About us

Fritz Eshen had a choice. Move to Australia or move to South Africa. A flip of the coin and he arrived on our shores in 1909 from Hamburg, Germany and started our company.

A few short years later in 1939, Carl, only son of Fritz, joined his father where he stayed for the next 54 years. Carl took on a partner, Maxwell Johnson who helped run the company until 1993.

Andrew Eshen, Carl’s youngest son, joined the company in 1980 after completing his national service. He purchased Maxwell’s shares in 1993 and became a director. Father and son remained in the business until Carl passed away in 1994.

Andrew Eshen is now sole director, carrying on the tradition of entrepreneurial energy and passion that still drives our company today.

We are proud of our heritage. We are also proud of how we continually adapt and re-invent ourselves to bring you new ideas, solutions and creativity that make the difference in our ever-changing environment. That’s our difference, to you.
