About Us

AFX Holdings is a privately owned company headquartered in Southern Africa. In 2013 AFX Holdings partnered with financial giant Investec – a move to enhance the company’s future growth strategy, performance and reputation through the international banking and asset management company’s extensive networks and financial know-how.

AFX is a leading manufacturer of mixers and peristaltic pumps. Although historically its primary market has been the mining industry, AFX’s growing markets include chemical, food & beverage, pulp & paper, water treatment and pharmaceutical industries.

Since partnering with Investec, AFX Holdings has grown its international operations with divisions opening in North America and Europe.

Our History

The AFX Group has more than 30 years’ experience in the engineering and manufacture of mixers, with a history that goes back to Aeromix in South Africa.

In 2006 Aeromix changed its name to AFROMIX, to reflect its growth in both the African and International markets.

AFX Holdings Acquired AFROMIX, the South African mixing and peristaltic pump arm of the company.

In 2013 Investec Bank Limited acquired 30% of AFX Holdings, heralding a strategic new direction for the company. Majority shareholder Eugene Els remained managing director of the newly structured company.

In 2014 Canadian based AFX Mixing and Pumping Technologies Inc. was established within the group to design and manufacture for the North American markets.

In 2015 UK based AFX Mixing and Pumping Technologies Ltd was established within the group to design and manufacture mixers and pumps for European markets.

Shafts and hubs

Shafts are manufactured to a stringent straightness tolerance of 1mm/metre of shaft length. Often 50% of this is achieved.




AFX produces all its manufacturing drawings in 3D to eliminate potential errors. Where large, or unusual, components are being designed, FEA is conducted. The analysis combines all the operating loads of the system, allowing the designer to see potential weaknesses before manufacture.
