HJ Bosch and Sons Panelbeaters: A Legacy of Quality, Service, and Innovation

HJ Bosch and Sons Panelbeaters stands as a beacon of excellence in the panel-beating industry, with a rich legacy that spans over several decades. Founded in 1969 by the visionary duo Drik Bosch and his son, Hennie Bosch, the company started as a modest family enterprise. Their unwavering commitment to superior craftsmanship and unparalleled customer service set them on a path to serve and elevate their community.

Throughout the years, HJ Bosch and Sons Panelbeaters have experienced consistent growth, forging a reputation for quality and reliability. The founders' dedication to their craft and the trust they cultivated with their customers propelled the business into becoming one of South Africa's most esteemed panelbeating firms.

In 2016, the leadership baton was passed to the third Bosch family generation, marking a new chapter that included the adoption of a franchise business model. This strategic shift aimed to preserve the company's esteemed excellence and customer satisfaction traditions.


2019 was a landmark year for HJ Bosch and Sons Panelbeaters as we celebrated our 50th anniversary in the Auto Body Repair Industry. Our commitment to leveraging the latest technology and ensuring that our craftsmanship meets the highest industry standards has solidified our standing among customers, insurance companies, and motor manufacturers.
