Build Inn was first established in 1980 in East London (Eastern Cape) by Cyril van Seumeren as a supplier of various building products and in May 1984, after seeing the success of Build Inn East London, his close friend Gerry Gericke decided to leave the piling industry and start up Build Inn Pretoria, focusing on supplying and installing quality garage doors to the housing and building market.
Gerry grew the company to be one of the largest suppliers of garage doors in the Pretoria area. In 1990, Build Inn expanded into the industrial door market, and began supplying and installing industrial roller shutters for factories, warehouses and shop-front applications.
Through this expansion, with their Roller Shutter supplier, Rol-a-Dor being purchased by Xpanda Security, Build Inn became associated with Xpanda, leading to becoming a fully fledged supplier of their roller shutters, security doors, gates and burglar guards and is now one of Xpanda Security’s largest distributors in South Africa. Thirteen years later, in February 1997, two of Gerry’s sons, Stephen and Ashley purchased the company from him and today, the company (now the longest running garage door company in Pretoria) is still being managed by Stephen and his team.
