Our Story

With humble beginnings in a small South African workshop, Lorbrand was founded in 1985 with the goal to produce the world’s best conveyor idlers, pulleys and support modules.

Today, this dream—shared by Alfred Granig and his three sons—is a reality.

With an unwavering commitment to in-house design and manufacturing, Lorbrand has established itself as the global leader for conveyor solutions that can be fully customised to meet the needs of any project.

From pipe and plant conveyors to ship-loading terminals and overland conveyors, the company utilises the latest software and manufacturing technology to remain at the forefront of efficiency and quality while offering unrivalled after-sales support via an international network that spans 15 countries.

Our Products

Designed and manufactured in-house at our state-of-the-art facilities, each Lorbrand conveyor idler and conveyor pulley is built with revolutionary technology—from centrifugal self-cleaning seals to the use of Finite Element Analysis (FEA)—for truly customisable and cost-effective solutions.


Completely customisable, Lorbrand conveyor pulleys include conventional pulleys, slated pulleys, internal bearing pulleys and apron feeder shaft assemblies. We also supply shrink fit shafts for special applications.


Low-friction, energy-efficient and providing the smoothest ride possible; Lorbrand conveyor idlers are engineered to reduce the long-term costs associated with replacements by ensuring they reach their design life.

Combined with our idler frames—which are jig and full seal welded to reduce stresses, provide incredible belt tracking and prevent premature corrosion—you get the perfect solution no matter the size of a project.

Lorbrand frame types include carry in-line, carry offset, underslung carry, adjustable carry, self-aligning, V-return, flat return, retractable carry, and impact frames.
