Our fabrication business unit

TDS Group specialises in steel fabrication for the mining and industrial sectors. At our dedicated facility located in Odendaalsrus in the Free State Goldfields, we average a production output of 100 tons per month.

TDS was originally founded in 1983. The management team at the time oversaw the construction of TDS’ full manufacturing facility. After experiencing several market related challenges and setbacks, TDS as we know it today was re-launched under new management in 2002. They made the most of the company’s rich resources and 40 odd years of experience in the field to turn TDS into what it is today.

Currently, our staff complement consists of around 50 employees who work together on a daily basis to provide our clients with the best products supplied with the best service possible. TDS Project Group has its own transport fleet and our transport department offers a turnkey service handling all collections and deliveries.
