Sharp-Rite was established in 1949. Twenty five years ago, Mr Ali Seedat took over Sharp-Rite as a dedicated Saw Doctor operation. Today, it is one of the most comprehensive distributors of saws cutting tools as well as the selling and repairing of all power tools and machinery. Sharp-Rite’s mission is simple: “To provide a specialised and efficient service to the markets we serve”. In the early days, the sales of saw blades and router bits helped establish the business within the industry. Ultimately, this led to a strong customer base and the success which management and staff enjoy today. Over the years, in order to grow the business, Seedat and his team started selling power tools and woodworking machinery. Seedat’s son, Ismael, now runs the business and continues the company’s ethos of distributing only the best quality equipment. By providing unrivalled customer service and post-sale follow ups such as repairs, service and maintenance; Sharp-Rite places itself in a very unique position.
Sharp-Rite’s service to clients is the sourcing and delivering of high quality cutting consumables, specialized engineering and wood working tools.
