We manufacture mainly Block machine mould sets and handling equipment for concrete bricks, blocks and paver production.
What was started in the 1980’s as a brick making plant, has evolved into the manufacturing of engineered products for the cement brick industry. In the 27 years of manufacturing concrete products, At van der Merwe a qualified mechanical engineer, frustrated by the limitations of the equipment available at the time, decided to design and build various components for his brick making plant. It is from these development experiences in the brick industry that we manufacture the products which are practical and economical to use.

SmartStone was founded in 1980. The original SmartStone concept was to create concrete products that simulate the look and feel of natural stone, but SmartStone quickly evolved into much more. We pioneered the idea of exterior design systems, which was achieved by creating products with natural textures, others which remained true to concrete and some that could only be described as authentic SmartStone. Subsequently, SmartStone became a generic name and our manufactured product range expanded to include various shape and texture pavers, wall cladding, tiles and landscaping features. Our cost-effective paving products are manufactured to replicate the same natural beauty as real stone and are suitable for residential or commercial paving projects.
