Aerial platforms, truck-mounted cranes and drilling rigs

The aerial platform experts

Smith Capital is the only company in Africa that designs and manufactures aerial platforms. We are the leaders in platform manufacture. We also supply truck-mounted cranes and drilling rigs and export our equipment to countries across the African continent.

We are able to design, manufacture and deliver at a much lower cost than procuring similar imported products. All goods meet SABS and ISO standards.

Need something custom-built?

We have the engineering capacity for purpose-built design and manufacture. We can do specialised and unique designs exactly to your specifications. We cater for companies that have the right budget for these high-end items.

Full service with quick turnaround

We provide 24/7 service, and very competitive turnaround times in quoting and delivering. We will quote you on the same day for cranes and platforms and within a few days for drilling rigs. Our manufacturing plant can build a rig for you from as little as 8-10 weeks, depending on specifications.
