The passing of a Pratley Icon

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our Managing Director, Mr. Kim Pratley on 19 January 2021. He joined the company in 1979 after graduating from Wits University as a Mechanical Engineer. In 1983, after the passing of his father, George โ€œMontyโ€ Pratley, he took over the Companyโ€™s leadership at the age of 27. Mr. Pratley was a man loved and admired by many, and recognised as an inventor, innovative leader, keen aviator and industry icon.
