Description of Business:
Founded in 1939 as a painting and insulation contractor, Southey has developed into a leading diversified provider of speciality multi-craft services to their specific industries.
The Southey Holdings Group has grown into South Africa’s leading ship repair company and the country’s largest industrial painting, blast cleaning and contracting services company catering for major industrial installations and mining operations. Through a policy of diversification, Southey has developed an industrial group of companies which manufacture for and service diverse market segments. The company is a market leader in South Africa and is becoming well established within several South African segments.
Over the past 20 years Southey has taken strategic steps of diversity away from its reliance on the contracting business and expanded into related industrial businesses.
