Southey Africa was able to springboard off the success of Southey Contracting in South Africa upon the group’s expansion into other Sub-Saharan countries.

With its Head Office in Johannesburg, Southey Africa first established itself in Zambia where it achieved considerable success on the copper mines. This led to its expansion into the Democratic Republic of Congo’s copper belt, followed by mining regions in Botswana, Tanzania, Mozambique, Madagascar and Oman on the Arabian Peninsula.
