MST specialise in forensic science solutions. We were appointed by Foster+Freeman and West Technology Forensics as their distributor for Southern-Africa.

MST forensic solutions

The Forensics division of MST came to being during 2021 with the establishment of a working relationship with Foster+Freeman in the United Kingdom.

Since then, MST have established itself as a provider of high-technology forensic equipment to specific entities within the SA Government, Botswana Government and Namibian Government.

During 2023 we also established a working relationship with West Technology Forensics and BVDA International, and we are looking at expanding the division even further.

We strive to provide professional services to the forensics science environment within Southern-Africa by distributing high-end products as well as providing hands-on practical training in the use of the equipment.
