Professional design, fabrication, grinding and resharpening of specialized cutting tooling

As our industrial machine knives and blades are an essential product for many of South Africa’s biggest food manufacturers, we want you to know that we will keep producing and distributing our tools during the Covid-19 lockdown period.

It’s our way of ensuring that food production continues and that there is continued access to groceries during the tough times ahead.

We also want you to know that we are putting the safety of our staff and families first while we do so, because people are at the heart of our business.

We will continue to produce top-quality blades, doing our part to ensure there is MORE than enough to go around.

Better days are coming. WE’RE IN THIS TOGETHER!

Our uncompromising attention to detail ensures that we manufacture and supply only the highest quality industrial cutting tools.

We manufacture for most of the local OEM’s and have had fantastic feedback from both local and international customers. Being locally-based we are able to customize our tooling to each customer’s specific needs and unlike most importers, we can engineer the tool geometries to suit the specific application of each blade.

We have worked with many clients on product improvements and with just slight modifications to existing tool designs, we have often seen noticeable improvement in tooling performance, with tool-life being extended many times over. On top of this we also offer proprietary steels which improve each blade’s sharp-life compared to tools made from inferior materials.

One of the things that sets us apart from our opposition is our storage facility, where we are able to keep key stock for customers on request. This means that should your business face a production-line stoppage, we are able to get parts to you quickly and easily, meaning less downtime whilst waiting for replacement parts.

Renlaw has built up a fantastic reputation, not only with the quality of our work, but also with our outstanding customer service, and we pride ourselves on our quick turnaround times and excellent client relations.
