Potch was founded in
2001 by John Cloete and Ralph Kleinschmidt.
At that time web development was only in reach of
corporate companies and selected people. We saw the
opportunity and we were trained to start this industry
and since 2001 GSD Potch started web development.
We stared with a BANG with Aardklop (a very successful
arts event held in Potchefstroom) we were exposed to
this industry in a matter of days.
Ralph Kleinschmidt resigned as partner in 2003 and John
Cloete was the sole owner of GSD until 2009 that Eldi
Cloete signed up as his new partner. We were blessed
to have Riaan van Breda as partner from September 2006
until June 2007 as he was a true asset to GSD Potch
regarding our servers and our ways ahead. We will always
be grateful of his valuable input in that short time.
We are proud to say that we are one of the largest web
development companies in our province. We have created
more than 450 websites in the past 16 years. Our client
base is more than 18 000 mail clients on our servers and
growing by the week.
GSD Potch operated from 99 Molen Street in the Potch
Bult area for several years and we had some hard times
there. We moved to Nelson Mandela Drive in August
2009 and never looked back where we were, you cannot
change the past but you can create the future...
opportunity knocked on our door in May 2016 and we were
able to create new and permanent offices in 17 Smit
Street, Potchefstroom. As this is our property GSD will
hopefully not relocate ever again.
Our values and our existence are only through hard work,
integrity and passion of what we do and the people who
we serve. Personal relationship with our clients and co
workers are a valuable part of WHO and WHAT we are..
We thank God Almighty
for his blessing without Him GSD Potch would not have
become what we are today..
God Bless all personnel and our clients...
