First African holding lectures at CPUT

FAH lectures at CPUT

First African Holdings (FAH) offers a CPD-accredited seminar on cladding with aluminium composite materials (ACM) to architects, quantity surveyors and other professionals in the building industry. When Mike Rodseth, a lecturer at Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT), heard about this seminar, he realised his students could benefit from more knowledge about this topic.

First African Holdings (FAH) was contacted by Lizette Swanevelder, organiser of the Winelands Built Environment Professionals (WBEP) Forum, to enquire whether we would be interested in hosting their monthly meeting. FAH was happy to welcome the WBEP Forum at the factory.

After a few formalities on WBEP’s side, WBEP chairman, Dick Crane, handed over to FAH Chief Project Manager, Van Heerden De Wet, who told the more than 60 visitors more about our signage division.


On his way to the Kruger National Park, First African Holdings’ managing director, Wynand Van Zyl, recently drove passed the Shell Bushbuck Ridge station in Mpumalanga.

He took a photo of the Shell pylon, manufactured and installed by First African Holdings (previously called Aerodyne Sign Technology) over 15 years ago.

During an interview with TABJ (The African Business Journal), a while ago, about the history of First African Holdings, Van Zyl said the following:

First African Holdings Lights Up Cape Town International Airport

AfriClad, a division of First African Holdings, recently did some revamping at the Cape Town International Airport for the Airports Company South Africa (ACSA). We removed the glass sheeting and then installed roof sheeting and ACM bull nose cladding.
Our LED division also provided a lighting solution by designing, supplying and installing eight downlight units.
Metriplex Media Cladding

Metriplex Media Cladding

Metriplex Media is a local media company specialising in retail advertising via LED screens. They approached us last year to provide a cladding solution to go with their own signs.

We were asked to provide a high-tech, visually-pleasing housing for LED advertising screens at the Oliver Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg. The screens were alongside the airport’s escalators. The challenge we faced was that the cladding needed to follow all along their inclining profile.
