|AC HONED TUBE was founded in 1978 by Andre Calitz and was first known as Hydrofit Engineering. At that time we specialised in the design and manufacture of specialised hydraulic equipment. We found there was a shortage of honed cylinder tubing and chrome shafting, so we investigated the possibility of manufacturing these products locally.We built a honing machine and later purchased a large honed tube manufacturing plant from British Steel. We also set up an agreement for the distribution of their material. We are now sourcing material from all over the world to get the best quality and prices possible. A hard chrome plant company was purchased for the manufacturing of chrome shafting and hard chroming. Due to the change in product, our name was changed to AC HONED TUBE and AC HARD CHROME.We are now one of the largest manufacturers and suppliers of honed and unhoned tubing and chrome shafting in Africa. We also do deep hole drilling and skive & burnishing. We also have a finished products plant to manufacture and supply peeled and polished bar, induction hardened bar, ground bar and chromed bar. We now have endless manufacturing and jobbing possibilities. We are still expanding to ensure that we can always meet your requirements in our field.
