Alugro was founded when the Grobbelaar brothers identified a gap in the market following a frustrating construction experience.
Born out of pure frustration due to bad service and poor quality from aluminium and glass companies, AluGro was founded in 2004.
This came after Nat Grobbelaar battled to do some alterations to his house. He contacted ten companies to get prices on windows and doors for a new outbuilding at his house, with only three getting back to him and none supplying a quote. Eventually, he obtained a costing, but waited three months after paying the deposit for work to start. After numerous failed attempts to get the company to rectify mistakes and attend to the snag list, he gave up, contacted his brother Johan and together they established AluGro.
Since the company resulted from this unsatisfying experience, exceptional service and quality products remain a core focus of the business. Attesting to this, AluGro won a nationwide competition by Glass South Africa for the best residential project.
AluGro designs, manufactures and installs custom-made aluminium windows and doors, including bank security doors (mantraps). It is also one of only a few companies in South Africa that manufactures arched windows and doors.
Since AluGro’s profiles are extruded to ISO standards and its products conform to both SABS standards and the National Building Regulations, the company offers a 12-month guarantee on all its products.
AluGro’s customers and/or contractors include the SA National Intelligence Service, SA Statistics, DLR Construction, DMG Construction, Isowall, Grinaker, HSRC, Transnet, Group Five and the Gauteng Department of Public Transport, Roads and Works, Louis Pasteur Hospital, Office Objects, Regus, Discovery Health, Sasol, Unisa, the South African Revenue Service (SARS) and various embassies.
