WHO WE ARE
Charlson Import Agencies was formed in 1997 as an importer and distributor of pumps and accessories from a variety of Italian manufacturers. Two of the founding shareholders, Mike Di Bona and Julian van der Westhuizen, are still active as Directors. Charlson Import Agencies grew its brand by being the sole importer of Vertix Pumps in South Africa.
Thomas Botes joined Charlson in 2013 as a Director after working at Provincial Pumps and ITT/Xylem for 8 years. Along with Thomas came a Grundfos Distributorship and the engineering side of Charlson officially started.
Jason Di Bona joined Charlson in 2014 after qualifying as a mechanical engineer from Stellenbosch University. In 2016 he was instrumental in obtaining ASIB listing as a fire pump and panel supplier and the fire pump side of Charlson began.
Charlson Import Agencies started trading as Charlson Pumps in 2014 and as they say, the rest is history…
