Address: Lynedoch, Baden Powell Drive, Stellenbosch

During 2005, Stellenbosch based entrepreneur, Deon van der Merwe founded Topshell originally as a Container and Chemical toilet Hire company that rented container-based site offices, stores, and chemical toilets, with the construction industry as its anchor customer. Originally Topshell only converted containers for their own rental fleet but due to demand, Topshell sold the toilet business and built a Special Projects Workshop during 2014 where they convert containers and custom built Pods for special applications for the open market. The Pods and containers range from 3 to 12 m in length and 2,4 to 3,4 m in width. During 2015 Topshell expanded its footprint by establishing a new business unit in Gauteng also with a workshop facility.

Topshell is currently made up of the following business segments:

Topshell Container site Rental with air conditioned site Offices, Conference Pods, Stores, Accommodation units, etc. delivered to customer sites on time with crane trucks.

Topshell Self-storage; affordable and with 24/7 access. Currently only in Stellenbosch with expansion of this service planned in next year.

Topshell Special Projects Workshop for custom built movable Pods such as laboratories, basic health care service centres, clinics, crèches, water treatment facilities, accommodation Pods, coffee shops, etc. The business focus is to provide movable, innovative custom-built working and living spaces allowing people to live their business and private life dreams!
