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


HJ Bosch and Sons Panelbeaters is a name synonymous with excellence in the panel-beating industry, boasting a rich history that spans several decades. Established in 1969 by the visionary duo of Drik Bosch and his son, Hennie Bosch, the company began as a humble family business. With a passion for delivering top-notch craftsmanship and unparalleled customer service, they set out to serve their local community.


Over the years, HJ Bosch and Sons Panelbeaters grew steadily, earning a reputation for its unwavering commitment to quality and reliability. The dedication to their craft and the trust they instilled in their customers helped the business flourish, and it soon became one of the most respected panelbeating enterprises in South Africa.


In 2016, the reins of the company were passed down to the capable hands of the third generation of the Bosch family. The decision to transition into a franchise business model was made to ensure the continuation of the company's time-honoured traditions of excellence and customer satisfaction.


It was during this transformative period that Mr Clinton Poonsamy joined the Autobody Repair Network and became an integral part of the HJ Bosch and Sons family. His passion for the industry and dedication to delivering top-tier service quickly made him an essential figure within the company. In 2020, seizing an opportunity for growth, Mr Poonsamy expanded his business portfolio by acquiring the Hercules branch, solidifying his presence in the panelbeating industry.


In 2021, the dynamic Mrs Jake Mulasi joined forces with Mr Poonsamy to take on the challenges of the panel-beating industry. Together, they opened the Rosslyn branch, infusing fresh energy and ideas into the already established legacy of HJ Bosch and Sons Panelbeaters.


Continuing its journey of growth and expansion, 2023 saw yet another milestone for the company. Mr Poonsamy's vision and determination led to the acquisition of another branch, resulting in the opening of HJ Bosch & Sons Panelbeaters The East (Pty) Ltd on the 1st of September 2023.


Throughout the years, HJ Bosch and Sons Panelbeaters have remained true to its core values, always striving for excellence in every project undertaken. With a rich history behind us and a bright future ahead, we continue to serve the community with the same passion, dedication, and expertise that have defined us since our inception.


Join us on this remarkable journey, as we pave the way for a new era in the panel-beating industry, continuing the legacy of HJ Bosch and Sons Panelbeaters—one of South Africa's most reputable and trusted names in panelbeating.
