About us

PlumPot started in December 2019 in The Netherlands. We both come from the beautiful country of South Africa before we immigrated for work to another great country, The Netherlands. Initially, when we started PlumPot, we did not know what we wanted to achieve. We just knew we wanted to do something new, something different. 🙂

Through a couple of months, we realised what we enjoy the most, is to build and design new things or products. With that, we also love showing people what we make and most importantly, how we build it.
So, for now, PlumPot’s goal is to share our designs and projects with the world, while doing this we also want to show how easy it can be for anyone to do what we do.

We want to show the world if you can imagine it you can build it.

If you would like to see what we get up to please follow us on the social platforms below 🙂

Hi there! My name is Keri (Plum) and I love chocolate. I also happen to be an engineering nerd, a gaming nerd, a sporting nerd and I read cool books from time to time – who says you can’t have too many passions.

Life now: Originally from South Africa, we recently moved to The Netherlands and we are LOVING IT! I work full time putting my mechatronics knowledge to good use (-_-) and outside office hours I try to persue some of the passions mentioned previously.

Life in the future: Who knows! Join us as undertake this exciting adventure…

JP Potgieter

I am a qualified Mechatronics Engineer, with most of my focus on Electronics Design and embedded programming – Altium and I are very good friends. 

My main goal in life is to bring engineering to people who think engineering is to difficult for them. I feel we put ourselves in boxes too much, we feel that we are defined by our past, our culture and what other people think of us. I would like to put an end to that 🙂

Together we are PLUMPOT
