CFW Projects leads the way in designing and manufacturing industrial equipment. We have undertaken numerous large projects in the fields of industrial drying, production line design and autocatalyst manufacturing equipment. CFW Projects strives to provide the best overall value in integrated industrial systems, emphasising durability and energy-efficiency as the elements that minimise lifetime costs. We are exceptionally well-positioned to design, integrate and assemble electromechanical systems according to the customer’s requirements.



CFW Projects is part of the CFW Industries group. Our head offices are in Cape Town, with a branch in Johannesburg and partners and agencies supplying our products in key areas throughout South Africa.

Many companies can supply components for electrical and mechanical systems, but CFW has the expertise to manage the entire project and completely integrate all aspects of our work into the factory production line.

We offer:

  • Products that follow international best practices, backed by a quality guarantee.
  • Solutions custom-designed to suit the customer’s application.
  • Timeous delivery.
  • Competitive prices.
  • A sustainable, competitive business model based on continuous market research and product development.
  • Superb service, including a variety of after-sales and consultation services.
  • Continually improving professional design expertise and staff.
  • A multidisciplined resource base, pool of intellectual property and in-house manufacturing enabling us to provide more complete solutions.
  • Full turnkey projects with project handling from start to finish.

This eliminates many hidden costs involving wasted time and future system and equipment problems. Not every manufacturer can quickly and efficiently integrate material-handling, process and ancillary equipment into a larger system.

The CFW group employs more than 200 permanent staff members and has a modern manufacturing facility of more than 20,000 m². CFW Projects can design, develop and engineer custom-made equipment to suit our clients’ needs. We employ a team of sales engineers to assist with product selection and have demonstrated our commitment to customer service and success over many years.

Product Design and Development

Years of experience and close association with various authorities in the fields of fluid flow, thermodynamics, noise control and machine design have contributed significantly to the pool of intellectual property held by the company. The value we add through engineering innovation has earned us a prestigious award from a leader in the catalyst industry.

Our design team includes mechanical designers, electrical designers and PLC programmers. Mechanical design is done in 3D CAD, using SolidWorks, and electrical designs are in E-Plan. CFW Projects usually use Siemens and Allen-Bradley control systems, but alternative makes can be requested.

Our in-house research and development laboratory provides testing facilities for back pressure, airflow characteristics, drying and calcination tests.

Where new design concepts are developed with a customer’s input, a secrecy agreement can be signed.


Our manufacturing facility is constantly upgraded to incorporate the latest in CAD/CAM, thus ensuring competitiveness, consistency and quality. We use various modern CNC machines to make parts and construct high-quality products.


Innovating and making quality products that can withstand the rigours of modern industrial duty has been an essential building block in our success. Our in-house quality department ensures high quality on all our products.

We benchmark our equipment against the high European manufacturing standards and, where necessary, all exported equipment complies with the European safety standards (CE).

A high degree of consistency is attained by calibrating our measuring devices at regular intervals.

Customer Service

A solutions-driven sales approach, combined with dedication to after-sales service, has gained CFW Projects the reputation of being a company that stands by its products. From original enquiry through purchase order to after-sales service, we remain committed to customer satisfaction.

A consulting service is offered to those customers requiring design assistance.
