Having said that, we would just like to highlight the fact that on the 3rd of October 2015, Controlgear Products will turn 29 years old and we feel that special mention needs to go to our current Managing Director, Deon Coetzee, who had the vision back in 1986 to start a Specialist Switchgear Company. 

He is very well known and a recognised figure within the electrical switchgear industry, and much praise to him for the company consistently performing well since its inception in 1986. (Please click on the link to see his profile on the Controlgear Facebook Page: link_DC)
