Sugar cane testing & analysis equipment for the Sugar Cane Milling industry.

Maintenance Engineering Services CC was established in 1996, with it’s core activity being the design, supply and maintenance of the equipment used by the South African Sugar Association Cane Testing Service. This comprises the equipment used to sample and analyse consignments of cane delivered to the cane factory, for payment to the cane suppliers.

The company has since expanded its footprint beyond Kwa-Zulu Natal; providing equipment, spares and consultation to neighbouring Swaziland, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania and Kenya and as far abroad as USA & Brasil.

The company was founded by Anton Stein who is a graduate Electrical Engineer (University of Natal, Durban) and a member of the SA Institute of Electrical Engineers, who was employed by the South African Sugar Association Cane Testing Service for 26 years, at their Head Office and then as Maintenance Manager at their workshop in Mt Edgecombe.

In late 2011, the company moved to new premises in Glen Anil.

The company is a member of the Durban Chamber of Commerce and Industry and is also VAT registered.
