About Us

TRM Supplies was founded in 1994 by Guenter Schmitz, in response to the high demand in the market for second-hand European-sourced tool room machinery (Maho, Deckel), accessories, tooling, consumables and services.

A steady growth in subsequent years has placed TRM as one of the primary suppliers in Africa for high quality installations with an excellent service record.

Expansion into the sheet metal sector resulted in TRM co-operating with Trumpf Certified Partners for completely refurbished Trumpf sheet metal machinery, and agreements with other well-known machine manufacturers such as Matek and Asia Machinery Group and Tayor.

TRM also imports a wide variety of new laser and plasma cutters, press brakes, punching machines, guillotines and other metal-forming, grinding and cutting tools under it's own brand.

We take care of all aspects of the business to get you up and running (i.e. producing) as quickly as possible. Our highly skilled team will advise and help with the optimal time-to-market strategy for your products by selecting the correct production equipment. We will source your machine at the best possible price, arrange finance, attend to the logistics of importing, and install and commission your machine.

We back all this up with expert service, a quick response-time and hands-on training on the equipment sold.
