Heli Engineering commenced business in June 1964 as a fabrication and general engineering shop.
Through the years Heli entered into the machine tool trade by signing a manufacturing agreement with Pearson Machine Tools to manufacture their range of pressbrakes and guillotines under license in South Africa. This was then followed by a similar manufacturing agreement with Verrina of Italy.
With the knowledge gained from these agreements, Heli proceeded to design and manufacture their own range of pressbrakes and guillotines locally.
With the passing of the original founder in 2012, the 2nd generation and current shareholders have changed the focus of the company and increased the product range to encompass current market trends and requirements and offer the following products
HELI EB range of Pressbrakes with N/C controls
