STARTING SMALL, THINKING BIG
The Swartland story began in 1951 with Oupa Hanekom in the small town of Moorreesburg – no more than 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. 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 Hanekoms – Jurie, James, and Hans – this desire to improve constantly 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.
