Swartland is a name that’s synonymous with quality. Frankly, we’re obsessed with it. And it’s thanks to this dedication to quality that our products have stood the test of time since 1951.
But quality doesn’t only apply to our products: it’s infused in every facet of our business.
From humble beginnings, Swartland has grown into a multifaceted building supplies manufacturer. We offer the following:
- Three wooden window and door ranges – Cape Culture, Winsters and Kayo.
- Kenzo aluminium doors and windows
- Hydro garage doors and digi-automation.
- Summit XPS insulation boards and cornices, manufactured locally.
- The well-known Col brand, which includes PAR timber, manufactured pine products and two moulding ranges.
With distribution centres across the country, our fleet of trucks is able to deliver to hardware retail chains around South Africa and sub-Saharan Africa. Yet, despite the company’s enormous growth and diversification, what hasn’t changed are our traditional values of hard work and pride in our craft, our commitment to our people and our community, and our unwavering obsession with quality and delivering a quality experience.
SUSTAINABILITY IS DEEPLY INGRAINED
We pride ourselves on our integrity, and insist that our natural resources be utilised in a sustainable way.
Our customer promise is “Experience Quality”, and it’s our commitment to holding ourselves to the highest standard, ensuring that every interaction and every experience with us is a quality one – time after time.
IN THE FOREST
Managed responsibly, wood is a renewable resource. We give preference to responsible loggers, and use plantation-grown timber where possible. Our staff carefully monitor the harvesting process on site.
IN THE FACTORY
We’re committed to reducing waste. Our recycling programme uses excess wood chips to fuel the boilers that kiln-dry our wood, while our innovative air-management system dramatically reduces harmful emissions.
IN THE HOME
Composite gaskets in all windows and selected doors improve your home’s thermal performance.
