They were founded in 1967 as Telford Plumbing and Drain Layers. This changed in the mid 1970’s when founder Paddy Telford acquired a Precast Concrete Pipe and Manhole Manufacturing Business. The Calcamite name originates from the two vital ingredients in precast manholes namely Calcareous materials and Dolomite stone. The Calcamite Concrete pipe sections were manufactured utilising a state of the art spinning process.

During this time a need was identified for a light weight inspection chamber and manhole system. Ever the pioneer Calcamite developed and patented the World’s first one Piece Poly Manhole which had the benching, riser and lid former all made in one single unit. This development lead to the acquisition of a Rotational Moulding machine which utilised a spinning process to make the plastic manholes. With the new machinery came new Ideas and with its roots in the Plumbing Industry, From this followed a range of On Site Sanitation Products which has led to Calcamite Making the unique claim that it is ‘… the only Company in the World that it knows of which can offer a full range of On Site Sanitation Solutions ranging from a Pit Latrine to a waste water Package Treatment Plant…”.

Hero Tanks is situated in Chamdor just outside Krugerdorp and they manufacture a wide range of rotationally moulded products for all sectors of industry.

One of the major products supplied is storage tanks ranging from 250 litre to 10 000 litre in which most are available in both vertical and horizontal configurations. These are manufactured from virgin high grade, UV stabilized polyethylene and are suitable for the storage and transport of water and chemicals. Tanks are moulded in a variety of colours and all water tanks have a black lining to ensure zero light penetration to prevent algae growth.

A dry sanitation system that is affordable, sustainable, has longer life expectancy and is more cost effective over its lifetime compared to other systems - this is the Enviro Loo.

The Enviro Loo is a waterless, on-site, dry sanitation toilet system that functions without water or chemicals. It is designed for the benefit of all communities and can be installed almost anywhere. It is an effective-solution to the numerous sanitation challenges facing the world.

Designed and manufactured in South Africa, the Enviro Loo first went into production in 1993. Invented by Dr Brian La Trobe, as a convenient, economical and safe (environmental and health) solution to the mounting worldwide pollution and water challenges.
