The origin of the South Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry can be traced to about 65 years ago when the South Coast was characterised by several independent towns.  Many of the larger towns eg. Margate and Port Shepstone had their own Chambers of Business, catering for their different needs.

In the 1980’s, there was an amalgamation of Chambers to form the Hibiscus Chamber of Commerce and Industry.  A subsequent renaming of the Chamber to the South Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry took place in the 1990’s to identify the Chamber as the representative body of businesses on the entire South Coast.
