A brief history


Most people would recognise CEMSA as being a relatively young and vibrant company, having established its roots within its sister company MaPa Cleaning Technologies.

Our true history however, goes back nearly 30 years!

First established in 1989, CEMSA began locally manufacturing high pressure cleaners out of a small workshop based in Pietermaritzburg, Kwa-Zulu Natal. Some of the ideas and concepts used, are still buried in the DNA of the more modern machines today.

Since the reintroduction of the brand, we have been amazed by the calls we have had from clients still using some of the machines. One in particular called in looking for a replacement valve for a unit he had had for 26 years!

Our logo still remains with us, and in truth was the inspiration for the MaPa elephant which has become a recognisable figure in that company’s branding.

Today CEMSA are at the forefront, leading the industry with innovation, creative thinking and technology. We are an ever evolving company, proud to be South African, and proud to be the best we can be!
