Cape Lime / Afrimat

The history of Cape Lime dates back to 1946 when the first vertical shaft kiln was commissioned by Cape Lime Company Ltd on the farm Langevallei near Robertson.

Today Langvlei has three kilns in operation, calcining dolomite, which is mined and crushed on site. It also boasts with the only pressure hydrator in South Africa.

The Vredendal operation came into existence in 1981, when the dolomitic aggregate operation was expanded to include the Mineral Filler Plant.

Further expansion included the erection of the high grade dolomite blending plant for the glass industry in 1983 and the processing of high grade limestone in 1993.

A fluid bed calciner was commissioned in 2004 producing quality white lime.

As a private company, Cape Lime has a 30% BEE shareholding and obtained a Level 5 (63.4%) BBBEE rating.

Both operations are ISO 9001:2000 accredited and our CLC Building and Plaster Lime carries the SABS Type A2P mark.
