Former local corner shop in downtown Pretoria named Glass Rite shattered expectations when it grew to become one of the major players in its industry within South Africa. Better still, like the best kind of business growth out there it has been slow and steady progress over the past two decades. The result is that the small-scale supplier of glass to the public for their homes and motors has expanded to become responsible for the glass facades of entire companies owned by multi-national conglomerates.
As well as aluminium and glass structures for six giant shopping malls – Queenstown, Newcastle, Orange, Jozini, Mall of the South and Shoshanguve – Glass Rite have also added their expertise and materials to Newcastle Civic Centre and the Honda Midrand HQ.
Current projects include the HQ for the company behind South Africa’s Kyalami racing circuit, the state of the art Virgin Active gym in Sandton and the stunning Menlyn Park shopping center in Gauteng, Pretoria
On the 22nd of July 2016 Glass Rite’s CEO Lodewikus Roets officially received his Honorary Doctorate in Business Management via the Confederation of International Accreditation Commission. He was jointly nominated by both the Pebble Hills University (USA) and the CIHF (India).
