ASC (Pty) Ltd is currently doubling the size of its Pietermaritzburg-based factory to make room for the new large fully integrated automatic casting cell. This development is a sign of the company's confidence in the long term future of the automotive industry and is based on an understanding of the industries' requirements. Commented Managing Director, Mike Wolhuter, "ASC has supplied companies such as Ford, Autoliv, Bosch and Visteon over the past thirteen years. We have the necessary engineering expertise to satisfy their requirements and upgrading our manufacturing facilities was the next step to ensure that we can meet future requirements." This level of automation is vital to the long term sustainability of the company and critical for the type of work currently on offer by the OEM Automotive companies.
ASC is an innovative niche supplier of machined aluminium castings and subassemblies to the local and international automotive industry and is a division of Pressure Die Castings (Pty) Ltd. Our approach is to start from the customer's need exploring various design options until the best process solution is identified giving customers confidence that the final process meets their requirements.
