No job too big or small

05 September 2019 | Business

Kruger Cupboards and Woodworks, located in the Prosperita Industrial Area, focuses mainly on cupboards for residential and business premises as well as on other furniture, albeit on a smaller scale.
Owner Hannes Kruger boasts 31 years’ experience in working as a cabinet maker and joiner. After qualifying as cabinet maker, he worked at Meyer and Ferreira in Bellville, Cape Town, for 20 years.
Hannes and his Namibian wife Susan, moved to Namibia in July 2010.
Because he didn’t have a job at that stage, they decided that they would open a business. Hannes started off by working from the double garage of the house they rented back then.
Within a year, Hannes was receiving more and more commissions, and to complete the work he had to rent a property to work from, as the garage became too small. Initially, Hannes began working with one employee, teaching him the trade. However, over time and with more work orders, Hannes had to move to a bigger property again, along with employing more workers.
Today, Hannes and his team of five mainly carry out work for individuals and businesses, with some of his bigger contracts that include houses and apartments at Elisenheim and Finkenstein estates, as well as doctors’ rooms at Lady Pohamba Private Hospital.
His latest large-scale project for a business was the cupboards at Westair’s new offices at Eros airport in the capital.
Hannes’s vision for the next few years is to further expand his business.
Kruger Cupboards and Woodworks CC is situated in Nickel Street, Prosperita. For added convenience, Hannes is available to visit his client’s premises.
