Who was PPA?

PPA was started in Cape Town in 1966.  PPA is established as one of the most respected poultry housing and equipment suppliers in South Africa.

When Julian Mirvish, Bob Barlow and Bob Brotherton started importing production equipment for the South African poultry industry in 1966, they could not have foreseen that their fledgling business, Peninsula Poultry Appliances, would become one of the most influential suppliers in this sector.

And yet it did.  Not only that PPA, as it is commonly known, was the very first South African poultry equipment supplier to design and build panel housing in South Africa, a venture that proved so successful that panel housing soon became the industry standard in this country, but also that it build the reputation for continued customer support and service excellence.
