Malvern Engineering Works was established in June 1947, as a general engineering business, servicing the mining industry.
Over the years the company expanded, manufacturing a wide range of products such as sheave wheels, heavy media drum separators, medium and low intensity magnetic separators (for ore concentration), suspended electro and permanent magnets, cyclones, sieve bends and sampling systems. In house designing of equipment started in the year 1980.
The company entered into strategic alliances with Ludowici (later acquired by FLSmidth) in 1996 for licensed manufacturing of fine and coarse coal centrifuges and with Minco-Tech, Australia for heavy media and classifying cyclones in 2007. Malvern has sales agreements with Phoenix Process Equipment Co, Huzhou Hehui Machinery Co. Ltd and Shandong Haute Magnet Technology Co.
In recent times Malvern Engineering has diversified and expanded its operations significantly. Malvern Engineering has seven group companies under its umbrella:
- Ingwenya Mineral Processing (Pty) Ltd
- Wedge Wire Industries (Pty) Ltd
- Schumar Engineering (Pty) Ltd
- Minco Malvern Process Equipment Company (Pty) Ltd
