About Us

History since 1979

Our History

The history of Tube-O-flex dates back to 1979 when Ashraf Mohamed open its doors in Cape Town South Africa. From humble beginnings the company very soon established itself as one of the largest distributors of flexible hoses, not only in South Africa, but in the rest of Southern Africa region.

In 1989 the company opened a subsidiary in Namibia and this saw the birth of Tube-O-Flex Namibia as we know it today. In 2005 Tube-O-Flex (Namibia) open a new chapter in its history by selling a majority equity stake to a Black Economic Empowerment company, Onyewu Holdings.
