Winding & Hoisting
Our engineering team produces winder solutions that focus on the customer’s need to maximise productivity, while evaluating safety, site conditions, skills availability and other considerations.
The greater depths at which mines are extracting raw materials present greater and greater challenges in providing efficient and safe winder solutions. Winches & Winders has vast experience since 1928 in meeting these challenges using qualified engineering staff capable of reliable and innovative design solutions and project management.
All projects are completed using the group’s modern engineering expertise and unique innovative thinking in applications ranging from materials hauling through shaft sinking winding solutions, to mines rescue, where we have pioneered mobile winding applications.
We have a fully operational CAD department, with Finite Element Analysis in house, backed up by efficient administrative and clerical staff, all geared to provide a quality service to our customers.
Fulton winders are renowned for their robust reliability, with over 6,000 Fulton winches, winders and hoists having been installed in South Africa and internationally.
All of our business processes use a certified quality management system in accordance with the DIN EN ISO Standards 9001:2008.
Customer satisfaction is our primary goal.
We deliver maximum quality, reliability and safe operating efficiency, always in accordance with legislation and optimization for safety.
