The Company

Name: Barry Berman    Founder: Mekaish Group in 1994

It took 3 years of intense lobbying & negotiations which culminated in the business getting the green light which made Personalised Plates a reality. The first Province to embrace this opportunity was KwaZulu- Natal then the Western Cape and Gauteng followed by all the other Provinces.

Barry initiated the opportunity to manufacture, purchase, resell, transfer low digit, unusual and/or personalised Cape Town Number Plates to car enthusiasts & collectors alike thereby giving motorists the ultimate personal choice in expressing themselves, marketing their brand or just having a laugh. Additional vehicle administration services were soon added including; license renewals, and car registrations, roadworthiness, number swaps etc.

In 2008 the company’s continual innovation and organic growth led to the decision to create a separate traffic fine division, using Mekaish’s cutting edge proprietary software, systems and expertise.

Another division was then rebranded - Fines SA was born, to service both individuals or fleets. Join our platform that offers a unique Fine Status Report, via 250 Municipalities nationally with up to 50% discount on all fines paid, and we pass on your receipts.
