Who We Are

In 1965 Gus and Josie with R500,00 (about $200.00) in their pocket, started an adventure, to be free, have fun and make interesting products.
Gus needed a surfing suit, they started a wetsuit company, Dad cutting Mom sewing. The original company’s name “ Surf ‘n Ski wetsuits was
changed to a two syllable word that would be easily remembered: ZERO. In the late 80’s the unique degree symbol was added: ZERO°
Zero° Industries cc has pioneered many industries, surfing, diving both recreational and commercial in South Africa. Together with my wife,
Louvaine, Zero° remains an innovative family owned and managed business, its most recent achievement was the first locally manufactured
inflatable personal floatation device (generally referred to as a life-jacket).
We will continue to manufacture superior quality PFD’s, wetsuits and PPE products in South Africa for the local and international markets,
thereby undoing the injustices of our past by the greatest means possible.
