About Us

Experience Excellence

Investmech was formed in April 1998 by a group of 6 lecturers and employees from the University of Pretoria. The company was dormant until 2001 when the Investmech directors did a buy-out of the previously known LGI Structural Mechanics and Dynamics Group. Through this management buy-out, Investmech realised more than 20 years of cumulative experience in Mechanical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Structural Mechanics, Testing and various other related fields.

The Investmech Team

Where We Are Now

Since the buy-out in 2001, Investmech has since expanded and now serves four distinct niche market segments with specialist groups, namely Investmech Testing Services (ITS), Investmech Consulting Engineering (ICE), Investmech Business Consulting (IBC) and Investmech Products.

We are ISO 9001:2000 certified and network with various institutions, companies and experts in various fields to enable the company to deliver products and services of exceptional quality and standard.

Our Goal

Our goal is sustainable profitability to generate sustainable financial and operational growth in the interest of our stakeholders.

Our Motto

We shall deliver product in a class of its own; we shall not compromise in our quest to seek and accept only the best; we are perfectionists in consulting, all anchored in our faith in God Almighty.
