Better by Design

Kormax offers a fresh innovative approach to design by collaborating with global material technology leaders. With over 70 years experience in engineered components we understand its the detail that makes the difference. Through our collaborative approach and global capabilities we bring the best for manufacturers and engineering.

Get Started


As a continuous improvement organisation listening never stops. Through after-sales support and listening to feedback we learn, we resolve and we support our customers. We add to our knowledge base and prove new ways to offer customers the best.



A production plan is prepared ensuring production capacity and quality control are maintained to standard. The Supply chain system is set up to ensure all delivery requirements are achieved. Manufacturing commences and delivery satisfaction is measured.



The create stage involves conceptual design then detailed design. At conceptual design our application engineers open their minds to a wide range of creative solutions. Through brainstorming and internal consultation we model and analyze a number of ingenuitive options. Options are presented and through rationalization we assist in selecting the best design strategy. Detailed design & modelling is then performed to ensure the product is production ready.



The best solutions come only when the problem is comprehensively understood. At Kormax we begin with a confidential 360° review to fully understand everything. This broad analysis dives deep into the application objectives, physical factors, chemical exposure, manufacturing process, serviceability, operating maintenance, risk assessment, legal requirements, certification, competitive threats and budgetary targets.
