ON TAP Plumbing Supplies was established in 1990 in Pietermaritzburg to focus directly on supplying the plumbing merchant business.
In June 1996, the first franchise proudly opened in the neighbouring city of Durban, some 90 kilometres away, to serve the public. Today over twenty years later, the ON TAP Group consists of owner-managed franchise outlets across South Africa, with the vision of becoming the leading retailer for bathroom, sanitary ware, kitchen and plumb ware in Southern Africa, and soon Africa itself. The ON TAP Brand has come from humble beginnings in a small town to being a well-known and respected retailer across the country. This has seen the ON TAP brand become a household name and a partner to homeowners and those who are in the trade alike.
