About Us

DM CPE is a South African owned and black managed home renovations and maintenance company that was founded in 2015 by Abongile Dwane and Khanya Makiza. This BEE Level 1 company boasts an array of trained artisans for the domestic and commercial sectors such as home-owners, schools, offices, residential or shopping complexes. Abongile started the business by securing small projects in private homes in the Eastern Cape. It expanded dramatically and Khanya came on board to formalise the recruitment of artisans, provide marketing and establish a digital footprint. This enabled the company to increase capacity and it has since expanded into the Gauteng region. The company is instrumental in training and enabling young artisans to apply their trade and learn critical business principles. DM CPE also provides funding and additional support for small scale carpenters, plumbers and electricians thus guaranteeing the completion of projects and ensuring faster turnaround. DM CPE has the capacity and intention to secure medium to large scale developments.
