Through Cannatas experience and reputation they have developed secure relationships with various selected suppliers and warehouses both locally and internationally.

Bespoke materials are on order only and subject to availability at time of enquiry.


L.Cannata was established in JHB by founder Liborio Cannata.
In 1920, Liborio passed away and the business was left to Vincenzina Cannata who took control until her son was ready to take the reigns.


Italo, the son of Liborio, at the tender age of 17 took over the running of the business.
In 1960 the company diversified into quarrying and bought the first quarry rights in Rustenburg, which was duely sold to Impala Platinum.


The grandson of Liborio, Italo Cannata, current head of the business started working with the company with his father who passed away in 1978.


The fourth generation Claudia, Italo and Christiano were introduced in the company. Presently Claudia & Italo, great grandchildren of the founder, Liborio, are working closely alongside Italo Cannata to lead the company strongly into the fourth generation.
