More than 45 years of fond memories of the founding of then Aluglass (Pty) Limited, which later became Aluglass Bautech (Pty) Ltd, was first registered in December 1973 and started trading in 1974. Owned by three (3) Shareholders, and later remained with two namely: Mr. W.P. Eichhorn and C. Hüppe who bought out one of the original shareholders in 1978 until 1981 after selling Hüppe Germany followed by South African linked businesses.
Mr. W.P Eichhorn became the only remaining shareholder, who was joined by his family and a subsidiary of Gypsum Industries Ltd (a Public company) and Donn (Pty) Limited. It was until 1988, when Mr. W.P. Eichhorn and Family bought Donn’s share, that it became privately owned together with other group companies through E.Z Investments. Today Mr. W.P. Eichhorn, Mr. Niels Eichhorn and Mr. Brian Rajchrt are shareholders and continue to be hands on in the daily running of the Company, with special emphasis on the ‘young generation’ taking on more and more responsibilities.
