Company Background

Gearhouse South Africa began as a small, Johannesburg-based lighting company with an equipment inventory of R300 000 in 1991 and has grown into a countrywide Total Technical Solution group, under the strong leadership of Founder and Joint Managing Director, Ofer Lapid.

In 1996, Lighting Unlimited, as the company was then known, was acquired by Gearhouse PLC, a UK-based company with operations on five continents. However, by 2001, Gearhouse South Africa had announced the successful management buy-out of the South African division of Gearhouse, which has since continued as a privately-owned entity.

The locally based, proudly South African company quickly achieved dominant market share and finalised its BEE agreement with Red Coral Investments in 2006. Our Board of Directors includes: Nasser Abbas, Nkosinathi Biko, Relebogile Biko and Neelofar Khan.

We have a national footprint through regional branches in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban and an expansive fleet of trucks and vehicles, enabling Gearhouse to reach any point in South and Southern Africa. In addition, the company regularly provides services across the continent and abroad. Throughout all our companies, branches and divisions, we recognise our staff as our most important asset. Pride in their professional skills places them up there with the best in the world. A very high priority is placed on ongoing training and skills development to keep our skilled personnel abreast of all the latest technological advancements.

Vision, passion, teamwork and a commitment to service excellence are the foundations on which Gearhouse South Africa has been built and we have a hard earned reputation for technical service excellence and creative distinction. For these reason the company is generally the service provider of choice for international events taking place in South Africa.
