Kiloton originally started out as Diesel-Electric Vereeniging, which was founded by Wolfgang von Ey (Snr) in 1971. In the years that followed, two divisions were created: the Automotive and the Industrial division. In 2000, the group obtained the distribution rights for Enerpac Hydraulic products and Kiloton was established as a tooling specialist to the industrial sector.
