Our Company’s Background
LTM Technologies was formed in 1999 as a result of a management buy-out of Foseco Steel. The company’s main focus was to provide continual and increasing support and sales on Foseco Steel products into the local steel market.
LTM Technologies acquired Thermochem, a well-established supplier to the South African steel market, and the only South African manufacturer of continuous casting mould fluxes. The plant in Brakpan was moved to our premises in Vereeniging enabling us to optimise resources and production capability. LTM also acquired Pre-cast Refractory Castings (PRC) in 2004 with the aim of manufacturing the Foseco patented precast products in-house.
The company took a strategic decision in 2005 to get involved in a BBBEE transaction resulting in 26% equity acquisition by Mulondo Empowerment Legacy Investments, a black-owned investment company with interests in metallurgical and mining industries. The transaction resulted in a name change to LTM Mulondo Holdings, a diversified Holdings Company incorporating well-known brands like, LTM Technologies, Thermochem and Pre-cast Refractory Castings.
