Vaal Gas has sold gas at the right price for over 46 years. It was founded in 1968 by Ron Josie. One day in 1978, a young dairy farmer by the name of Barry Klein stopped by Ron Josie’s home along his milk delivery route and asked Ron if he wanted to sell Vaal Gas. A bottle of whiskey later, the deal was done.
From the onset, the company sold gas as the official Easigas LPG distributor for the Vaal and it still is today. Other specialty areas include gas appliances, gas equipment, doing gas installations, camping, 4x4ing, clothing, fishing tackle, fireplaces and the installation thereof.
In 1995 Vaal Gas expanded and opened a branch in the River Square shopping mall. Today the focus of this store is on clothing, footwear, and outdoor gear. The store stocks popular brands like Jeep, Salomon, First Ascent, Rocky, Crocs, Hi-Tec, Leatherman, Victorinox, Maglite and LED Lensor.
