TASA Gauteng

The Toolmaking Association of South Africa (TASA) was established in 2004 as a non-profit organisation to represent the collective interests of the Tool, Die and Mouldmaking (TDM) and Precision Machining industries in support of the various manufacturing sectors that serve as key drivers for economic development in South Africa. TASA is a national body and has representation in all provinces through fully capacitated section 21 companies in each region.

Accounting for approximately 60% of national tooling production capacity, Gauteng boasts the largest industrial concentration in South Africa. As one of TASA’s regional structures, in association with the Gauteng Department of Economic Development (GDED), TASA Gauteng plays a significant role in promoting strategic initiatives in Gauteng for the purpose of creating a more sustainable and globally competitive TDM industry. By exposing toolmakers to valuable support systems that aim to boost enterprise development and skills development, TASA Gauteng actively assists in the upliftment and expansion of tool making companies which are crucial for manufacturing as an underpinning industry.
