The History of Uretech

Uretech (Polyurethane Technology) was founded on 30 June 2004 in Johannesburg.  Uretech was originally started as a subsidiary of Dot Steel (Pty) Ltd, a metallurgical services company.  The directors of Dot Steel at the time, George Hoffmann and Brent Loftus, realised that Dot Steel’s dependence on the steel manufacturing industry in South Africa was potentially unsustainable. 


Mike Kuys, a Dot Steel site manager in Newcastle, proposed the concept of polyurethane wear resistant liners to the company.  The idea of manufacturing process consumable products for the booming mining industry was very appealing and a polyurethane casting expert, Jan Deacon, was appointed during May 2004.  The original Uretech factory consisted of an insulated 40-foot container, a paraffin burner and two or three hand tools.  The casting facility was adjacent to the Dot Steel insulation factory, which was strategically positioned near Iscor (ArcelorMittal), with whom the company had long standing supply agreements for insulation related products.  Read more...
