BG Boat Parts was established in 1973 by Bernard G Bevan. He ran a successful manufacturing business on his farm in Johannesburg until 1977, when the decision was made to move the family owned and run business to Knysna in the Western Cape. Continuing in his father’s successful footsteps, Robbie Bevan took over the reins and has built the business to what it is today.
In 1980, Bob Taplin, joined the company as a Toolmaker and in 1998 was appointed as a director. His dedication and loyalty over the years towards the company and staff have been greatly appreciated and his continued service provides valued input and support.
The company consists of a fully equipped toolroom, where all the plastic injection moulds, jigs, dies and other tooling are manufactured, an injection moulding section with 13 moulding machines ranging from 20T to 200T and a fully equipped metal processing section with CNC lathe and various other machinery.
We manufacture a large range of fittings for keelboats, sailing dinghies, power boats, semi-ridged inflatables, canoes and kayaks.
We recently started manufacturing plastic and stainless steel fittings for tents, trailers, caravans and campers.
All our plastic fittings are manufactured from the highest quality Nylons, Acetyl resins, A.B.S. and various other plastic materials.
We only use 316 Stainless Steel and various non-ferrous metals for the metal fittings.
