DM Service Centre is a family business. The company, originally known as DM Truck & Body Repairs, was started in 1998 by Billy Louw. He started his career in this industry in 1966. Billy built an impeccable reputation and was well respected for his knowledge and expertise. After years of running other businesses very successfully, he decided to take his knowledge and experience and put it into a business of his own, which he could leave to his son, Gavin. After receiving his trade certificate in 1993, Gavin continued to work in the industry and in 1994 he started his own workshop in Kleinmond. In 1999 Gavin joined the family business. After three years of working with his father, Gavin took over the reign in 2002 with his father still there to guide and teach him. Billy passed away in 2004 and Gavin had to continue on his own.
Gavin has extensive knowledge of many makes of heavy and light duty vehicles. His ability to diagnose problems is due to his years of experience and training he received on diesel and petrol driven vehicles and using the most up to date diagnostic tools in his workshop. Gavin is actively involved in the running of the workshop, sharing his experience and knowledge with his staff. When customers bring their vehicle to our workshop we strive to deliver an excellent, efficient and cost effective service with the objective to build a loyal customer base.
