“Southey Contracting is proudly 51% black-owned and is wholly committed to transformation process of South Africa.”

Southey Contracting supports the process of BBBEE through consistent implementation of skills development programmes and responsible, transparent ownership transfers that add value to both shareholders and the business.

Social and Economic upliftment.

Governments in Africa need companies that are ready to face the many social and economic problems in the continent. Southey is backing the South African government in this process and believes that it can support governments in reducing poverty and inequality and in improving health and welfare.

In South Africa, Southey Contracting has been a major campaigner for skills development. Since 2005 we have trained the highest number of black artisans through the Merseta learnership programme. The various trades include welders, boilermakers, fitters, turners, electricians, scaffolders and painters.

Continuous training and skills development
consistently make us a cut above.
