About us

Alu-King is a sister company to The Finishing Touch, based in Gonubie, East London, South Africa. Whereas the Finishing Touch concentrates on blinds, carports, patio covers etc the Alu-King division concentrates on aluminum based solutions for our clients.


With many years of experience, not only in production but also in design, the partner team of Dave Hobbs and Clive Peaston are able to craft a solution for you.

The aluminum products and solutions are a natural extension of the existing Finishing Touch’s products. In  a classical case of form vs function, Alu-King is able to bring the synergies together. Given the years of experience the team has, the whole debate of aesthetics vs function has been transformed into a working solution for this client centered business.

So 40 years of experience in transforming concepts into functional working designs are used to create innovative and aesthetically pleasing designs for the most discerning clients. And of course the delivery is always done to Alu-Kings exacting standards.


Of course this is not possible without a highly skilled and motivated staff. Many of the staff have been on board for at least seven years. Each team works to exacting operating procedures and standards.  Standard checks ensuring that you get only the best workmanship in all projects.

One of the best attributes of having a systemised business is that Alu-King are best placed to extract the most efficient economies of scale from procurement and logistics, and therefore are extremely competitive on price.
