|About AW Automotive
Founded in 1979, AW Automotive introduced its flameproof electric starter later
that year. This led to the manufacture of flameproof alternators, hooters, lights and
sirens. Although the products proved to be highly successful, the inner section of the
alternator was imported. After many months of intensive research and development the
company was able to announce it's first 100% locally manufactured alternator. The
alternator, designed specifically for a flame and waterproof environment, became
an instant success.
Outside the flameproof industry, AW Automotive repairs and modifies mining
equipment such as LHD differentials, gearboxes, hydraulic/pneumatic starters, pumps,
etc. High quality standards which enforced by company policy have ensured the company's
success and has brought confidence to the many mining houses utilizing
AW Automotives products.

Being primarily a local manufacturing company, our main concern is in the end user
satisfaction. We therefore welcome comments, favourable and unfavourable,
which may help guide our continuous development efforts in product reliability.
