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.

With established manufacturing and stock holding logistics in place, the company is perfectly positioned to provide quick turnaround and cost effective solutions to its client base.

The group has vast experience in all areas of mixing and pumping technology, particularly in the mining, chemical, pharmaceutical, waste & water treatment, and pulp and paper industries.

Globally, the AFX group has serviced and supplied many of the world’s largest plants with mechanical agitators and peristaltic pumps. The group remains at the forefront of providing innovative solutions and is fast becoming the go to supplier of choice.

AMX Agitators

The AMX range of top entry mixers manufactured by AFX ranges from units as small as 0.25kW to 750kW, for applications in the mining, chemical, pharmaceutical, waste and water management and paper industries.  The company’s local manufacturing facility was chosen because of its availability of high quality machining facilities, a competent labour force and shipping access to export markets.

AFX Pumps and hoses

The AFX Series hosts a range of robust peristaltic pumps, including one of the largest pumps of its type in the world. Our 150mm pump has a maximum flow rate of 147m3/hr, and can deliver pressures up to 10 Bar. These units are ideal for thickener underflow applications.
