Freddi Stafford first imported JB Weld into South Africa in 1997 when he was looking for an epoxy that was suitable for both workshop and industrial clients.

When he started 307 Lubricants in 2015, JB Weld was once again an obvious product to stock.

With nearly 20 years of supporting and selling JB Weld we have the knowledge to help, assist and advise you on all types of repairs.

About JB Weld

The J-B Weld Company was founded in 1969 by Sam and Mary Bonham. Sam had discovered a need for a “cold weld” product to use in his truck service garage, instead of traditional torch welding. Working with a Texas A&M chemist, he formulated an original “tougher than steel” two-part epoxy and named it J-B Weld. Sam and Mary soon went from selling the product out of their car to auto parts jobbers across Texas, to selling it in stores throughout the U.S. and internationally.

In 2008, when the company was purchased by a group of private investors. The product line has also been broadened to meet the changing needs of customers, including new adhesives for metal, wood, plastic, and general purpose use.
