Southey operates as the holding company and is the driving force behind a diverse and growing number of independent and autonomous businesses, representing one of the largest and most respected privately owned groups in South Africa.
The considerable synergies that exist in the Group, together with a belief in entrepreneurship, decentralised management, incentivisation and communication have allowed Southey to turn ordinary companies into star performers.
The original performer as the founding company and backbone around which the Group was built, is Southey which after 70 years still yields exceptional growth in the industries in which it operates. Southey Contracting conducts its business from an international footprint with divisions in Gauteng, Cape Town, Durban, Richards Bay, Namibia, Zambia, Oman, Gabon and Angola.
Southey Contracting's commitment to the industry is total, as supported by the fact that we are founder members of the following bodies:
- Corrosion Institute of Southern Africa (CISA)
- Constructional Engineering Association (CEA)
- South African Federation of Civil Engineering Contractors (SAFCEC)
- Thermal Insulation Association of South Africa (TIASA)
