I love what I do!

To most work is something that is dreaded and not necessarily enjoyable, which I guess makes me one of the luckiest people alive!

I started living my passion as a boy when I started out as an apprentice working on air conditioning and refrigeration equipment, falling in love with what I do.  Since starting out as a humble apprentice, I have gone on to achieve many qualifications and accreditations to allow me and my team to work on some of the most complex and intricate commercial and industrial HVAC and Refrigeration systems.

No job delivered by Pluto will be signed-off unless it carries an approval at my passionate standard of excellence.

I cannot wait to meet you and help you with your cooling requirements!  Moreover, I really look forward to Pluto supporting your systems for many years to come!

Founder and Managing Director of the Vanpot Holdings group.

I am a South African-born investor and entrepreneur, where my career to date has exposed me to many industries and disciplines.  I am not frightened by concepts that are foreign to me, rather I recognise them as learning opportunities.

My sole philosophy has been to apply my own stamp / flavour in all business I get involved in; being a culture of no-compromise and efficiency across all disciplines of the business.

The Vanpot Holdings group (www.vanpot.mu) is a multi-disciplined group with a strong focus to create vertically integrated supply chains to service its own subsidiaries.  Pluto is a critical service provider to Vanpot Holdings, supporting its property and retail portfolio(s).
