Devon began his career in 2003 where he worked in the well-known family business, Kei Boiler Services. During his time there, Devon focussed on developing the combustion services by gaining the necessary skills and knowledge through training with Autoflame in the UK, which lead to him launching East Cape Combustion in 2012.
From renting a small space in the Baakens Valley with 5 employees and 2 bakkies, the company has grown to a skilled staff compliment of about 40 employees with a fleet of vehicles that service their clients from their Walmer premises. The new premises includes offices, workshops and a cutting edge training facility with a fully operational boiler room.
Their vision is to optimize Africa’s combustion and steam solutions by offering turnkey solutions in heating systems including the design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of burners, boilers, piping reticulation and insulation as well as training.
East Cape Combustion is proud to be the preferred installer for Spirax Sarco as well as the sole agent for Tuff boilers in Sub Saharan Africa. They are also the agents in the Eastern Cape for Riello, Autoflame, Limpsfield, Ivor, Cannon Bono Energia and FBR.
