A leader in industrial boilers

Alstom John Thompson is an international leader in the design and manufacture of industrial boilers with steam outputs ranging from 1t/hour up to 320t/hour.
We are an ISO 9001 company producing an extensive range of coal, oil, gas and wood fired, firetube and watertube boilers. Our product range is tailor-made to meet the requirements of various industries, small and large, including food and beverage producers. Special designs are engineered on request to meet our customers' specific needs.
Alstom John Thompson's works near Cape Town was opened in 1954 and since then, the 23,500 square metre factory has grown into one of the largest heavy engineering facilities in South Africa. To date, we have manufactured over 3,000 boilers at these premises.
In the light of recent fuel price increases, an added benefit to the firetube product range is the use of spiral-tube technology as an effective way to reduce operating costs, ensuring high-efficiency firetube boilers. Fuel consumption savings of up to 2.5% are achieved as a result. Our new range of firetube boilers is fitted with spiral tubes as standard.
After-sales support is available to boiler users, including installation supervision, commissioning, boiler maintenance and repairs, operator and supervisor training, spares and metallurgical inspection.
