The History of Janson PDR

My name is Freddy Janson and I was born in Hannover, Germany in 1962. I started my apprentice ship at Drew’s Hannover Body Shop as a spray painter and panel beater for 3 years. After finishing my Air Force training I started my own small panel garage. In 1986 I got the chance to work for VW Hannover in the production body shop, final assembly and rework area.

In 1997 VW Wolfsburg development plant signed me into the VW Task force. This enabled me to see and work in many countries throughout the world, building new cars, production starts, and experience many different cultures.

In 1999 my work took me to Port Elizabeth, South Africa. This move changed my life; I met my soul mate, Minette. We got married in 2000 and after 18 years of at VW I resigned in the year 2004.

In June 2004 the time felt right to start Janson Paintless Dent Removal cc. determined and not willing back down I printed 500 business cards, visited car dealers and showed them what I could do.

Today Minette and I both work in the hail dent repair industry for car dealers, rental companies, and insurance companies. We have great pleasure in knowing that our business is now a one stop business for dent repair, valet, auto detailing and polishing on all vehicles.

It is safe to say that throughout the 20 years that I have been in this industry it has grown immensely and the amount of skill and precision has increased greatly. With saying that it has also become clear that quality and consistency has dropped, we have often come across careless work done by individuals that are under-qualified and inexperienced.

Our key goal is to ensure that our clients feel satisfied with the paintless dent repair work done. Quality, honesty, and real professionalism are the keywords for our industry. This is what we stand for and that’s why we value our membership at PDR Nation.

Join us in celebrating this month, our 10th year anniversary and our 10th year in South Africa. We value each and every one of our supporters. Thank you!
