Nestled in the picturesque KwaZulu-Natal Midlands area of Karkloof is Jetteson Timbers, a family-owned and operated business with Brendon Raw at its helm.

Brendon grew up in Karkloof, outside Howick, where his parents owned 90 hectares of land with a trading store. He had always been drawn to the practicalities of life rather than scholarly pursuits, so after completing school and his army conscription, he was eager to start working. He began running the family trading store with his wife, Ninette.

The partnership has been incredibly fruitful as they have grown an impressive business while raising a family. Their daughter, Justine, now lives in the Cape and works as a wine marketer. Hayden, their son, is completing a BCom Business Management degree and recently returned home to work as a Junior Manager at Jetteson Timbers.
