Hi-Tech Mag Repairs Keeping The Wheels Turning
Bike SA|October 2021
Way back in 1987, Grandpa Louis Botha and his wife (Ouma) Gertie, added wheel repairs to their panel beating business, and before long, it became their mainstay of operations.

They moved into their current premises in Alrode South in 1999 where they still operate from successfully today. Oupa and Ouma are no longer with us today, but their legacy lives on and the business has been handed down in the family over the years, keeping their quality standards and integrity intact. A lot of the equipment used were designed and built in-house and fine-tuned over the years.

With the majority of modern cars and bikes now running around on mag wheels, and considering the state of our roads, Hi-Tech Mag Repairs is kept busy with repairs all the time, especially when you look at the cost of repair versus the cost of new mags. But repairs are not their only line of business, they also do minor refurbishments and custom wheel work. Custom work includes narrowing ad widening rims and custom spray-painting is also on offer. No job too small, too big or too creative for them.

She Broke the Bank

Luvleen Sidhu was just 28 when she founded BankMobile with a lofty mission: to reinvent banking for millions of Americans through the power of tech. The 2015 launch presciently anticipated the coming rise in mobile banking, and six years later the Radnor, Pennsylvania based business merged with a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) in a transaction worth $150 million. That made Sidhu the youngest female founder and CEO ever to take a company public, and led her to even grander goals: Still at the helm of the company—now called BM Technologies—she says she wants to “create ripple effects and inspire other women.” Here’s why you should put your money on her to do just that.
