Globen Engineering Services and Supplies (Pty) Ltd, began trading on 1st September 2015, as a Company specializing in Sourcing, Procurement, Service and Support of Plant & Equipment used in the Foundry Industry.

Its founder, Eric A Benvenuti, has hands-on practical experience, gained in the foundry industry since 1965, when he began his career, with a Company that ran three foundries – one in Vereeniging, one in Johannesburg and one in Alrode, Gauteng.

After several mergers and buyouts involving the Alrode foundry, Benvenuti eventually remained at the foundry in Alrode, Alberton, and spent most of this time at that foundry as the Director in charge of Foundry Operations and Engineering.

Amongst many other projects, the biggest project that he was involved with, was the commissioning of a new +1000ton per month “greenfield” High Chromium Iron Foundry at MIS Engineering in 2013. Upon its founding, Globen Engineering, was approached by Vulcan Engineering Co. (VECO) and other Foundry Equipment OEMs to represent and partner with them in the Southern African sub-continent. It presented an opportunity not to be missed, especially since Benvenuti had previous experience with their equipment.

Globen Engineering now embraces the advanced technology that these partners now bring to the South African Foundry Industry. Globen Engineering's partners are well established and are managed and staffed by highly experienced hands-on foundry people – who know their business.

Globen Engineering together with its international partners offers equipment and solutions from a hands-on knowledge of the foundry processes and daily challenges, whether the need is a single piece of equipment, or a complete turnkey “concept-to-completion” project.
