About Us

A Unique Product Developed in Africa

Concrete Pumps (Pty) Ltd started in 1968 with the manufacture and marketing of a revolutionary air-operated concrete pump – the SEM Concrete Placer Pump. Simple and inexpensive to operate and with a price approximately 1/10 of the commonly used concrete pumps!

It soon became the market leader in concrete pumps in the local civil, building and mining industries.

Machinery for Making Concrete Blocks

In later years, SEM began offering a full range of machinery for the production of concrete bricks, blocks and pavers – from inexpensive hand moulds to very large automated concrete plants.

This wide range has inspired many people in Africa to start their own businesses, making concrete blocks for development.

PMSA – A Giant in the Concrete Industry

Today, Concrete Pumps and the SEM brand have become part of the PMSA group of companies and is now known as PMSA Kwa-Zulu Natal.

PMSA® is Africa’s leading and largest manufacturer of concrete brick, block and paver making machinery.
