We are the leading supplier of Laundry, Catering and Dry Cleaning equipment with globally recognised clients in almost every country throughout Southern and Central Africa, including Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Botswana, Tanzania, Namibia, Swaziland, Lesotho, Zambia and Malawi

Lead Laundry and Catering (Pty) Ltd has it’s origins operating out of a small Durban office in 1986. The name ‘Lead’ was derived from the initial letters of the words in the original company name – Laundry Equipment Associated Distributors cc, and from very early on the word ‘Lead’ was considered central to the company’s vision and how it wished to be perceived in the industry – as the leader.

The company has over the years expanded to offices in Johannesburg, Durban, Cape Town, Bloemfontein and Nelspruit with its Head Office relocated to Johannesburg in the mid 90’s, where it remains today.

Lead is particularly proud of the longstanding relationships it has developed with its suppliers – these are relationships which in most cases have been built up over the greater part of 25 years, and the friendships developed as a result add significantly to the depth and strength of the business relationships they support.

Lead’s suppliers are world leaders at the forefront of technological innovation, and so the company is always confident of being able to offer its customers contemporary and relevant product innovations which are underpinned by quality manufacturing processes and approvals.

Lead’s businesses continue to be run today with the same values, principles and ethics as the business that was founded some 28 years ago; where value, personal customer service, continuous improvement, honesty, accountability, humility, social responsibility and the environment, remain the cornerstones of everything that we do.
