The company was started some 43 years ago, in 1974. The focus of the business at the time was geared towards the production of specialized products sold directly to the end user. The business has developed over the years and additional product portfolios have been added including the DIY range sold into the chain stores resulting in the situation today where Xpanda is one the most comprehensive manufacturer of barrier security products in South Africa. The business model and focus remain within the ambit of barrier security manufacture.
The DIY elements remain an integral part of the business and Xpanda has the enviable position of being the market leader of such products within the retail environment.
Brand strength and awareness are high due to the focused nature of the business and the long-term exposure the brand has had within the South African market.
