Swartland 70 Year Anniversary

Swartland: Building Together for 70 Years

The Swartland, one of the largest manufacturers of quality products in the building industry, turns 70 this year.

“We’re proud to be celebrating our 70th anniversary,” says Swartland CEO Hans Hanekom. “Seventy years is a significant milestone for any company, especially in tough economic times. With Covid-19 threatening the livelihoods of millions around the world, and with a global recession looming, we’re grateful to be able to envision future expansion into new regions and growth of new products by constantly diversifying our offering.

During 2021 and coming years, we will further drive our message of ‘Building Together’ – a message that we plan to continue to spread, and which speaks to building relationships with our valued customers, suppliers and colleagues, as well as to helping rebuild South Africa physically with our range of products.

“While 2021 is bound to be a difficult year, Swartland is committed to helping the construction industry overcome challenges by staying at the forefront of technology, design, production efficiency, and ongoing research and development.”

The Swartland range of products includes wood and aluminium windows and doors, PAR timber, skirtings, finishes, manufactured pine products, cornices, garage doors and garage door automation – and, most recently, XPS insulation board.

With more than 42 000m 2 of warehouse space and a national distribution footprint that’s supported in nine major centres around South Africa, Swartland has a reputation for ensuring that its products are available, reliable and manufactured to the highest quality, with after-sales service to match.

And quality doesn’t only apply to the Swartland’s products – it is infused into every facet of the business, from service to employees, and encapsulated by the customer promise “Experience Quality”.

Swartland encourages its people to see past their computers and production lines and to know that they’re part of a greater mission to deliver quality to the homes of millions of South Africans.
