How it all Started

CC Imelmann was founded in 1970 and based in Booysens, the Crown Mines region of Johannesburg South,  close to “Gold Reef City”  

We specialised in mechanical and physical testing equipment e.g. Hardness,  Tensile, Crush Testers and Paper Testing. Servicing mainly Mines, Metal, Concrete and the Paper Industries.  

In 1988 we moved from the Mechanical testing and diversified to include the Research and Development, Quality Control, Agriculture, Phamaceutical, Petro-chemical and Educational sectors, to name but a few.

We have become one of the leading suppliers of Laboratory Consumables, Chemicals and Equipment in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Our spectrum of high quality Laboratory instrumentation, Consumables and Laboratory accessories covers (almost) all aspects of your laboratory needs and requirements.
