About Us

Recognizing the value of this considerable experience and technical know-how, African Heating Gas Division has been offering their services to clients since early 1994.  The rapid acceptance of African Heating Gas Division by the industry is evidence that clients appreciate the fast, responsive, reliable and professional services, which is the corner stone of African Heating Gas Division’s value system

Field Personnel

African Heating Gas Division employs a substantial core group of supervisors, technicians and semi-skilled trade assistants.

In addition to the core group African Heating Gas Division can mobilize additional skilled staff, of the required quality, at short notice.  This includes technicians and all necessary equipment to complete the job.

As a small expanding company we are not required to have a safety officer yet.  We have however decided to employ a Safety Officer as it is in our best interest to bring the company to a higher compliancy level.  We strive to ensure that safety comes first.

Quality Assurance

Our mission is to offer clients a responsive and competitive service, which consistently meets the technical requirements.  In line with engineering tradition, quality is assured through our Quality Management System, which is in line with ISO 9002 requirements.

All equipment is serviced regularly and repaired when needed by an independent contractor, and inspected in accordance with an agreed inspection plan before being released for use by African Heating Gas Division.

Relevant equipment measuring and control instruments are calibrated in accordance with approved procedures.

Heat treatment technicians are carefully selected and their competency evaluated at regular intervals.  All technicians receive in-house training.
