Van Heerden de Wet, General Manager, First African Claddings

Trust-Builder Taking the Lead at First African Claddings

When newly appointed General Manager of First African Claddings (FAC), Van Heerden de Wet, started at the company 20 years ago, the parent company Helderberg Technology Holdings, was still called Aerodyne Technology.  When he accepted a job offer, he was expecting to design aeroplanes and rockets, and using high tech composite material.  Instead he ended up managing the production of the Caltex pylons and never looked back from there.
