Sizabantu Piping Systems (SPS) is a Limited Liability company which was established in 2002. Sizabantu Piping Systems is a Level Three accredited BBBEE company, involved in the Manufacture, Marketing and Distribution of predominantly, plastic pipe solutions, to the Infrastructure, Agriculture, Mining and Industrial market sectors in Southern Africa.

Our mission is to position our business, to supply a comprehensive range of appropriate quality technology – predominantly plastic piping solutions – to the Construction, Agricultural Mining and Industrial market sectors throughout Southern Africa.
SPS was established in 2002 in Kwa Zulu Natal, where it was appointed as Marley Pipe System Pty Ltd’s exclusive Agent for the Civil, Industrial, Mining and Agricultural markets. During the following eight years, SPS enjoyed very good market growth as a result of satisfying and understanding the Industry’s needs. This growth required opening and positioning new operations nationally, to service our increased customer base. By 2010, SPS had grown into a strong independent company, which had established a strong foot print in Southern Africa. This encouraged a number of International Manufacturers & Suppliers, to approach SPS to represent their interests in Southern Africa, further strengthening SPS reputation as the leader in bringing new technology of appropriate systems, to the African continent. SPS success over the years can be attributed to the strong relationships and trust that has developed between their Customers and Consulting Engineers, and the “ownership” model, where Key personal are encouraged to have a vested interest in the business. In 2013, SPS was approached by Molecor Canalizaciones, a Spanish company, who are the acknowledged world leaders of Bi- axle Orientated PVC pipe technology, to represent and market their products in Southern Africa. The introduction of this new International accepted technology, proved to be an instant success and is now recognised as an acceptable alternative option for traditional pipe materials, used in Bulk Water and Potable water reticulations. With the growing demand and potential for this new product, SPS has taken the next big step, by forming a joint venture with their Spanish partners, Molecor, to establishing a state of the art, world class factory, in Richards Bay, Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa. This will be the first factory of its kind on the Africa Continent, producing Molecor TOM 500 PVC-0 technology pipe.
