Founded in 1952, Union Engineering served primarily the Agricultural, Mining, Transport and Construction sectors by providing precision Milling, Welding and Sheet Metal Working services in and around Bloemfontein.

By focussing on work excellence and ethical conduct, Mr Geeringh (Sr.) propelled the business into the “big league” and the business expanded rapidly during the 1970’s and 80’s and started taking on  maintenance and structural repairs on earth moving equipment, trucks and other rolling stock.

When André joined his dad in the 1980’s, the company underwent a further growth phase when line  boring and other specialised major maintenance and rebuilding jobs on earth moving equipment were added to the range of services on offer.
