What was started in 1990 by Frans Janssen as a small PVC strip curtain installation company called Janssen Products, has now grown into a well-established industrial door and loading dock equipment company, providing businesses with entrance solutions for inside their buildings to separate different areas, to doors and docks for their loading bays.
The acquisition of sole distributorships and product expansions led to steady growth, and the company that started in Johannesburg now has branches in Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth which all trade under the name Maxiflex.
Bram Janssen who has taken over the running of Maxiflex from his father is inspired to keep the same family ethos in the business of honesty, quality service and reliability.
Originally from The Netherlands, we have a proven background in quality service delivery which is now combined with the South African sense of flexibility.
We will always make a plan to get the job done to the highest standard.
