Background



Our Company started on 1 August 1980, when Koos & Lorraine Bouwer decided to combine their passion of working within the Motor Industry, with that of providing a general Engineering service to both the commercial and private sectors of South Africa. Starting up in a small workshop of only 30 m² in Booysens Reserve, Koos and Lorraine soon reaped the fruit of their commitment and service excellence, when they were able to move into a much bigger workshop in 1987.

By 1992 the KL family has grown tremendously as our amount of staff doubled and son Riaan Bouwer also joined the team. Starting in the workshop, Riaan Bouwer worked his way up to being part of the Top Management of this booming family business. Together father and son today proudly manage this respectable and reputable company with a workshop of over 2000 m², specializing in the remanufacturing of Truck and Bus Gearboxes and Diffs.
