Company Profile

" 'n Mens is 'n mens deur ander mense "

  • In 1953 Anton Jansen started as an office boy with one of the largest building merchants in Southern Africa and very soon gained knowledge of building materials, sales, purchasing, accounting and managing. To widen his horizon he joined a construction company and learned quantity surveying, site management and tendering.
     
  • Cartoon: We do it this way because we've always done it this way, son!
  • In 1969 he was ready to start on his own and decided to specialize in refurbishment and restoration of historic structures. Notwithstanding job reservation he turned many a labourer into a fine craftsman and dry-packed stonewalls or cow dung covered floors are undertaken as meticulously as reed ceilings or replacing a weather vane high upon a spire.
     
  • The restoration of sandstone buildings was a logical step and became a separate venture, presently run by his son. Stonemasons are a scarce commodity therefore hi-tech machinery from Italy assists the sculptors in coping with mass production for modern buildings.
     
  • Bert Griffioen joined the A J Group, first as a student (1997) and later, after a short spell on his own, became co-director of A J Renovatum (Pty) Ltd. He is a Building Management graduate and with his academic background makes A J Renovatum thé company to offer the client the perfect product.
