Made in Africa – Western Cape Metals and Engineering

In this publication we focus on the metals and engineering cluster within the Western Cape manufacturing sector.

This cluster is characterised by a high level of innovation, specialised knowledge and niche manufacturing capabilities that supply most other industries and sectors with machines, production systems, components and associated services.

We review the renewable energy industry and related green economy, the oil & gas, medical devices and aerospace industries as well as other industries with export and Africa growth opportunities.

We also discuss doing business in the Western Cape as well as government incentive programmes to promote the manufacturing industry.
