Welcome to our site!
Grales Equipment was established in 1984.
In1984 Graham Millar started Grales Equipment from a small holding in the Richmond District. Later that year Grales Equipment moved to a small holding in the Howick District and in 1996 moved to its present premises in the Merrivale Industrial Extension. In 2015 Jan Serfontein who has a lifetime of experience in the dairy industry, as farmer as well as in corporate Dairy, bought the business and is running it alongside Graham Millar.
Initially the business concentrated on providing steel equipment to the pig industry and later changed over to supplying and installing galvanized steel requisites for the dairy industry.
30 Years of experience.......
We manufacture and install all the steelwork requirements in dairy parlours as well as all the steel requirements and equipment in the dairy yards. This year we celebrate 30 years in the industry and have built up a wealth of experience. We have supplied and installed the galvanized steel requirements to more than 60 herringbone and rotary dairies during this period. Our staff have gained valuable experience over these past 30 years and are able to tackle large and small tasks with a minimum of fuss.
We make a point of getting the job done in the shortest time frame without compromising on accuracy and attention to detail. Once on site the staff show their true mettle and get on with the job at hand. They are able to co-operate with other site contractors and meet agreements on installation timetables timeously.
