ABOUT US

AFC

Allied Furnace Consultants "AFC" was established in January 2005 by its founding members Tertius Pieters and Malcolm Theron.

AFC is a designer and fabricator of core technology equipment for AC and DC Furnaces locally and internationally. We have our own fabrication facility based in Jet Park, Johannesburg where all our equipment is fabricated and tested. We believe that this is the main reason for our success story as we continuously improve our designs and fabrication technology in our own facility making our products robust and efficient. AFC’s after sales capabilities are supported by our unique business model as we can do refurbishment and improvements on equipment cost effectively within a short lead time which is unmatched in the industry.
