Company Profile

Johan Gillen is the owner of the business and has been involved in the motor car fitment and repair business since 1995.

With his wife Magda  he  owned  two motor car fitment franchise businesses in the Randburg and Strijdompark area, where he gained extensive knowledge of the tow bar manufacturing and installation business.

The 'Texas' brand, in relation to tow bars, was established by us in 2002 and appears on all products installed by the Firm. 

Our Products

We manufacture tow bars for all makes and models (motor cars and trucks).  In such cases where our customer has a specific requirement, we custom make the tow bar according to those requirements.

Our products are not sold to resellers.   We deal directly with the car owner and normally require a two or three day lead time.  Installation is at the premises specified by our customer.  The installation process seldom exceeds 2 hours.

All our tow bars are guaranteed for the life of the vehicle:  Provided that the maximum towing mass and vertical ball mass are adhered to at all times.  The guarantee will also lapse if any work is done on the tow bar by the customer or a third party subsequent to installation, that has not been sanctioned by the owner of this Company.

Our quotation will include standard wiring to a seven pin female socket.  In such cases where the installation of a Universal Trailer Interface (Bypass Relay) is required, the cost of the device will be added to the invoice and be payable by the customer.
