We believe in providing products of the highest quality standard. We believe in doing business in an ethical, fair and legal way, with honesty and mutual benefit to all parties involved. 

tonneau KING was founded in 2013 by Quintin du Plessis. He realised that there is much value to create in the market of Automotive Accessories by looking at the hassles people experience with existing products. He then developed the tri-fold® covers range and launched the first-ever lockable soft tonneau cover in South Africa, followed by the hard tri-fold® cover.
In 2015 he developed a universal dust seal kit for tailgates.
