Awnmaster was founded in 1979 by John Singleton, who was the Chairman up until 16th April 2016, the day he unfortunately passed away, and he is greatly missed. In 1984, his son Anthony joined the company and is the current chairman.
Awnmaster initially manufactured a range of basic awnings of different materials which included aluminium, but in 1988, the decision was taken to introduce more sophisticated awnings to the range. Plant and machinery were upgraded for this purpose and with this progress, we soon became one of the market leaders in awning manufacture in South Africa. We currently employ eighty staff and our force of six sales consultants, who all have many years’ experience with our awning, carport and patio products, are able to offer our customers superior advice and recommendations on what would suit their situation the best. This, together with the belief that “the customer always comes first”, has equipped us to offer the very best in before and after sales service. All our installations are custom-designed to meet the needs of the client and to function practically in their environment, whether it is for a domestic, industrial, architectural or commercial application. Awnmaster’s structures are designed within structural engineers’ parameters and they have the approval, in principle, from all local councils in the Greater Durban area.
Awnmaster products are price-competitive because we firmly believe in giving the customer value-for-money without compromising on quality. Without losing sight of all the domestic customers who have supported us since 1979, some of the more familiar commercial names in our client base include the following organisations: Steffanutti Stocks, Grid Construction, WBHO, First Resorts, Beekman Group, Transnet, JT Ross, RODS Construction to name a few. A well-established rapport with suppliers has also enabled us to offer the customer sound warranties and guarantees on all Awnmaster products.
All Awnmaster product components have passed critical standards of approval, and only the highest quality aluminuim is used. The classic lines and planes of the Awnmaster awnings, carport, patios and ceiling structures are age-enduring. Awnmaster awnings are compatible with almost any structure or building and form the ideal roof addition to both the domestic and commercial application. Wherever the location, Awnmaster provides a lasting solution – whether it’s free-standing or building-adjoining – in aluminuim, colorbond or polycarb. Each Awnmaster product is installed to exact specification by our team of experts and no job is complete without customer’s approval.
We strive to be the market leaders in our field and will aim to be for decades to come.
