About Us:

Highway Function Hire was started more than 10 years ago by Andre and Pat McDonald, both experienced in the hire industry having previously worked in the function hire industry for a number of years.

From humble beginnings the company grew to be one of the most respected and popular function hire businesses in Kwazulu-Natal. By continually striving for excellence and emphasizing quality and customer care throughout all business dealings the companies reputation as a leader in the industry was strengthened.

In 1998 the company was bought by Jose and Maria Ferreira a couple with long-standing business interests and retail experience within the Highway area. With a continued commitment to quality and customer care, under their management the company underwent further growth within the industry and recently expanded its premises to include a new customer reception area, showroom, storage and warehousing facilities.

Although still based within the Highway area the company now provides function hire services throughout KZN and nation wide.
