2015 has definitely been a flagship year for world-class foundry Steloy Castings. Steloy Castings celebrated 30 years of service with a business breakfast attended by loyal customers, industry bodies, as well as media. Furthermore, Steloy embarked on a competition inviting University of Johannesburg, 3rd year metallurgy students specialising in foundry studies, to submit an essay outlining the urgent measures that need to be taken to revitalise the foundry industry.
Following a rigorous judging procedure, University of Johannesburg student Thandi Mnyakeni was selected as the winner of a1 year internship at Steloy Castings.
As a leader in the industry the company continued to intensify their efforts to ensure maximum compliance in the various industries in which they operate. Looking specifically at accreditations, in June 2015, Steloy became the first Southern African foundry to receive IRIS (International Railway Industry Standards) accreditation, in addition to the following certificates:
- ISO 9001
- ISO 14000
- OSHAS 18000
- PED: Pressure Equipment Directive
- IRIS: International Railway Industry Standards
According to Danie, customers looking to buy and use casting products apply a stringent criteria when selecting a foundry supplier or partner. The criteria is essential to pay the best possible price for the highest quality casting in a highly pressurized environment.
He further adds, Steloy Castings, as a foundry supplier, respects the criteria laid out by our customers and potential customers. Our challenge which we have met and will continue to meet is to be a sustainable supplier, to maintain quality and service over the long-term and to remain a trusted and preferred supplier of quality products at the lowest possible.”
As we wrap up 2015 we look forward to making 2016 yet another year filled with high quality sustainable success for Steloy Castings and our respected and appreciated partners, suppliers and media locally as well as internationally.
