How We Started
In 1992 I started doing steel gates from home. I started doing it as a business and failed three times. While manufacturing gates I also started installing alarms and doing other security products.
After the third time failure I went back into doing my trade for eight and a half years in Namibia.
We moved back to South Africa where I started a this business in 2007 doing security products and added electric fencing to our skills.
We employed Alberto who is our trusted, honest, reliable and very skilled artisan and foreman today. We were asked by a Boutique Hotel manager to do some repairs and do some handyman work at the hotel which we did with great success.
We realised that we could expand our business to include the handyman contracting work.
My son was accepted into a high school in Stellenbosch and we moved back to Cape Town where I grew up.
We were asked by a rental agent of a major property company to do their contracting work from where we learned many more skills in the renovations, maintenance and handyman contracting business. What the agent was looking for was to have one contractor to take responsability for all aspects of the renovations, maintenance and handyman contracting and have have continued doing that through craftsmanship.
We do not have a staff turnover. My Maintenance Crew team members have been with us for a long time. They are honest. They are reliable. They are hardworking. They treat this business as their own. They treat our clients with respect and dignity.
