Founded in 1957 in Italy, Megadyne has become one of the world’s best players in this field, with 17 production plants and 50 commercial offices in EMEA, APAC and AMERICAS.
Over the last 60 years, a constant and continuous evolution has allowed Megadyne to offer their clients a unique and reliable service, thanks to a huge experience and modern approach, Megadyne can follow small and large companies with the same efficiency and operational time.

In July 2018, Megadyne acquired CHALLENGE GROUP and SPROCKETS & CHAINS to consolidate its market share in Africa.
Headquartered in the UK, CHALLENGE is active in production and distribution of a wide range of power transmission products and components: transmission chains, sprockets, pulleys, electric motors, shaft couplings, shaft fixing, bearings, gearboxes… only to name a few.
CHALLENGE has locations in UK, Ireland, Australia, South Africa and China: present in more than 70 countries across the globe and in every continent.
CHALLENGE is perfectly equipped to deal with the demands of a global audience thanks to its dedicated network of strategically-located subsidiary companies and distributors: above all SPROCKETS & CHAINS in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The partnership between Megadyne, CHALLENGE and SPROCKETS & CHAINS represents a considerable competitive advantage for the Group to increase its market share where Megadyne and CHALLENGE are involved, especially in Africa.
From the end of 2018, Megadyne became part of AMMEGA, a new global leader in belting.
AMMEGA is the combination of Ammeraal Beltech and Megadyne; the two strong brands, and their respective business lines of Conveying and Power Transmission systems, are under a common new identity, creating an even more competitive group.
