We  pride ourselves on quality.

John Gray & Son was established in 1908 and is considered a pioneer in the South African brush and cleaning industry.

In 1975 the business was bought by Benjamin Gluckman and is now owned by the Gluckman family. The company has made great strides since the early days of hand-made brushes. John Gray has developed sophisticated brush-making machinery and techniques to cater for the most specialised customer needs.

Our primary objective is to consistently deliver high quality products at competitive prices. John Gray & Son has a skilled workforce, our employees, some of whom are third generation, contribute to our continued success.

Specialist product knowledge, a wide product range of competitively priced products and integrity has made John Gray & Son a trusted and professional manufacturer and distributor in the market.

Our success is rooted in our ability to provide both quality products and innovative solutions.  Reliable and trusted distribution partners have made it possible for John Gray & Son to grow its national footprint.

Our passion is in making, our expertise is in manufacturing. From projects small to large.”
