Who we are
Since inception, Westbrooke has invested predominantly in controlling stakes across a range of industries including: retail, FMCG, industrial and commercial product import and distribution, manufacturing, building materials, services and property.
As a proprietary, on-balance sheet investor, WPI is a long term investor which takes an active role in its investee companies, supporting and partnering with management to develop strategies for ongoing growth and creating shareholder value. WPI has helped transform good privately owned businesses into industry-leading companies.
WPI’s key investments are Coricraft Group (comprising the Coricraft, Dial a Bed, Mattress Factory and Volpes brands) and The Pool Team (SA’s largest independent retailer and wholesaler of pool equipment, chemicals and related products).
Prior to the recent successful exits of Wizard to Amrod, Tecsa to Beijer Ref AB and the Forge Industrial Division to Invicta Holdings Ltd., WPI investee companies employed over 3 000 people with turnover of R4 billion. To date, the group has led over 40 deals with a combined value of over R6 billion.
