 General

We all know that the South African Textile Industry is only a shadow of its former self.

Many companies have closed down or moved to other locations but still there

are companies doing good business despite many problems

The cost of electrical power having risen out of all proportion has not

helped those companies who consume a lot of power.

Spinners and weavers in particular.

We at Alco still try hard to maintain close contact with our customers.

This is not easy these days where travel has become expensive but we are

only a phone call or email away.

We welcome your enquiries so give us a try.
