Hydraulic and Pneumatic Export Cluster (HAPEC)

The Hydraulic and Pneumatic Export Cluster formed under the umbrella of the SACEEC early 2018. HAPEC has the objective to strengthen local manufacturing companies with their exports into the global market. The aim for the hydraulic and pneumatic industry is to grow its presence firstly into Africa, Australia and the Americas and into other parts of the world. Through support of the dti, the aim is to designate hydraulic and pneumatic products in order to support local procurement from procuring entities.

Rail Equipment Cluster of South Africa (RECSA)

RECSA is the latest cluster formed in early 2017 under the auspices of the SACEEC. RECSA’s objective is to foster collaboration between manufacturing companies in the rolling stock Capital Equipment Industry in order to grow the sector’s capacity, expertise and export readiness. Furthermore, the aim of the cluster is to provide a platform of engagement with relevant stakeholders and industry players to address the various challenges the industry is facing.


The Valve and Actuator Manufacturers Cluster of South Africa (VAMCOSA) was formed in July 2011 and works within the dti’s designated cluster parameters. VAMCOSA’s focus is to bring local valve and actuator manufacturers together in order to create a common focus and goal for the respective industries. VAMCOSA provides an effective platform for its members to engage with government and state owned companies through designated channels of the dti and the SACEEC with regard to industry specific concerns.


SAMPEC aims to be representative of the full value chain of industry from EPCM’s through to equipment manufacturers, component manufactures, service providers and logistics. The vision of the cluster is directed towards increasing opportunities for local supply to the South African mining sector creating economies-of-scale thus positively influencing its members’ global competitiveness.

South African Capital Equipment Export Council

The South African Capital Equipment Export Council (SACEEC) is a non-profit organisation established as a Public Private Partnership between the South African capital equipment machinery and equipment manufacturers and related service suppliers and the South African Department of Trade and Industry (the dti), mandated to facilitate the globalisation of its members thereby allowing them to grow their businesses through exporting.


MCLI was established in 2004 by infrastructure investors, users and service providers on the Maputo Corridor to address constraints hindering freight movement and to market the viability of the corridor for regional trade. Its partnership of public and private sector members and proactive role has resulted in visibility, credibility and acknowledgement as a model corridor management institution.

Resulting from investment in key infrastructure, the corridor has been a powerful instrument of regional and economic integration; with over $5billion invested in the region since its inception, resultant capital flow has provided sustained economic growth on the corridor in recent years.

Inherent to MCLI’s success is its leveraging of relationships at the highest level to pursue its vision of a cost effective, reliable logistics route.
