Since 1943

Bosworth was established in 1943 and became the first Company in South Africa to produce fabricated pulleys. Bosworth was instrumental in developing conveyor pulleys to the currently popular designs used worldwide. We are continuously striving to improve on current designs as well as developing new designs and standards.

Over the years, Bosworth has manufactured conveyor pulleys to be exported throughout Africa and the rest of the world.
