Who we are

There for you all over the world

In 1918 Carl Kaefer used peat to insulate the walls of cold storage spaces. His idea worked so well that it led to the foundation of our company, which has since developed into a market leader for plant integrity services and solutions in Industry, Marine & Offshore and Construction. With over 28,000 employees and a large international presence, we are a true global player – there for you all over the world.

KAEFER was established in South Africa in 1976 and trades under the name of KAEFER Thermal after KAEFER Insulation (Pty) Ltd purchased 100% of Thermal Insulation Supplies and Contractors (Pty) Ltd from Murray and Roberts in 1998.
