Gentag has a humble and modest history starting in 1957 when mr P.M.L. Coetzee a former vice principal at Hartbeesfontein School and known by the name Meester Coetzee, was approached by farmers to develop a ground nut de-huller.

The project started in his garage. The first unit was sold in 1958.

In 1960 Mr. P.M.L. Coetzee registered his company and also developed and built the first maize combine in South Africa that was in huge demand. In 1968 Mr. Coetzee developed and built the renowned 6776 Hammer Mill. The first units came of the production line in 1969.

The owner of Gentag Mr Phillip M Coetzee son of the late mr. P.M.L. Coetzee and his twin brother were instrumental in the development of the well known Tub Grinder M40 and the 6776 Pick Up Hammer Mill. In 1984 Mr. P.M. Coetzee converted the 6116 bottom drop Hammer Mill to accommodate a fan and cyclone.
In 2005 Mr P.M. Coetzee developed the BH60 Hammer Mill / Shredder Combination that was well excepted in the market.

Mr. P.M. Coetzee has since 1980 designed, developed and manufactured 21 high quality agricultural and forestry processing equipment including a Microwave drying Tunnel.

The new husk and germ separator produce pure samp maize and the new Multi G12 Hammer Mill is the latest addition to Gentag Hammer Mill range.
