Our passion for keeping industry running efficiently started 50 years ago.
In 1972, Ernest and Janice Howarth opened a small business selling heating elements and “Magnet” wire. Brian Howarth joined his parents in the business a few years later. Together, the Howarth’s set the benchmark for successful family-owned operations in Durban at the time. From humble beginnings, Magnet has since evolved to become a multi-disciplinary expert in the Energy and Sustainability industry. With his daughter Nicole as one of his fellow Directors, Brian continues to lead the business to extraordinary new heights.
