Tru-Butt is welding specialists in South Africa. The company was started in 1972 by Jan Lourens, a highly qualified armature winder. The company’s initial core business was the manufacturing of welding machines and other equipment, and due to shifts in the economy, the rewind and repair of all welding machines were incorporated. Initially situated in Roodekop, the business moved to Delville Business Park in 1998. Jan’s son Marius joined the business in 2000, and as an institution that embraces the ethos of a family run business, Tru-Butt is a company with high expectations for the future.
