Almex and Amalgamated

Almex was started by Hein and Theresa Johnson in East London in 2006. Initially Almex was established as an aluminium supplier but the business quickly evolved to include ceiling and drywall products due to the demand in the area.

Almex introduced Pelican Systems brands into the East London market for the first time in 2013.

The success was immediately evident and Amalgamated Drywall and Ceiling Supplier was opened in Port Elizabeth towards the end of 2013 in order to replicate the successful East London model.

Keeping the business in the family, the Port Elizabeth business is run by Hein’s son Juan Johnson.

Almex and Amalgamated have enjoyed the product range and variety that Pelican was able to offer which has allowed them to add value to contractors in the area and to compete on another level.

Hein comments that: – “We are all about service and quality and empowering our staff to grow the working relationship between us and our customers.”

Jolene describes these two companies as:-

Reliable, quality conscious, service orientated, innovative and efficient…

Both companies stock a wide range of Pelican Systems products for suspended and flush plastered ceilings and for drywalls. Over and above this they have aluminium extrusions for windows and doors as well as an extensive hardware range.

If you have a project in the Eastern Cape they would love the opportunity to price on the work and are guaranteed to impress you with their level of service and care.
