Using their specific skills and experience; Wynand focuses on manufacturing, sourcing, development, and sales, and Hélana providing the support for the administration and marketing functions.

The Team

There are few entities that inspires confidence such as a family business. Each person on the team has a personal stake in the business. Nobody in the business is involved for short term gain, but rather a future for the whole family that is sustainable for the long term. It is for that reason that Karl Ueckermann and Justine Janse van Vuuren, the son and daughter of Wynand and Helana are involved in the business.

Karl is a qualified electrician with a wealth of practical knowledge and is a huge asset in projects and manufacturing, whereas Justine brings a specific flair to the office, marketing, and sales.

The team further includes Joe Victor, who is responsible for exports within the Southern African region. Additionally, the team includes an admin clerk and five factory/warehouse staff, most of whom have been with the company from start up, all contributing greatly to the day-to-day running of the business.

The Story

In 2015 Afriq Water Management identified the need to have more cost-effective and easier to manage quick coupling irrigation products available as opposed to expensive and difficultly movable systems that was available, typically manufactured from steel. They sourced the HDPE Quick Coupling Sprinkler System from Turkey, which addressed the requirements off affordability and ease of movement both.

Early 2018 Afriq Water Management identified the need for more water wise irrigation, for which dripline is the perfect solution. Afriq Water started to import dripline and dripline fittings, which addressed a specific need in a region where water scarcity is a huge issue.

The continued volatility in the Rand/Dollar exchange rate led the company to investigate the possibility of local manufacturing. After extensive research, the Company decided to import a dripline and HDPE manufacturing machine. From September 2020 the Company will manufacture their own pipes in Gauteng through their sister company Afriq Irripipe. This will allow Afriq Irripipe to source quality virgin raw materials from as far as Jordania as well as from local suppliers to manufacture world class products with technologically advanced state of the art machinery.

The results of moving into manufacturing have numerous benefits, with the most important benefit being availability of stock. Where there have previously been long lead times with imports, the company will now have standard stock items, and will be able to manufacture on demand with a short lead time.
