Our story

The Sedna Story

Sedna was founded in 2005. At that stage the business consisted of four hardworking young people, a tiny office and a borrowed bakkie.

Sedna was started as a company which specialised in technology in the mining industry. Our niche in the market was the convergence of the instrumentation and IT words and the opportunity for integration of systems and gathering of data generated by field instruments.

Today Sedna operates in much the same niche, providing technology solutions to our mining customers, working with companies such as Anglo American, Rio Tinto, Sibanye-Stillwater and Barrick around the world.

Our mission today echoes our founding vision “To be our mining customers partner of choice in the automation and digitalisation of their operations”.


We currently operate from our premises in Longmeadow in Johannesburg as well as Elko, NV. We have a team of over 60 skilled employees who pride themselves in what they do, their passion resonates in the quality of their work.

Over the years, due to the quality of our work and the trust we have built with our stakeholders, we have partnered with numerous multinational corporations and industry leaders in deriving optimum solutions for our clients. Our scope of work spans far wider than the geographical boundaries of South Africa, just having opened a New Sedna branch in the USA.

The growth of Sedna can be attributed to the hard work and attitude of our team, built on the pillars of our Sedna Values.
