BRITS POLES started off as a family-run business over 20 years ago. Starting from humble beginnings, the business grew into a household name for the supply of CCA and Creosote treated Poles in South Africa and also Exports into Africa.


In 2020 the Company underwent a transformation and is now wholly owned by Azkoyen (Pty) Ltd.


What we do

Azkoyen (Pty) Ltd has been a supplier of raw material timber to Treating Plants and Mining Timber Companies for many years in South Africa. With an extensive interest in the harvesting and supply of raw material timber, the opportunity to extend the value chain into Treated Timber was a natural progression of the company’s growth.


The gain in the Value Chain from Plantation to Customer allows us to offer great Quality with great Service. Contact us for your Treated Timber Poles.
