Please note: We have moved premises, but don’t worry, we have not gone very far.

We’re now located at Unit 2, Park 14, 14th Avenue, Maitland.



Drive and Gear Engineering was established in Cape Town in 1999.  The company was born out of a need to provide the market with a power transmission specialist who would not only be able to supply a premium brand of engineering products, but also be able to provide a wealth of technical experience and know-how.  The founders of Drive and Gear Engineering all represented Renold Crofts in their careers, and as a result, Drive and Gear Engineering inherited decades of experience in power transmission products, and more specifically, industrial gearboxes, transmission chain, conveyor chain and fluid couplings.

Drive and Gear Engineering opened their very own repair workshop in Cape Town, to further improve their offering to clients, and this repair facility has grown from strength to strength, repairing all makes, brands and configurations of gearboxes and related products.

Over the last 21 years, Drive and Gear Engineering has also added to their range of specialised power transmission products, and these products now include, pulleys, v-belts, chains, sprockets, couplings, locking elements, other brands of industrial gearboxes, electric motors, brakes, and other specialised engineering products.

In early 2020, Drive and Gear Engineering had a change in ownership, and as a result, has become a sister company to both Bearings Distributors (Pty) Ltd and Ital Electric & Vibrating Motors (Pty) Ltd.
