OUR STORY

SAVIGNAC DELIVERS QUALITY SOLUTIONS TO WINDOW & DOOR MARKETS IN AFRICA

SAVIGNAC was born in 1969 and initially the company was an exporter of general commodities (foodstuffs and building materials) to the Indian Ocean islands. In 1999, the company was prompted by the building boom in South Africa and the growing interest in aluminium to diversify its focus. A range of hardware for aluminium windows and doors was designed including door locks, door handles, cylinders and assorted accessories which was introduced to fabricators across Sub-Saharan Africa. The rest is history!

SAVIGNAC has expanded its national footprint through its regional network. Proudly South African and Better Each Day, the company’s Inland and Coastal operations are located in Pretoria and Cape Town, with Finance based in KZN. Savignac is the proud creator, owner and distributor of the registered brands SAVI EURO, SAVI AFRIQ and SAVI in South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa.
