Welcome to Made In Workshop

SHARED
WORKSHOP

Made In Workshop (MIW) is a shared workshop and fabrication studio. Not just a workshop with a collection of tools and machines but a community of like-minded fabricators, manufacturers, and designers. We provide access to tools, machines (CNC) and space for you to design, build and fabricate your product, project or idea.

What we do

When in human history have individuals been able to conceive, design and manufacture an idea in weeks instead of months and years. MIW is the tool, the location and the solution to the above question. We bring prototyping and low volume manufacturing to your doorstep. Small scale manufacturers can now upgrade their manufacturing capabilities without having to incur heavy fixed financial costs. MIW is a service that works in perfect unison with your own business cycle. Whether you produce 1 or 1000 units your the cost of manufacture will be in tune with your own sales stream.

What we provide

Why we are different

Nothing is conventional! We’re the first of our kind in South Africa.

Generating New Ideas. Solving Big Problems.

At MIW we are very proud of our members and the projects and ideas that come through our doors. With over 500 projects to date and growing daily. Some have said that the number of satisfied members are directly proportional to the cups of coffee consumed (even the cold ones) here at MIW.

From Our Members

Made In Workshop has allowed me to expand my manufacturing capabilities.  The addition of the CNC router has allowed me to take on bigger projects and more importantly increase my  rate of production on existing products. The environment at MIW is now an important part of my business.

Theo De Koker

Owner, New Projects

Manufacturing a new product in a new environment is daunting.   Working with insane deadlines just makes it worse. But not at MIW.  Their manufacturing environment allowed us to complete our first project on time.   They allowed us to work to our own, sometimes very late schedule. Their advice and support were invaluable.   We are continuing forward with new projects at MIW.

David Flanders

Managing Director, Square One Projects

I have moved my whole operation into MIW.   They have everything I need to complete my metal working projects. I have a new partner in my business. Not just another service provider.

Lucky Damaniti

Owner, Technokraft

Starting a design and manufacturing business is really tough, especially considering the high cost and big space required for specialised machinery. That all changed after we discovered MIW. With their well-equipped workshop, we could expand our capabilities and scale up our production to meet the requirements of our rapidly growing client base.
