About

Cape Craft Services was established in June 2002 as a family-owned and run business. We are officially 8 years old this year! This is still true today, with Howard van der Westhuizen at the helm, assisted by his daughter Gaynor as the office administrator, and son Jean-Pierre assisting with the day to day running of the business. Other staff include  Avonia, our production administrator and Bonga, our trusty factotum.

From humble beginnings Cape Craft Services has become a force to be reconed with in the laser cutting and engraving arena, having clients like Top Billing, the flagship lifestyle magazine television program of SABC (the South African national broadcaster) and internationally acclaimed fashion designers and interior decorators. Take a look under the “Media” tab to see where our work has been showcased.

As from the 1st October 2011 Christa van der Westhuizen & Riaan Nel purchased Cape Craft Services from Howard who will be taking a permanent Medical break.

Christa & Riaan will be trading as Cape Craft Laser Cutting and has retained the same staff.
The same high standards and quality products can be expected from Christa & Riaan and their staff as you our valued customers have become accustomed to. Christa brings a host of experience to Cape Craft Laser Cutting. Having recently sold 1st Signs her sign company and Fine Wood Craft her manufacturing business. Fine Wood Craft was established in 1992.

Christa’s focus will be Cape Craft Laser Cutting (CCLC) and expanding her laser cutting capabilities by acquiring faster and larger laser cutting equipment is her first priority. Riaan comes from an engineering background and brings a wealth of knowledge and ideas for future expansion.
