Alu-Cab is our trade name for Aluminium Canopies. We started our business by building customised canopies for 4×4 bakkies, from there we diversified into just about every field of custom work that exists in the motor industry. We generally specialise in spec-kitting vehicles for 4×4 excursions into the depths of darkest Africa, but we are also actively involved in building customised vehicles for commercial industries.
Today Alu-Cab is a full-service custom shop building almost anything and everything that motorists may require. More and more people are seeing the advantages of professionally prepped vehicles, including specially designed and equipped mobile workshops.
True to our namesake, at Alu-Cab we lean towards building most of our products from Aluminium. This is primarily due to the fact that it is a wonderful metal to work with. It is strong, but very light. It also has a great lifespan and in most cases our products outlast the very vehicle we are building it for. Those in the know understand that Aluminium made products are not that easy to produce, requiring highly skilled artisans.
The name Alu-Cab is synoymous with quality and great workmanship. We pride ourselves on training our staff with the right level of skills to ensure we bring the best possible product to market. We offer a five year warranty on our workmanship and, unless we can see the product has been abused, we are happy to repair or replace with no questions asked. This is just another value-add that has helped us to build a positive reputation in the marketplace.
Alu-Cab currently owns two shops. The main factory is in Ottery, Cape Town. It is here where we build most of our innovative products. Johannesburg is home to our second, but smaller shop. This branch also has a fully kitted and operational workshop and was specifically opened to avail a better service to our northern client base. So although we tend to build in the Cape, there is not much we can’t also do in Gauteng.
In addition to our Alu-Cab outlets, we also retail our more basic products from dealerships all over the country – including Namibia. Alu-Cab now boasts an extensive range of products that we keep in stock – and if we don’t have what you want we’re sure to build it. Simply put us to the test.
