Investmech (Pty) Ltd is a small to medium company formed in April 1998 in Pretoria, by six people, Proff. Anton Raath Pr.Eng., Michiel Heyns Pr.Eng, Wikus van Niekerk Pr.Eng. and Messrs. Corro van Waveren Pr.Eng, Herman Booysen and Johann Wannenburg Pr.Eng.  All founders were lecturers and employees at the University of Pretoria at that time.  The company was dormant until 2001 when the Investmech directors did a management buy-out of the previously known LGI Structural Mechanics and Dynamics Group.  Through this management buy-out Investmech realised more than 20 cumulative years experience in Mechanical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Structural Mechanics, testing and other related fields.

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