As a qualified Mechanical Engineer, Alphons started his career working at the CSIR (Council for Scientific and Industrial Research) in Pretoria.
A promotion to Senior Design Engineer steered him towards research and design and gave him the right grounding for establishing Technimark Advanced Prototyping Services in 1996, where he and Dietmar Renner developed and launched the patented FSD System.
This unique design solution to the display and marketing industry saw Full Stretch Display (FSD) being established as a company with an international footprint in 2009.
An extensive portfolio of successful products is a further testament to his practical and innovative design approach, which, combined with his visionary leadership and management style, forms the core of FSD’s success.
Alphons is a workaholic, but at home is also husband to Attorney Thora du Toit and father to their son, Shian-Pierre.
