Kopiso

Kopiso is a Vehicle Accessories Fitment company that not only pimps your car with the latest and best gear but also manufacture their own bakkie tonneau covers. Along with many other services, Kopiso is shaping up to be one of Midrand’s best.

Background

In 2014, Chipaza started selling and exporting covers to Zambia. Realising that the market was greater in South Africa, he began to manufacture his own covers in 2016.

Finding a name for any business is always tough, however Chipaza knew that he didn’t want a generic name but wanted a name that ensures that he will never forget the reason he does what he does. Kopiso is a portmanteau of his daughter and wife’s names; Kopano and Thabiso.

The Business

Over the years, as business picked up, Kopiso has been adding to their service list and now offer tonneau covers, customised seat upholstery, outdoor roller blinds, truck and boat covers, swimming pool covers, etc.

Clients are spoiled for choice when asking for help from Chipaza. The growth of his business cannot be acclaimed to just the large array of services on offer, but one must acknowledge the kind and friendly demeanour of this gentleman. No doubt clients leave happy every time.

Kopiso also install vehicle and residential air conditioning systems, an array of nudge bars, alarms and locking systems as well as vehicle sound systems.

According to Chipaza, the biggest highlight of his business so far was when he worked with a team from Toyota in Zambia and had to equip 20 vehicles each with a complete set of accessories.  His dream is to grow a brand that becomes a leader in vehicle accessories in Midrand and the Northern Suburbs. With his work ethic, that won’t take too long.

Motivation

FAMILY! That’s it. Wanting nothing but something better for them is enough to get this husband and father into the right state of mind to conquer each day with all his might.
