Our History

We are a family business that started off in Groblersdal, Limpopo, in the early 80’s. We have a long history in hardware and in 1990’s included manufacturing paint to our portfolio.

In 2000, we moved to the small coastal town, Gansbaai, and bought over another business which manufactured and installed fibreglass garage doors.
Given our background, we quickly expanded the company to include other products.

Our sons, Riaan and Martin, also joined in and soon we were manufacturing aluminium doors and windows. This, along with the garage doors, opened a doorway into the building community.

Having a hardware store again has always been very big dream for us, and in 2016, that dream came into fruision. We opened our hardware store doors to the public on 30 September 2016, gradually including more building supplies to our growing list of products and services.

In December 2019 Marnus, our eldest son, also joined the business, bringing with him a wealth of knowledge he had gained over the years working in other hardware institutions.

The combined knowledge of our family allows for the trading of a wide variety of hardware and building materials, on a small scale, along with excellent customer services.
