About Us

Keefer Brothers® was founded in 1928 by brothers Trevor and Colin Keefer. One of the first products Keefer Bros. manufactured was the glass automotive fuse. Marketed under the brand name "ZAC", Keefer's expanded their product line from fuses to include such products as starter switches, push pull switches, dimmer and tumbler switches, grease nipples and various automotive petrol fittings.

Trevor's son, Geoff remembers starting to help his dad make the first gas taps in about 1961. During this period the company also manufactured the well-known Keefer propelling pencils. Since the early 60's Keefer's have always been at the forefront of gas development. They developed a special hot plate burner to cope with Natural Gas. In 1983 they were the first manufacturer in the world to come up with floor and wall mounted gas bayonet socket connections.

Now, a third generation of Keefer's is at the helm. Geoff's daughter, Leanne and her husband Paul are continuing the tradition of Keefer Bros.

"Having been established for over 75 years, we at Keefer Bros believe that working together and providing efficient service will maintain the integrity of our company to ensure that our customers are satisfied and confident to approach us for all their manufacturing and gas component requirements."
