More About Us

Commando Bande is a family owned business and was first established in 1984 under Ritvier Beleggings Pty Ltd by Mr. Johnny Viljoen.  Commando Bande started out with truck, earth moving and agricultural tyres for Sasol Mining but in 1996 branched out with a new building and started doing passenger tyres as well.

The company grew and in 1989 Mr. Marius Viljoen joined his father and became Managing Director for Ritvier Beleggings.

In 1991 the business was reregistered as Ritvier Tyre Company (Sasolburg) and branched out to deliver even more auto specific services like brakes, shocks, exhausts and batteries.

Currently we are part of the international Point S group, we are registered at Quadrem Ariba and we are a vendor for Sasol Mining and Sasol Chemicals.
