Business Information



Fred de Pauw is a longstanding resident of Gansbaai who prides himself on producing service and products with the perfection that comes with years of experience in the engineering trade. Fred, who is a former police diver, qualified commercial diver and highly accredited recreational Scuba diver, has extensive knowledge in underwater construction.
He first established his workshop to deal with the maintenance and manufacturing of his own equipment that he used in his commercial diving and dredging company. He soon saw a gap in the market and began offering his services to the public, investing in quality equipment for his new venture.
Fred describes himself as “customer-satisfaction driven”. Standards are high and all work done in the workshop is either perfect – or it doesn’t leave the workshop. With a passion for the work he does, no engineering related problem is beyond Fred’s solving. “I don’t have a box,” he says, “I’m always working outside the box”. Despite the quality of workmanship on offer, customers will also be satisfied with the honest prices quoted, with no exaggerated mark-ups.
