DWR Distribution has announced Keith Pugin as the newest member of the DWR Distribution team. Pugin joined the company at the start of July and will assist with Prolyte, manufacturing, sales, installations and Prolyft motors.
Like so many in the industry, Pugin stumbled into this industry. After school he attended the Johannesburg Tech to complete his N1 to N4 studying motor mechanics. He then worked at Telkom for seven yearsand proceeded to a short stint in Cape Town-based CCTV manufacturing company.

Seven years ago, Keith joined Electrosonic SA. He worked in the systems department and did lighting installations including the manufacture and design of lighting bars, custom steelwork, motor controllers etc. Keith became a product manager for CM Lodestar & Litec Trussing, providing sales and technical support.

Keith admits that he had never seen a XLR connector when he was offered a position at Prosound. Once there, he grabbed the bull by the horns and worked on some great projects including the installation of the Johannesburg Airport’s Sound System, installations at the Emperor’s Palace, Graceland and the Grand Palm in Botswana.

“Over the last two years, I planned to start my own business,’ said Pugin. “Then I decided to come on board at DWR.’

DWR Distribution’s Duncan Riley is excited to have Pugin on his team. “I am very pleased are very pleased to have such an amazing individual join the DWR team,’ he said. “I hope that Keith has a good and long stay with us.’
