After a lot of hard work and dedication, the family owned business expanded in 1995 by purchasing the well known Modern Electric Appliances in Somerset West. Currently Mr. Boet Lourens’s two sons, Andre and Jacques, together with his son in law, Christoff Schreuder, run Bergzicht Furnishers, sometimes spelt Bergsig Furnishers.
Modern Electric in Somerset West is run by his other two sons Josh and Deon. In 2002 Bergzicht Furnishers expanded from a 100m2 shop to an enormous 1000m2. This enabled Bergsig Furnishers to host the widest selection of appliances and furniture in Stellenbosch.
We are certainly the main supplier to the vibrant student market of Stellenbosch and supply institutions and businesses like University of Stellenbosch, Distell, Medi-Clinic and British American Tobacco. We are also a preferred supplier to various Architects and Kitchen Company’s. Bergzicht Furnishers started off as a second hand furniture dealer and now stock all major brands to fill the needs of their clients.
