Who We Are

In 1997, Johan Mostert, the founder of the JM Group, in response to a lack of hiring facilities in the area, started Ceres Plant Hire. Initially, the business supplied small equipment and tools to building contractors as well as DIY enthusiasts in the Ceres region of the Boland.

It didn’t take Johan long however, to realize that building contractors would also need toilet, storage and office facilities on site so Johan proceeded to offer his clients a complete, comprehensive, hiring service and established Rent-a-Container and Boland Toilet Services.

More recently, JM Group expanded yet again, to incorporate the Talisman Hire brand into the group and extend our services beyond Ceres, to include a new branch in Durbanville as well.

The JM Group continues to offer a total concept hiring, sales, repair and maintenance service to a wide range of customers in the Boland and Cape Town region.

We stand by our motto ‘Quality with Integrity in Harmony’ and believe that upholding these merits forms a solid basis for extending the Christian values that are so important to us to every aspect of our business dealings.

Our experienced employees, who are all highly trained experts within their respective fields, have been with us for many years and are passionate about making a positive difference in people’s lives. We work as a harmonious team ensuring a fast, efficient service that addresses all your requirements.

Forming a partnership with our customers is important to us so that we can work together with you and offer you the very best product knowledge, quality, service, planning and advice which is key to the successful outcome of your project.


We believe that a skilled employee is a confident and happy employee and at the JM Group we are committed to making a difference in our community.

We host certificated welding training courses which can be attended either at our facilities or at a venue of your preference. We are flexible so we will adjust to your requirements.

Black Economic Empowerment

The JM Group is committed to the upliftment of the local communities in which we work. Our employees are provided with regular skills development opportunities and assisted in nurturing a career path within the group, that will enable them to enjoy personal career growth, as well as stable, long term employment.
