Memberships

Mining Equipment Manufacturers of South Africa (MEMSA), an industry cluster established in 2016 with the support of the Department of Trade, Industry and Competition (dtic), works hard to build a competitive advantage for South African mining equipment manufacturers by providing access to key markets and championing existing and future local technology and innovation.
