Company description
DM Service Centre is a family business. The company, originally known as DM Truck & Body Repairs was started in 1998 by William Edward Louw, better known in the industry as Billy Louw. He started his career in this industry in 1966. Billy built an impeccable reputation and was well respected by his peers for his knowledge and expertise. After years of running other peoples businesses very successfully he decided to take all his knowledge and experience and put it into a business of his own which he could leave to his son, Gavin. As a teenager Gavin spent lots of his spare time helping out at his fathers places of work gaining invaluable experience and knowledge. After receiving his trade certificate in 1993, Gavin continued to work in the industry and in 1994 he started his own workshop in Kleinmond before moving it to Cape Town. In 1999 when his father felt it was time he joined the family business. They made a formidable team. After three years of working for his father Gavin took over the reigns in 2002 with his father there to still guide and teach him. Unfortunately Billy passed away in April of 2004 and Gavin has had to move forward on his own. Fortunately Gavin was more than up to the task and therefore the business is still successful and continuing to deliver expert and professional service. Gavin has extensive knowledge of many various makes of heavy and light duty vehicles. His ability to diagnose problems is due to his years of experience and understanding of the workings of diesel and petrol driven vehicles. This ability is a time and money saving tool both of which are a scarcity today. Gavin is actively involved in the running of the workshop sharing his experience and knowledge with the staff, therefore benefitting the customers. When a customer brings their vehicle to our workshop we strive to deliver an excellent, efficient and cost effective service with the objective that the customer will return.
