Company Profile

Pioneers in the manufacture of sewing thread in South Africa

ACA Threads is a family business with a rich heritage in the sewing thread industry that dates back over 70 years. Founded by the Marshing family in 1953, ACA has always conducted business with competence, integrity, and commitment to innovation through the implementation of the latest and most advanced technologies in order to meet global standards.

We are committed to run our business in an ethical, socially responsible and environmentally sustainable manner, which is consistent with our corporate objectives to optimise our resources and save costs. This is essential to continued business success – for us, as well as our customers.

For us to be the most competent sewing thread supplier and manufacturer in South Africa, it is vitally important to align ourselves with companies who understand and identify with our values and principles of business. For this reason, we have established partnerships with some of the leading sewing and embroidery thread manufacturers in the world.

Our alignment with AMANN, one of the world’s largest industrial- and embroidery threads suppliers and manufacturers, allows us to source the best possible Embroidery Thread and Non-Apparel / Speciality Thread, while allowing us to keep up to date with the latest world trends so we can offer our customers the best expertise in the field.

ACA Threads acquired A&E (the South African subsidiary of US industrial thread manufacturer, American & Efird) in 2011. This acquisition allowed us to combine the respective technologies, which has given us a stronger leadership role as a vertical sewing thread manufacturer in South Africa.

We continually look for new ways to innovate and optimise our production process to deliver the best quality at the best possible price. Our product quality is complemented by expert technical support and a range of value-add services to make your manufacturing business run seamless and efficient.
