Our story began in 1986 in Johannesburg, South Africa, when Pat Dickens founded the company with a singular vision in mind: to make life easier.
Pat can be credited with introducing the country to the incredible security and convenience afforded by gate motors and so became a pioneer in his own right, always staying true to his original goal of creating products that not only move gates, but move people to experience true peace of mind.
