About Us

Engineering Success!

Precision & Accuracy Since 1997: TGC Engineering was established in 1997 with a vision to offer clients smaller runs, prototypes and one-offs for machining at affordable prices.

Having survived two major economic recessions that saw many engineering firms closing down permanently, TGC Engineering recognized its reputation for excellence… We are transparent and honest in our dealings with clients, allowing us to form long-lasting relationships that have been beneficial for both parties.

“Precision & Accuracy Since 1997”

The strong relationships that have been built over time have enabled the growth of products and businesses in South Africa, strengthening our position in the industry in which we thrive, and those of our valued clients. TGC Engineering has grown into a High Precision Engineering workshop and now competes professionally with corporations.




Clients must place all orders online, this includes quotations. Once an order is placed, the client receives a welcome email. We then receive specifications via an online order form. We obtain the best price for materials and tooling, before a quotation is prepared. Once payment is made we proceed to step 02.




The job is then scheduled and loaded to available machines and production lines. Working samples are tolerance-tested and proofed prior to large production runs. Jobs are tracked easily and feedback provided, allowing for any vital corrections to be administered into further production runs.




In this final step, finished components are counted accurately and packaged correctly for deliveries. We deliver within 24-48 hours locally, making use of courier services to ensure components reach their destination on time and undamaged. Global logistics arrangements are made for international clients.
