About Us

Our focus has always been to supply quality, value-for-money products. With that mindset, we select our suppliers and continuously look at improving our manufacturing processes and sales distribution network.

Our range of products includes rust-free foldaway wash-lines and clothes drying racks. The unique design of the Foxy Foldaway range enables us to supply to any destination in South Africa.

We intend to expand from having a national to a global footprint to areas where there is a demand for our products.
