About Us

We are one of the largest Cape based paint manufacturers, with a network of strategically located stockists in the Western Cape.

Our mission is to manufacture high quality products for the paint industry and to add value through service excellence and strong customer relationships.


The late Karel Strydom and Peter Jennings, back in 1979

In 1979 the late Karel Strydom and Peter Jennings formed this company after recognising the needs of professional paint contractors. By that time they had gained vast experience and respect in the paint industry, while serving various reputable paint companies. Over the years they laid the foundations for Sabre's reputation as a company of true quality in every respect.


We presently operate from our factory in Parow, Cape Town, that was custom built in 1998.

The company is managed by it's owners, Charl Strydom and Kobus Pool. Charl joined the company in 1983 after having obtained a degree in science and Kobus, a chartered accountant, joined the company in 1994.

After our initial focus on professional paint contractors we have developed strong relationships with property managers, architects and local government agencies. We have also responded to the demand from the DIY market.

We have broadened our image as a paint company that produces quality products by developing our reputation for committed service excellence.
