About Us

Who We Are

Lacey's was started in 1999 with only two generic lucky packets. First deliveries to customers were made in the year 2000. From the early stages we identified the importance of Licensing, specifically to children's products. In 2000, negotiations started with Mattel and product was developed. Marvel product soon followed and then Disney in 2002. Lacey's is in the business of bringing quality product to the market across the core segment's it participates in. Lacey's has always put its consumer first to ensure that our products meet their exacting standards and are unwilling to compromise in this area. We represent world category leading vendors in their field of speciality.

Lacey's strives to take best practises from all its vendors and implement them in its markets. Our Management team has over 25 years' experience of bringing product to the South African and African market, with strong retail relationships and a well-connected sourcing network world-wide. Lacey's has also successfully exported product to Nigeria, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, Angola, Mozambique, Kenya, Zambia, Ghana, Madagascar, Mauritius's, France, Singapore and the United Kingdom.

The rest is history as they say, and to date Lacey's has developed, manufactured and distributed many different product category's.

Our Culture

Lacey's has a Culture that we believe is unique to the business. The basis of this Culture is fairness, which is applied to every staff member and in every aspect of the business. The company believes in every single staff member in their employ, and is always looking at ways to develop the staff. Lacey's strives to enhance their employees lives and maintain an environment that everybody is excited to be part of. Lacey's likes to maintain a balance, and believes that your day should consist of three parts, namely: 8 hours to work, 8 hours time for yourself and family and 8 hours to sleep. The belief is that if you give 100% in each of these segments all parts of your life will be in perfect harmony. This principle contributes to the overall aim of maintaining a happy work environment.
