Honingcraft stocks well over 1,000 tonnes of hydraulic tubing and chrome bars with an added 100 tonnes of cast iron. It operates the world’s most sophisticated honing technology and proudly stands as a leader in its field. With a need to deliver more services faster, Honingcraft has expanded its product and service offering by acquiring Moser Hardchrome and Jünger Engineering, adding chroming, grinding, on-site line boring and metal spray services to its honing facility.
Moser Industries was the first specialist chroming businesses in South Africa and is a proud part of industrial chroming history and the chrome industry as a whole. When it was acquired in 2011, it had 30 employees who shared a combined 500 years of experience in the chroming industry.
Industrial hard chroming has been around since 1920, and modern techniques were first used successfully by Fink in the USA and Liebreich in Germany. French Engineering Works (FEW) brought chroming technology to Africa to serve the repair needs of the newly mechanised mines of the late 1940s. FEW experienced great success with its hard chroming techniques, and in 1946 a separate company was started to focus solely on the mining service business. It was named Moser Industries. Moser is a company built on experience and is a proud part of chrome history and the chrome industry in South Africa. Through Moser Industries, commercial chroming became available to manufacturers in South Africa.
Jünger Engineering was founded in 1971 by Mr. Jürn Jünger. He was born in Berlin in 1941 and settled in South Africa after travelling from Berlin to Cape Town on a 4 seater bicycle with his brother and two friends. The journey took 21 months to complete. With a character larger than life and an aptitude for problem solving, he became the ‘go-to’ person for solving engineering problems. Mr Jünger is well known as one of the brilliant minds in the local Mechanical Engineering industry. Jünger Engineering was the perfect vehicle for Honingcraft and Moser to gain access to the marine hydraulic industry in Port Elizabeth and the greater Eastern Cape. In 2015 Honingcraft acquired Jünger, and Honingcraft Jünger was born.
