About Us

Founded in 1977 in the Central Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal, Macksons Hardware has established itself as a local leader in the hardware and building material industry, delivering an extensive range of high-quality products for more than 40 years. Our reputation is based on our dedication to quality, successful procurement, and superior service in the supply of standard and specialised requirements.
As a family-owned and operated business, Macksons Hardware has developed long-standing relationships across the public and private sector. Whether homeowner, tradesman, contractor, major enterprise, or the indigent, our customers trust us to deliver for the project at hand.

Our History

Our history begins with our founder – Mr Ebrahim Amod Manack – in 1977. Mr Manack opened a small material store then known as Macksons Saving Centre on Albert Street in Estcourt, KZN.
About a decade later, we made a small introduction to hardware products, tending to a growing need from local tradesman. Soon, we began expanding our range considerably. The 1990s then marked our early growth from strength to strength in wholesale hardware supply.
During 2000, Macksons Wholesale Building Material was formally conceived, trading in all hardware and building supplies and paying attention to quality as well as approved products.

Building Value Through Quality

We understand that the foundation of any successful project starts with strong and long-lasting components. Because of this need, a commitment to materials of high standards and high quality is our top priority.
We stock an impressive selection of hardware and building materials that are ISO rated and SABS approved. If we do not have a product on hand, know that Macksons Hardware prides itself in going the extra mile when it comes to procuring everything a customer requires – no matter how difficult.
Sourcing the best of products gives our customers access to quality and not quantity. We stock renowned brands such as Swartland, Corobrik, Cobra, Sika, Lasher, and more.

Superior Service From Local Experts

The exemplary product range at Macksons Hardware is backed by our expert sales team.
Our friendly staff are here to answer questions, work within budgets, and offer in-depth advice on the building trade and product selection. Customer requests are carefully matched to particular salesman based on area of expertise. And whether via phone, email, or in-person, we take the time for one-on-one discussions, making sure to understand what will serve a project best.
A growing fleet of delivery vehicles makes bulk purchasing from us simple and hassle-free. We offer the convenience of online/telecom ordering and home delivery of more than 14 000 competitively priced building materials. Our delivery team is professional, efficient, and experienced with orders of all sizes.

Community Development & Social Responsibility

South Africa requires an economy that can meet the needs of all our economic citizens – people and their enterprises – in a sustainable manner.
To this end, we actively assist our local indigent communities in growth, education, charity initiatives, social welfare, sustainability, and primarily, home ownership.
Coming from a previously disadvantaged background ourselves, we have been deprived from tendering for certain jobs and have also been rejected as the preferred supplier. It is our ethos to achieve a workplace that is demographically representative of the population, whilst maintaining competitive ability.

We are fortunate that Macksons Hardware has continued to grow and expand since our opening more than 40 years ago. As a company, we are proud of our business standards and are thankful for our customers. Whatever the future may hold, we aim to never compromise on high quality and exceptional service.
