Our Story

Pragma was founded in the 90's in South Africa and has since grown into a global leading asset management service provider, offering permanent employment to more than 400 employees on 4 continents.

Pragma's products and services are aligned with ISO 55000 and the GFMAMs 39 Subjects providing the platform for ISO 55001 certification readiness. Their products and services are tailor made for physical asset management and include the On Key Enterprise Asset Management system, various business processes, consulting and an outsourced service called the Asset Care Service. Before engaging with a client, a thorough evaluation of the current status of a client is determined by means of an Asset Management Improvement Planning (AMIP) assessment. The results of the assessment are used to draw up and asset management policy, strategy and master plan (with measures) as base line for a road map towards sustainable and results driven asset management. The Pragma Academy offers a three year certificate course for strategic and tactical managers as well as operations teams, thus enabling clients to manage their own asset management programmes. The Academy in Brasil offers a MBA in asset management.

Pragma consistently invests in its internal leadership and people development to make Pragma one of the best engineering companies to work for. They have been awarded the Deloitte Best Company To Work For award for 4 consecutive years in South Africa.

As a thought leader, Pragma translated the PAS 55 handbooks into Portuguese, took a leading role in the development of ISO 55000/1/2 and supports the local asset management associations (SAAMA and Abramam) in educating the market in asset management. Pragma is the Diamond sponsor of the SAAMA asset management conference and awards programme in South Africa.

Pragma's global growth strategy is to enlarge our footprint across industries in South America, Africa, Europe, the Middle East and Australia through strategic partnerships with companies already entrenched in these markets.
