Barloworld Limited, a leading supplier of capital equipment, and BayWa AG, the German powerhouse in agricultural trading and technology, are pleased to announce an exciting joint venture. With effect from 1 March 2017, BHBW (Pty) Ltd will embody the best of these two titans of industry, forging a powerful partnership in southern Africa.
This is the second joint venture between Barloworld and BayWa, one of the ten largest agricultural traders worldwide. In 2015, the two companies established a similar 50/50 partnership in Zambia. Since this pairing, we have realised the close alignment of our strategy and values, as well as a shared culture of excellence and innovation. The time is right for us to build on these strong synergies, and our mutual vision for supporting food production in sub-Saharan Africa.
BHBW (Pty) Ltd commenced operations on 1 March 2017, following competition commission approval. Barloworld South Africa and BayWa each have a 50% stake in the new entity which has distribution rights in a number of territories in southern Africa.
Management, staff and infrastructure have remained in place, as has the Barloworld Agriculture dealer network. Above all, we will continue to offer the high level of technical support and parts supply to which our customers have grown accustomed.
Barloworld: at the forefront of agriculture and materials handling in southern Africa
Baywa: an international giant in agricultural technology and trading
