Who is MPW?

It was clear to Simone Giuricich in 1938 that there was a real need for a forward-thinking and reliable plumbing company in South Africa, which is why he established Modern Plumbing Works (MPW). The key to Giuricich’s success was his absolute commitment to quality – a legacy which remains to this day. In the 1970s MPW began to diversify to work on large-scale construction projects, rapidly becoming one of the biggest construction plumbing companies in the region.

Two of the founder’s sons – Anthony, a professional engineer, and Luigi, a qualified Chartered Accountant – are still involved in the business.

As time has passed we have grown to become one of the most highly-regarded construction plumbing businesses in Southern Africa, offering our clients professional solutions on large-scale commercial plumbing installation systems.
