Jaco de Jager
A milestone in transformation took place in the company’s timeline during March 2010 - when Jaco de Jager bought Gestetner Mutswako. Jaco had spent a number of years within the office automation industry and after a few years of working elsewhere, the opportunity to re-join the office automation industry caught his attention. In October 2009 Jaco pursued the acquisition of Gestetner Mutswako, which has now changed its name to Motswako Office Solutions.
