A Pioneering Company
In Conveyor and Process

Striving for the pursuit of excellence in the supply of conveying and process engineering systems

Since the company’s inception in 1989, we have understood the synergy between conveyor systems and process engineering; knowing that the majority of conveyors are found within a process plant.

To this end, we have diverted all our energy in the following areas:

  • Developing an extensive range of conveyor systems
  • Developing our knowledge and expertise in the Agri-food processing sector
  • Setting up a state-of-the-art design and manufacturing facility to deliver quality products
  • Developing a range of process and blending machinery
  • Providing the best and most valuable customer service

We offer machinery as well as turnkey solutions for the intake, processing, blending, weighing and bagging of a variety of agricultural products. We are experts in moving raw materials to transform them into value-added product.

Facet Engineering was established in 1989, by present CEO, Colin Fairweather, originally as an engineering and design office, providing design, draughting and project management services to the conveying and agri-food processing industries. Shortly thereafter we set up our own manufacturing facilities, enabling us to independently produce our range of equipment. Over the years, as we grew, so did our manufacturing capacity. We now have a fully-equipped 2000m2 facility, with CNC plasma cutting equipment and a state-of-the-art machine shop.

We utilise the latest computer-aided drafting systems and software. This allows us to produce highly detailed designs, to the exact specifications and requirements of the client. With both 2D and 3D design drawing capabilities, our design office can provide our clients with accurate simulations and complete 360-degree views of an entire production plant. All manufacturing follows strict quality control procedures. We pride ourselves in producing systems and equipment of the highest industry standards, worldwide.


As a multi-faceted organisation, Facet Engineering offers two areas of specialisation; namely conveyors and material handling systems and process engineering equipment. We offer one of the largest ranges of conveyors available in Southern Africa, catering for the needs of most sectors of the market. Our range of process engineering equipment is highly specialised, predominantly supplying the agri-food sector.

The two divisions work synergistically, as almost every agri-food processing plant will have the need for conveyors and material handling equipment. Our expertise in both areas has developed over the last 30 years, along with our passion for design, high quality manufacture and client service. What makes Facet Engineering unique is our capability to expertly provide innovative, bespoke solutions to our clients.

We recognise the importance of continuously adding value throughout the food chain and we constantly strive to innovate, improve, and develop new products in our range, thus ensuring that we always meet the exact requirements of our customers and exceed their expectations.
