Carbon Fibre Design

Carbon Fibre and Fibreglass Composite design & Manufacturing


About Us

We are a highly skilled team with years of engineering and design experience.


Johann Venter, a chemical engineer (B-Eng & M-Eng) & entrepreneur who also specialise in finite element analysis, composite materials and structural design, developed the Saltus Pole together with the industry over the last few years. The product has now been patented internationally and the Saltus name trademarked.

Johann is experienced in composite design, composite product development, product commercialization and business development.

The Saltus™ product is being used for various applications due to its low cost being able to compete with the price of timber. The Saltus™ product range is also changing the paradigms on composites. Previously composites were only seen as high value niche products. These products are now showing that composites can compete with commodities given a very specific design approach.



Johann is also working with various partners in the industry to develop more new exciting composite products to make life easier. These developments are done within Carbon Fibre Design Pty Ltd and then incubated and commercialised.
