Welcome JP

At the beginning of September, FMM’s workshop welcomed 30-year-old JP du Plessis as the new technician. Jean-Pierre was born and raised in Cape Town and after school he attended Cape Tech where after three years tuition he graduated with a National Diploma in Mechanical Engineering specialising in Electronics. He then embarked on a variety of jobs in different fields specialising in electronics, first with Viglietti Motors followed by Industrial Automation, Caudwell Marine and later with ZF before moving to FMM. Encouraged by his auto enthusiast father Henri, JP has always had a passion for cars, especially (like Henri) Alfa Romeos, and has been involved in a number of restoration projects. Now married to Marié, JP’s expertise lies in electronics but his underlying passion is for classic cars. He has completed a fitting and turning course and has a strong mechanical aptitude, all of which is now being put to good use helping to service and maintain the FMM collection. Welcome to the team, JP!
