About Poretech

Poretech was started in December 1988 by Leon De Jager after he was offered the Micromeritics distributorship. Micromeritics is Poretech’s main supplier, and Poretech has the sole agency for Sub-Saharan Africa.

The Hunterlab sole agency representation was given to Poretech in 1993 for the Sub-Saharan Africa division. Later that year, the Horiba agency for Air and Water Pollution monitoring in Botswana and Sub-Saharan African countries was added.

In 2006, Charles Noakes was appointed as a Sales Engineer after completing his B-Tech in Chemistry. In 2016, Charles was promoted to General Manager, and in March 2019, Leon retired, and Charles acquired Leon’s shares in the company.

Poretech grew from 2 employees to 6 employees from 2006 to 2017. Poretech has seen consistent growth since 2019, adding 3 employees and expanding its services, projects, and markets. This positive trend reflects the company’s ongoing success and development
