about swartland | our story

STARTING SMALL, THINKING BIG

The Swartland story began in 1951 with Oupa Hanekom in the small town of Moorreesburg, a few wheat fields north of Cape Town. He started supplying the local community with hardware and electrical goods, but Oupa’s ambitions lay far beyond the boundaries of Moorreesburg, and it wasn’t long before joinery became Swartland’s specialty.

When Oupa’s son, Oom Jurgens, took over the reins, he brought new ideas to the business. One of them was his personal philosophy of ‘continuous improvement’.

Today under the leadership of the third generation of Hanekom, Jurie, James and Hans, this desire to constantly improve is an integral part of the Swartland culture. It’s a place where traditional values, such as hard work and pride, live in harmony with new technology and inspired ideas.

The results speak for themselves – windows and doors crafted to perfection and manufactured to last. All ranges offer the leading products in their class – all backed up by knowledgeable national service teams.

Think Long Term

  • Think Long Term

    ‘Think Long Term’ guides us in everything we do, from how we make our products, to how we source our raw materials, to the value we place on relationships. Our commitment to increased energy efficiency and environmental sustainability is deeply ingrained.

    We pride ourselves on our integrity and insist that environmental resources be utilized in a sustainable way.

  • In the Forest

    We give preference to responsible loggers. We monitor the harvesting process on-site, because with responsible management, wood is a renewable resource.

  • In the Home

    Our products are designed to improve your home’s thermal performance, keeping it as warm or cool as you prefer. We’ve recently introduced Double-Glazed windows to the market. Independent tests have proved them to be the most energy-efficient windows in South Africa. The inclusion of composite gaskets on all windows and selected doors also reduces temperature loss.

    Wood is an extremely efficient insulator and its carbon footprint is much smaller than other materials: it takes 6.34 times the amount of energy to make an aluminum window, 4.41 times to make a steel window and 11.7 times to make a uPVC window* – than to make the equivalent window from treated wood.

    We’re fully committed to preserving our environment, this process is on-going and continuously improving. After all, we think long term.
