Silverstar Engineering, (subsidery of the former EGMAK est. 1997) is a commercial investment company with operations and investments in Ethiopia, South Africa and Sweden, and business partnerships and contacts in various African countries and beyond.

- Industrial plant and machinery
- Mining Equipment
- IT, Military Technology and equipment, etc
