a genuine passion for business
Our goal is to see our client’s business flourish. Systeco strives for excellence in every aspect of our company and we take immense pride in our work. Systeco has humble beginnings.
Established by Armin van der Walt in 2015, Systeco has grown into a group of young owners dedicated to becoming a trusted name in the global fruit and nut processing industry.
Armin is the CEO of the company, Andrew is the head of Automation, Louw is the head of Manufacturing, John is the head of the KZN branch, Frikkie is the head of the Western Cape branch. Together they have created a group of companies that complement each other’s strengths.
Systeco originally started working exclusively in the Macadamia industry, but as our skill set grew, we moved to other industries like plywood manufacturing plants, fruit drying factories, cool storage automation and irrigation control.
Systeco was founded in 2015 from CEO Armin van der Walt’s Nelspruit home. Armin resigned as a programmer and started his independent career programming macadamia panels and outsourcing the electrical panel assembly.
After some experience and due diligence, Armin moved onto building the panels himself and then only outsourced the installation. Soon the business grew to offer panel programming, manufacturing and installation.
The company progressed and Systeco began consulting and designing factories for macadamia clients. An in house draughtsman was employed but outsourced contractors from reputable vendors were still needed as the company only focussed on the automation sector of the business.
Clients then enlisted the company’s experienced professionals to manage projects. The mechanical work was also outsourced until a gap in the market presented an opportunity for Systeco’s first factory to be built. The early factory produced dehuskers and conveyor belts and outsourced heating and cooling. As time progressed, the business grew competent enough to in-source these tasks better, cheaper and faster.
Systeco has constructed factories both locally and internationally. We also helped pioneer one of the world’s first fully automated litchi sulphuring systems.
Systeco strives to achieve a balance between cutting edge innovations and cost effectiveness.
