2011, May – HmT Mechatronics (CC) was established
HmT Mechatronics is an engineering house and was the first startup in the group. It was started by the current Managing Director, Mr. Handry Massyn Theron, from his then rented apartment in Cape Town, Western Cape. At that time, he was 27 years old with only 4 years of relevant industry experience.
2012, Jun – HmT Trust was established
One year later and the engineering company is doing well. Property was acquired and the HmT Trust was established to hold this and any future properties.
2012, Sep – HmT Mechatronics Western Cape offices
With more large projects on the horizon for HmT Mechatronics, it was forced to gain a more professional look and feel. So it was no longer enough to work from home and the first official offices were opened in Brackenfell, Northern Suburb of Cape Town. This allowed the company to start building its own enclosures and now offering full turn key control systems.
2013, Dec – HmT Investments (Pty) Ltd was established
With good growth in the group, a need arose for a central administration and accounting department. HmT Investments was established to perform this function and many others. Today HmT Investments not only performs accounting tasks, but also private investments local and abroad.
2015, Jan – HmT Mechatronics Gauteng expansion
With more inquiries into our services from the northern parts of the country, HmT Mechatronics expanded into the largest city of South Africa, Johannesburg – Midrand. Today it still operates as a sales and support office.
2016, Jul – HmT Investment (Pty) Ltd Offices in Brackenfell
After 3 years of steady client growth, HmT Investments moves from a home-based entity to the same premises as its sisters company HmT Mechatronics.
2016, Oct – HmT Group was established
To facilitate matters, the HmT Group was established as a holding company. This was mainly done to build better structures and accommodate all current as well as future affiliates.
2019, Feb – HmT Electrical was established
With great opportunities sparking in the renewable energy sector, HmT Group has decided to further expand the existing knowledge of HmT Mechatronics. This is currently being done through HmT Electrical, which now also offers services in the electrical industry.
