Barloworld Limited is a brand management company dealing with industrial machinery. It was once a huge conglomerate with numerous unrelated businesses. These businesses ranged from building materials, information technology, and motor vehicles to mining operations. The company restructured itself, unbundled a large volume of its assets and became the industrial brand management company it is today.
The company started out in 1902 selling wool products and later on engineering equipment. Through the years, it moved to selling and servicing Caterpillar machinery. Barlow got into the motor business and then eventually branched out to manufacturing of paint, stainless steel, cement and household appliances. It also acquired Rand Mines Ltd. and ventured into mining. By 2016, Barloworld merged with BayWa, a German-based company, to diversify their materials handling and agriculture operations in South Africa.
