Savignac AutoSpec

Savignac delivers quality solutions to window and door markets in Africa

SAVIGNAC was born in 1969 and initially the company was an exporter of general commodities (foodstuffs and building materials). Two decades ago, we were prompted by the building boom in South Africa and the growing interest in aluminium to diversify our focus. We designed a range of hardware for aluminium windows and doors, and introduced it to fabricators across Sub-Saharan Africa including door locks, door handles, cylinders, hinges, friction stays, vistafold hardware, patio door wheels, corner cleats, floor springs, door closers, window handles, woolpile, rubber gaskets, flyscreen mesh, etc. The rest is history!

SAVIGNAC has expanded its national footprint through its regional network. Proudly South African and Operating with Savi, our branches are located in Joburg, Pretoria, Durban, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and Nelspruit. We are the creators of the SAVI EURO, SAVI AFRIQ and SAVI brands which are distributed on the African continent.

SAVIGNAC is jointly owned by Howard J. Buttery, TSS Mauritius and Savignac's Managing Director Stephanie Harel. We are passionate about people, we embrace diversity and our team includes staff fluent in English, Afrikaans, French, Zulu, Sotho and Xhosa.
