About Everflo 


The concept of Local Economic Development is gaining widespread acceptance in South Africa. One major example is that of the town of Atlantis in Cape Town.

The removal of state support galvanised the local community into action.

Everflo is supporting the Atlantis Special Economic Zone Community Stakeholders Network, a voluntary association which strives to empower the Atlantis community.

Many of our staff members are from Atlantis and we believe that the training and development initiatives we provide will inevitably lead to the community’s empowerment.

The founder of Everflo, Evert Potgieter grew up in a small fishing village on the West Coast of South Africa and was inspired by a friend of his father’s, a manager of a nearby fish factory, to study Mechanical Engineering and specialise in refrigeration.

Evert later worked on fishing vessels to identify faulty systems. He gained much experience in design and installations which prepared him for his solutions-driven approach in the refrigeration industry.

Involvement in the early days of binary ice system development served him well because of its revolutionary status at the time. Evert started out by joining a partnership with Pam Refrigeration, a Norwegian-based company, which he later bought out. Everflo was founded in 2002 and grew into an internationally recognised company, respected for its solutions-driven and innovative approach.

Today, Everflo plays a meaningful role in the total fishing value chain, striving to improve efficiency and environmental targets.
