Lektratek was originally formed in 1975 and developed to such an extent that it was decided to split the specialised sections into three separate companies during 1988.
This was the date when Lektratek Water Technology was formed with the purpose to specialise solely in the supply, installation and commissioning of mechanical, electrical and instrumentation work relating to water, sewage, industrial effluent treatment and similar projects.
The business developed with leaps and bounds resulting in the development of a substantial product manufacturing range and a significant reference list of successful installations. It was then decided to specialize in the sewage/effluent sector and this has been the forte of Lektratek Water Technology for the past years.
One of the reasons for the success has been the decision to commit the company to the design and manufacture of products that are of high quality, operate reliably, are long lasting and require minimal maintenance.
This core value has earned an excellent reputation with consulting engineers and end users alike and to this day, this commitment is paramount in all our activities.
The head office is situated in Potchefstroom (North West) with branch offices established in the Western Cape, Eastern Cape and Botswana to compliment the services offered and provide local representation and service facilities.
All activities relating to design, provision of drawings, manufacturing of equipment, transport to site, installation and commissioning are done ‘in-house’ by permanently employed and experienced personnel. Some of the personnel have related experience in excess of twenty-five years in their particular field.
The majority of the shares in Lektratek Water Technology are now held black owned with more than 10% Female Black owned and consequently we hold a BBBEE level 2 certified status as well as Construction Industry Development Board level 8 ME grade (107503).
An able and experienced team of professional registered engineers are responsible for the selection and design of equipment at tender stage, responsible for final engineering of equipment required for contracts and the development of new products. Adaptations to standard designs can be easily done where required.
A team of experienced design draftsmen support the engineers and we have the capability to supply drawings produced on CAD and 3D Modeling software Solid Edge.
Manufacturing facilities of Lektratek Water Technology comprise of three fully equipped workshops equipped with seven overhead cranes and a total floor area of 10 000 m². We have two storage facilities with a total floor area of 2 500m² where manufactured goods and bought-in equipment like pumps and gearboxes etc are stored and cessioned in designated contract bays prior to delivery. Our offices (total floor area of 300 m²) are also on the same 12 000 m² premises.
All workshops are equipped with the necessary machinery and equipment to manufacture equipment to stringent quality standards in a variety of materials as required by highly qualified personnel.
We are proud of the fact that Lektratek Water Technology is the only company in South Africa that can manufacture certain equipment that no other local company can do (i.e. Archimedean screw pumps, sludge dewatering machines, etc)
Corrosion protection of mild steel (airless and conventional spraying) as well as pickling and passivation and bead blasting of stainless steel is carried out in-house.
Lektratek Water Technology operates a fleet of light delivery vehicles as well as trucks (4 and 10 ton fitted with cranes) for the transportation of installation personnel and equipment. Except for certain installations and large items of equipment the truck-mounted cranes are used extensively for offloading and positioning equipment on site.
