About

First African Holdings is one of the largest manufacturers of signage products in Africa. Through our AfriClad subsidiary, we also offer an impressive range of aluminium composite cladding (ACM) materials, Equitone, fibre cement cladding and Smartfix, fixing system.

We have particular expertise in the retail environment, the financial services sector and oil industry, to which we are the largest supplier of signage products in the African continent.   Corporate identity- and branding signage is our playground.

Our company motto– Showing the Way – underpins many of our business decisions from our approach to quality to the way in which we achieve an inclusive working environment for our staff.

The first signage manufacturer in South Africa to have its quality system certified to ISO 9001, First African Holdings obtained original certification in April 2006. In 2009 we were awarded ISO 9001:2008 certification, this was renewed in 2012 and our current certification remains valid until 2015.

Adhering to rigorous quality standards gives our customers the assurance that their projects will be executed to the highest quality standards.

This is because we do more than just design, manufacture, install, and maintain signs. Unique in the signage industry, we also offer world-class engineering and project management services.

We achieve this by employing some of the best professionals in the field. Among our staff are 10 graduates, including two engineers with masters degrees, a number of technicians, and numerous other highly skilled and experienced staff.

We also recognise the importance of employee ownership in contributing to a successful business. In 2003, when the rest of the country was still only talking about Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment, First African Holdings concluded a BBBEE transaction that saw previously disadvantaged staff take up a 40% stake in the company.

We're pleased to report that FAH was profiled in The African Business Journal, a prestigous online publication for Africa's top industry leaders. Read more about us here in the October 2013 edition.
