Industrials & Manufacturing

The industrials and manufacturing sector includes automotive, chemicals, electrical and consumer goods (non-food products and packaging), building materials and supplies, and companies involved in aerospace and defence.

Many economies in Africa have challenges that need to be addressed to allow this sector to grow and expand. Among these are infrastructure upgrades, presenting development opportunities for investors to participate in meaningful change. Our track record in dealing with these challenges over the years extends our expertise in successfully assisting our clients through any hurdles they may face.

Although South Africa already has a well-developed industrials and manufacturing sector, there is room to expand its manufacturing base to significantly accelerate the country’s ability to compete in the global economy.

We offer investors and corporate clients legal support in acquisitions, disposals, and other commercial transactions, as well as regulatory advice.
