MTO helps Arcelor Mittal tool up new industrialist incubator ''Matlafatso Academy''.

Arcelor Mittal have embarked on an initiative to assist with the transformation of the South African economy by establishing the Arcelor Mittal of South Africa Matlafatso Academy, where start-up industrialists are able to incubate their businesses with the help of office space, facilities and most importantly, quality steel and machinery for engineering and fabrication projects. The ‘Hub’ as it is known internally at Arcelor Mittal, is an exciting space where small industrial businesses can get a head start.

We are committed to helping to transform the South African economy as a whole, but more specifically to help build sustainable industrial capacity to secure the future of South Africa’s industrial sector. When starting the centre, we knew we needed good value, high quality machinery and a reliable, flexible partner to help us. We have chosen Machine Tools Online to help us source our machinery and look forward to working with them in the future.
— Willie van der Merwe, Specialist at Arcelor Mittal South Africa's Matlafatso Academy.
When we started to work with Willie, we were enthusiastic about the prospect of being involved in such a project. The Matlafatso Academy is everything that excites us about the industry - transformation, innovation and excellence - as well as great machines doing great work. Thank you Arcelor Mittal for the opportunity!
