Scandia Wire Products manufactures hexagonal wire netting, diamond mesh, wire garment hangers, mild steel galvanised wire and allied wire products. Scandia was established by the O’ Sullivan family in Bulawayo in 1959, initially to manufacture barbed wire but the emphasis soon changed to hexagonal wire netting, which remains the company’s core business.
The company standardised on German netting equipment with much of the ancillary equipment being designed and manufactured by the O’ Sullivan family a tribute to their resourcefulness and skill.
In 1992 Scandia installed its own wire drawing and galvanising facilities and as a result is able to meet the netting factory’s entire requirements. Scandia continues to be the market leader on the local market and is able to compete effectively in regional export markets to the extent that 60% of factory throughput is exported.
Scandia gained ISO 9002 certification in 1997.
Scandia has added a number of products to its existing range, notably. Oznet – a hexagonal wire netting primarily for use by ostrich farmers Securamesh – heavier gauge wire netting intended initially for the security market but which has gained acceptance by pig farmers Household coils – 500grm coils of plain galvanised wire for the DIY market
