Rotatech Company Background

Rotatech was established to give the Kinetrol brand of actuators and dampers a dedicated marketing platform without diluting the brand with other non-related products. Rotatech was awarded the sole agency for the southern Africa region for Kinetrol in 2007.

Together with the sister companies Bulkmatic Solids Machinery and pojects based sister company Techmatic Engineering,  Rotatech is able to give the customer a turnkey service which includes supply of actuators, mounting of actuators to client equipment and where necessary also the installation thereof on site.


Kinetrol was established as a firm of control engineers in 1958. Initially the company's activities were based on its damping expertise which lead to the development of Kinetrol's rotary viscous dashpots for smooth motion control.

Kinetrol later invented and patented its vane-type rotary pneumatic actuator, recognising the emerging need for quarter-turn valve and mechanism actuation. Since then, the company has added many actuator control modules to meet the growing demand for more precise and sophisticated process control and monitoring.

Kinetrol operates from three sites in Farnham, England, and exports at least 70% of sales to countries all over the world. Kinetrol has full inspection and test facilities and operates a rigorous quality control programme which includes 100% testing of actuators and dashpots before despatch. The company's quality system is approved by the British Standards Institute to ISO 9000. Quality is built into Kinetrol's products by active choice in every part of the company.
