Who we are
TimRite was established in 1995 when former HL&H Executives started a new mining services venture. TimRite grew further in 2005 when Mondi Imbani Mining Supplies (MIMS) and TimRite were merged. The MIMS business was initially purchased as part of a larger transaction between Mondi and HL&H in 1996 and thereafter acquired by TimRite. In 2013 Thebe Mining Resources (Pty) Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Thebe Investment Corporation, acquired a majority share in TimRite, management owns the remainder.

Business Focus

Whilst the origins of Timrite are firmly based in the timber industry, it has been repositioned as a provider of underground support solutions which include non-timber products and logistical services

Timrite, the largest supplier of timber based support product into the South African deep level mining industry has a dual focus in going forward:

  1. The development of safe, cost effective composite underground support solutions
    Timrite has the most advanced research, development and surface testing facility, based at their operations in Westonaria. Together with the rock engineering skills and expertise of Timrite the key mining challenges of enhanced safety and a deeper ore body are met. This is achieved through ongoing collaboration between Timrite and its customers that results in innovative product development and unique solutions for the industry.
  2. Optimising the value of its timber asset
    Timrite’s investment in eucalyptus plantations allows for diversification into servicing the industrial timber and special pole markets.
