About us

Fab Water Engineering (FWE) was founded in February 1983. The main activity was the import of Caprari Pumps into South Africa. During the first years a large amount of knowledge was gained in the borehole, agriculture and mining water industry. Two years later the business expanded into domestic Irrigation. Fab water engineering supplied Caprari Pumps to the borehole and agriculture market for a further seven years. Due to the political circumstances in South Africa, FWE and Caprari were forced to break ties. FWE continued business with local pump manufacturers and increased its dominance in the domestic irrigation market. In 1992 FWE became heavily involved with the drilling of boreholes and contract installations. The company proved its ability as a contractor and completed many government and civil projects. By 1997 FWE was well groomed in water supply systems as well as borehole engineering. FWE ran successfully as a contracting and supply company for a further decade. In 2006 Caprari pumps and FWE re developed the sucessfull relationship from the previous years. The joint venture will see the success of Caprari pumps once again in South Africa and Sub Saharan Africa.
