Established in 1971, Joos has been manufacturing and installing kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms since 1971.
Our family’s history is carved in wood. Our father Joseph was born and raised in Belgium, where he became a joiner and apprenticed as a truck body builder (in those days, trucks were made of wood).
In 1967, at the tender age of 21, he responded to a job advert for a workman’s position in South Africa. Leaving behind family and friends, he flew from Brussels to Johannesburg and boarded a train to Cape Town.
After marrying a Dutch immigrant by the name of Greetje in 1968 and working for several companies, Joseph decided to set out on his own, and founded Joos Joiners in 1971; the same year Jos was born.
The business started out manufacturing window and doorframes in a small garage in Parow, and gradually built up to bedroom cabinets and kitchen cupboards.
Leo was born four years after Jos in 1975. As the business grew, it moved to bigger premises. In 1982, a new factory was built in Stikland, Bellville, where we are still located today.
We both joined our fathers’ business in 1992. Our business has grown from strength to strength and today we have a thriving company that offers the best in contemporary furniture.
We’re proud of the company and the legacy our father has left us: honest, fine quality wood furniture that will make your home beautiful. We hope you enjoy learning about what we love.
