Mr Quinton Uren – Group Managing Director Jendamark Automation

Industry 4.0 the African Way

Early in his career, Quinton realised he wanted to be his own boss. By 1985, he had acquired two CAD workstations and started his side business, Nasquin Designs, offering design and detailing services to local engineering companies. He designed by night, while his wife, Nasieba, detailed by day. In 1989, the structures of economic sanctions resulted in his retrenchment from SKF and a need to accelerate his plans. Nasquin had done some fixture designs for a company called Jendamark Electronic Component Industries. Quinton and his now ex business partner realised that they could combine their synergies in software, electrical, electronic and mechanical design – and in 1992 Jendamark Automation was born.
