Endeco, an acronym for Engineering Design Company, was started initially as a design and details company by Luis Dias, in 1984. The first major break through for the company came in 1987 when Luis was contracted to design, supply and install a turnkey project for Rely Precision Castings. This included a reclamation plant, silos, a mono rail system and spincasting equipment.
Through the development of locally designed and tested equipment and the policy of continually introducing new equipment, it has enabled the company to remain in the forefront of the industry, and essentially assist foundries in import replacement. An added benefit today for foundries is that Endeco are also prepared to handle all the civil engineering aspect that is involved in installing equipment.
The range of sand plant and equipment that Endeco designs and manufactures consists of all the necessary equipment used in both green sand and chemical bonded sand projects, from a small ferrous or non-ferrous foundry to the largest semi-automatic or automatic complex, and for virtually any type, size, quality or quantity of casting. The equipment includes reclamation plant, continuous and batch mixers, rotary drums, cooler classifiers, conveying systems, compaction tables, vibrating feeders and shake-outs, rollover units, rotary screens, aerators, weighing devices and additive screw feeders.
Other equipment that Endeco has designed and manufactured includes chromite sand separators, ladles, bucket elevators, dust extractors, moulding boxes, pneumatic conveying systems, degassing units, rotary sand dryers and mould drying and coating units.
Initially Endeco outsourced all the fabrication work but since the purchase of their own premises in Alberton 19 years ago, all the manufacturing has been done in-house.
Endeco is not a consultancy to the foundry industry but offers an experienced project service with enthusiastic control from concept to commissioning of modern foundry plants engineered to the highest standards.
Endeco has established a reputation as a main contractor able to design, procure, manufacture, supply, install, commission and project manage a foundry plant and project. Every contract is rigidly programmed and progressed through regular client/contractor co-operation. Endeco has a long and proud reputation of being “on time”.
