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 30,000 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.
What we do
Insulation and beyond.
Without insulation, you wouldn’t be able to eat what you eat and drive what you drive – it’s one of the cornerstones of modern industry and makes the lives we live today possible.
