about

Zendubind was established in 1936 and we still bind each book individually by hand.

Where does this strange name - Zendubind - come from? Many, many years ago there were two partners Mr Oosthuizen and Mr du Plessis. If you combine the Zen of Oosthuizen and the du of du Plessis you get Zendu.

Zendubind was established by the two partners in 1936. The business was located in Proes Street Pretoria since 1936 to 1961. On the 25th of July 1962 Zendubind was registered as a private company and moved to 83 Retief Street until June 2013. After Mr Oosthuizen passed away Mr du Plessis became the only member of Zendubind. His son, Nick, took the reins over after his death and he has successfully managed the business up until 2010 when he started sharing the reins with his son, Hansie.

Hansie Du Plessis is now the sole Director and Manager of Hani Bookbinders t/a Zendubind We are currently situated in the Bronkhorstspruit area on Plot 39 Jakhalsfontein Bronkhorstspruit. We trust that this historical account of our company will illustrate to you the fact that Zendubind is a family business with a proven track record that will flourish for many years to come.
