Japtha was founded by its sole director Mr Marlon Jordaan in 2012. Japtha is a company that specialises in the supply and repair of industrial gearboxes and electrical motors and is based in the Johannesburg region. Japtha supplies and services small and large companies nationally that are in the market for industrial power transmission products.

The company specializes in the supply, distribution, repair and maintenance of electric motors and industrial gear boxes which include the following:

  • Electric motors
  • Inline helical geared reducers
  • Bevel helical gear reducers
  • Right angle gear reducers
  • Worm gear reducers
  • Shaft mount gear reducers
  • Mechanical variator
  • Variable speed drives
  • Poly V-belts
  • Seals and bearings

Initially the company supplied Barloworld Handling with safety wear and also doing embroidery on the PPE. Currently the company is supplying automotive products such as fan belts, v-belts, bearings and globes to Barloworld. The company does not have any solid standing contract with any client and hence work done is mostly ad hoc from various clients with the main ones being Barloworld Handling and HVH Mining. Although they specialise in the above, the company is not limited to the services and product required by the mining, food and agriculture industry.
