Swaco Group


The Swaco Group was formed in 1933 in Windhoek, with the agency distribution of various South African manufacturing companies. This was during the World depression and the worst drought in Namibia during that century. Progress was difficult, until after the great floods of 1934 and the gradual upswing in the world economy. In 1936 the Group obtained the agency for the Shell Oil Company, who withdrew from Namibia (South West Africa as it was called then). This agency lasted until 1972 when Shell re-entered the country. In the meantime, more agencies were acquired, and the Swaco Group is now comprised out of the following operating companies who has a branch in Walvis Bay, and distribute throughout Namibia and neighbouring countries:
