We undertake all our activities in a highly responsible, professional and competent manner. In doing so, we continuously improve performance towards achieving an ultimate objective of zero with regards to Safety, Health, Environment, Risk and Quality incidents.


Aberdare positions itself, and has indeed been recognised throughout the world, as a pioneer in technological advancement. This philosophy has been amply illustrated by our success in developing unique solutions to everyday problems faced by an incredibly wide range of industries. In co-operation with the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS - the national standards organisation), Aberdare serves on a number of International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) cable working groups, one of which deals with the development of test methods for cables in fire situations.

Aberdare works closely with the South African Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and various major Universities and Technikons in the quest to continuously upgrade its product range and manufacturing capabilities. Aberdare is determined to retain its leadership in the cable industry through the development of cost-effective solutions to common problems faced by many of the world's developing nations, and by working closely with customers to meet their every possible need. We are determined to remain abreast of international developments, and indeed set our own goals to maximise our company's growth.

It is this philosophy that Aberdare is determined to follow, now and into the future.
