Find out more about Cobra South Africa.


Cobra was established in 1951, opening a factory in Krugersdorp that manufactured taps and plumbing fittings for the local market. The company was founded on the premise that business success would only follow the production and supply of consistently superior products and so the first cornerstone of its success was Cobra's uncompromising commitment to quality.

In South Africa Cobra forms part of the LIXIL Africa brand portfolio.


Cobra views design as an art form and its products aren't merely manufactured, but rather carefully crafted to make a lasting impression. This craftsmanship, along with a dedication to quality and a strong design focus, has cemented Cobra's position as both an industry and brand leader.


Cobra is a leader in water-control technology, research and development. With its unwavering commitment to quality and a continuous focus on product development.


Cobra produces one of the most comprehensive ranges of plumbing fittings in the world.
