Tubestone is a distribution company that has its roots in humble beginnings. Weve worked hard and built an incredible successful Tyre and Tube Distribution company.
Tubestone is the brainchild of founder and present MD, Pieter Kruger, who recognised the opportunity to establish a distribution company that would become known for representing some of the best tyres and tyre related products the world has to offer.
The doors opened for trading on April 2, 2001 with the company importing tubes and flaps. Before long the range was extended to include OTR, Industrial, Agricultural, Implement, Truck and Passenger tyres.
Only five months after the first outlet opened in Cape Town, another followed in Johannesburg. The Durban branch opened in 2002, with Bloemfontein following in October 2004. Three years later, in 2007, Port Elizabeth was added to the mix, with Windhoek and Harare and Botswana following closely behind. With this, Tubestone is providing a complete service offering Nationwide as well as to South Africas most important neighbouring countries.
A unique characteristic that defines Tubestone is the Family feeling which Pieter has endeavoured to create within the company. Every staff member is deemed important and is proud to be associated with the company. This manifests in all interactions and communication within the company and its loyal customers. Tubestone customers are treated like respected friends and they can be certain that we will always go the extra mile for them.
The Tubestone team is painstakingly selected as a way of ensuring that the company is run by the best possible group of people, individuals who are not only educated in their respective fields, but are also loyal, dedicated and good hearted.
Moreover, the Tubestone ship is steered by a group of brilliant men. Navigating the team responsible for the success that is Tubestone (Pty) Ltd are Pieter Kruger, MD, and Directors Alex Friedman, Jeff Wessels and Paul Howard.
