A vertically integrated, 30% black owned business, operating primarily in the sawmilling and forestry sectors of South Africa.

Forestry at the sawmillTekwani has an industrious heritage, birthed in 1992 in South Africa’s Eastern Cape, and has grown over the last 25 years from a single sawmill into a large independently owned sawmilling group in South Africa.

We are driven by our vision to build a disciplined, entrepreneurial and leading agri-industrial family business that will stand the test of time.

An organisation that reflects the principles we so firmly believe in;

  • Humility
  • Principled
  • Disciplined ambition
  • Excellence in all the fields in which we operate
  • Benefitting our communities through creating employment
  • Building for the next generation.

Our forestry business units are located in the KZN Midlands, Northern KZN and Mpumalanga and there are currently four sawmills which make up the Tekwani Group. All mills are strategically located to meet the growing needs of our customers throughout all regions of South Africa.

Tekwani is a business that operates in some of South Africa’s most rural regions and provides meaningful employment to well over 2000 people. South Africa is a country with huge potential and substantial developmental needs. We look forward to meeting these needs and being part of the solution and success of our nation.
