Joburg Canopy Centre(PTY)ltd began from humble beginnings in April 2011 when the current entrepreneurs decided to launch a start-up, trading as Canopy Workx, by purchasing and reselling pre-owned canopies from home. Soon thereafter, owing to excellent market prospects, Canopy Workx was renamed to Billy and Nephew canopy centre and moved from a home operation to a commercial stand where it operated for the next 9 months.
After 9 months and due to significant growth a bigger operating premises was sought resulting in the relocation of the business to a 1000m² stand where it operated for a period of 6 years. In May 2016, following our appointment as an approved Beekman Fitment and repair centre, Billy and Nephew embared on a rebranding exercise renaming the company to Joburg Canopy Centre(PTY)ltd. As a result of acquiring the Beekman agency, JCC opened a second premises focusing on colour coding and rubber lining/ polyurethane bin linings.
Realizing further growth, in January 2017, a 3rd branch of 1000m² was opened to cater specifically for the new Beekman canopies. The increase in growth and demand also necessitated larger operating premises resulting in the relocation of the businesses to a premises of 1400m².
JCC was awarded soul distributorship for SAMMITR steel canopies, and in addition to holding the Beekman agency, JCC is also agent for Rhinoman, Securi-lid, Trelli-rack and The Bakkie Mattress.
The success of JCC is attributed to the entrepreneurial skills, compentencies and capabilities of the founding members.
The entrepreneurs have approximately 57 years of collective experience in the used vehicle and motor accessories industry, which has enabled us to create a high potential venture in a short space of time.
JCC is currently a level 2 BBBEE company.
