HOW IT ALL BEGAN



1995

Luke Thomas graduated, with a BSc. Mechanical Engineering Honours degree from the School of Mechanical Engineering at the University of the Witwatersrand. He was employed at Klamflex Pipe Couplings from 1996 until 1999, when he left as the then Technical Manager.


1999

Luke Thomas designed and founded the coupling manufacturer Aqualok. Over a period of 7 years the Aqualok product range grew rapidly and was successfully integrated into the Southern African pipe connection market.


2006

Luke Thomas sold Aqualok to The Rare Group (a JSE Listed Company) and embarked on developing a superior range of pipeline connection and repair products. Thomas Pipe Products was born into a modest and rather small, 279sqm mini unit in Honeydew Gauteng.


3rd September 2007

2009

A small branch was opened in Cape Town, the Johannesburg operation grew into 4 mini units.

2010

A 4000sqm modern manufacturing facility was designed and built specifically for the manufacture of pipe couplings and stainless steel repair clamps. The building was completed in May 2011.


2011

Thomas Pipe Products purchased Aqualok, uniting the two brand names under a single brand name, that being Thomas.














2012

Thomas Pipe Products set up an additional 1000sqm fittings fabrication facility in Honeydew and expanded the Cape Town facility into a 750sqm building.


2013

The Johannesburg facility increased to 5500sqm.


2017

A bespoke and fully automated corrosion protection plant was commissioned in the Johannesburg facility.


2018

A Cape Town Factory of 1500sqm was purchased to increase capacity.









We sincerely hope that we continue to grow and develop with the success we have enjoyed over the previous years...
