Our engineers and technicians have industry experience, so they know your pain points and can better help you address them.

Our industry experience includes:


Innovation is critical to the aerospace industry in order to comply with demanding cutting edge design criteria. Implementation of advanced novel engineering materials and concepts is necessary to meeting this criteria. One Eighty can provide key technological understanding, testing and evaluation of all these advanced engineering materials through the whole supply chain to enable the effective use of these technologies.


Manufacturing involves processes of all engineering materials. The manufacturer needs to keep up throughput and product quality to meet the demands of their own client. One Eighty is a key technology and integrity partner to assist manufacturers meet these demands.


One Eighty are technology and integrity partners to the Automotive Industry

Oil and Gas

The Oil and Gas industry is a high risk industry both for human safety and the environment. A failure on an oil rig or in a subsea structure can result in loss of life and also harm the environment. It is also a high stakes environment, failure on an oil rig or structure can cost an oil company considerably in production losses. One Eighty provides fast turnaround engineering problem solving for this industry sector in terms of failure investigation, development of fabrication and manufacturing methods. One Eighty can also provide key technology to this very demanding industry sector to mitigate production losses, catastrophic failure and environmental damage.

Power Generation

Providing electricity to a fast growing economy requires an in depth understanding of the materials used in the power generation industry. Most materials don’t only work under extremely high temperatures, but also see extremely high pressures with cyclic loading. Most major power generation projects in South Africa experience major delays in part because of a poor understanding of the high performance materials used in this industry. One Eighty has a rich history within this industry and intricate knowledge of how materials used in this industry should be handled.


The Defence industry has numerous requirements, including zero tolerance for failure, systems integration, demanding applications and requirements and the meeting of government and environmental requirements. These require integrity partners.


Metal fabrication refers to the building of metal structures by cutting, bending, and assembling processes. It is the evolutionary process of creating a metal product, from layout and design to formation and finishing This value-added process involves the creation of machines, parts, and structures from various raw materials.

Food and Beverage

One Eighty has a unique and bespoke Food and Beverage Materials Testing offering

One Eighty provides solutions to the Food and Beverage industry to assist in meeting industry requirements, meeting the challenges and solving problems.


One Eighty is also uniquely Bureau Veritas Marine and Offshore approved

On time delivery of cargo is central to the global maritime industry. Inability to deliver on time results in losses to charters and vessel owners. The on time delivery of cargo means that mechanical machine items and the structure of the vessel has to be efficient, reliable and serviceable. The failure of any item on board a vessel presents considerable risk. One Eighty’s services are key to risk assessment and mitigation in this sector.
