First African Claddings (previously AfriClad) is one of South Africa’s leading suppliers of architectural cladding materials.
We are a division of HELDERBERG Technology Holdings (previously First African Holdings), one of the largest signage manufacturers in Africa, and are also the official suppliers of the ALPOLIC® range of aluminium composite material (ACM) , Equitone, fibre cement cladding and the Smartfix, fixing system.
Operating from a 4000m2 manufacturing facility outside Cape Town, we have a team of world class engineers and project managers, as well as highly skilled manufacturing staff and installation teams ready to give you a turnkey cladding solution.
We work closely with architects, building contractors and project managers to install cladding solutions that transform the interior and exterior of buildings into beautiful landmarks.
As a business we adhere to rigorous quality standards – HELDERBERG Technology Holdings (previously First African Holdings) was the first signage manufacturer in South Africa to have its quality system certified to ISO 9001 and currently holds ISO 9001:2008 certification.
We also recognise the critical role that employee ownership plays in building a successful business. In 2003, First African Holdings was one of the first companies in South Africa to perform a Broad Based
Black Economic Empowerment 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.
