About us

Established 1980

Technistrut (PTY) Ltd. was established in 1980, making us one of the most long-standing
teams of roof truss manufacturers in Johannesburg.

With over 40 years of experience in roof truss design and manufacturing,
we know the importance of proper planning, careful design, accurate manufacturing, and punctual delivery.

 

About TechniStrut:
Roof Truss Manufacturers in Johannesburg

 

We are involved at every level of the roofing industry, allowing us to complete projects for the smallest alterations to roofs; to the largest residential roof structures, townhouse developments, and commercial building projects.

Since our establishment in 1980, we have focussed heavily on innovation in the prefabricated timber roof truss market. Subsequently, we have evolved into not just one of the leading roof truss manufacturers in  Johannesburg, but South Africa as well.

We have even been awarded the accolade of being 1 of 5 of the top roof truss manufacturers in the country, for more than 20 consecutive years.
