Business Information



In 2007 Leon and Elana Le Grange left their managerial positions in the corporate world and took the plunge to start their own business in the timber industry.

Their concern for the area and their desire to create a lasting legacy have prompted them to initiate and partake in several alien clearing projects in the Overberg district, such as rehabilitating Fynbos in biodiversity areas.


A milestone was the opening of the first pole depot for distribution purposes in Bredasdorp in 2011, followed by one in Hermanus in 2013.

Leon and Elana’s company motto has never changed since the inception of Fynbos Pole Depot, and that is, “To deliver professional service and quality products on time!"
