Ringrollers to relocate

After four decades in Springs on Johannesburg’s East Rand, Ringrollers moves to Duncanville, Vereeniging

The new Ringrollers facility is expected to be fully operational by July 2012.

Established in 1972, Ringrollers is a division of the DCD-DORBYL Group and is a forging and rolling company servicing the rolling-stock, mining and industrial markets by producing railway tyres, tram tyres, seamless rings and flanges. The manufacture of railway tyres accounts for the main portion of its business.

Stephan Nel, general manager of Ringrollers, says that the company been experiencing steady growth and that by 2005 it became evident that it had reached space capacity on its existing site and that expansion was necessary to meet increasing demand for its products.

“This investment will secure the future of Ringrollers,” Nel says. “The potential international market for our products is huge. At the moment we’ve got less than 1% of the total world market. Our growth is being dictated by exporting some 55% of what we produce and demand is growing rapidly. Locally, there is also increased demand for our products and the new facility will allow us to accommodate this increasing demand without constraint.”

About 40 new staff members at all levels will be recruited in the Vereeniging area once the new facility comes on stream.
