The Beier Group grew from small beginnings when in 1929, O.T.H. Beier, a young pioneer, left Germany against the wishes of his family and established himself in Durban as a wool merchant.
In 1931 O.T.H. Beier received an offer from Storm and Company to manage their newly commissioned scouring plant. He accepted the challenge and within a short time, exports to Europe commenced. Two years later he concluded an agreement to take over the scouring plant from Storms.
As the economy of the country steadily improved, O.T.H. Beier saw the vast potential for industrial development in South Africa and embarked on a policy of diversification and expansion, which has continued to the present day.
A joint venture with Lemaitre Securite, France's leading supplier of Safety Footwear, provides a platform for the exchange of ideas and technology to the mutual benefit of both companies. Beier Safety Footwear is therefore ideally positioned to offer its customers the latest technology, backed by world-class service.
The combination of Albany International's worldwide infrastructure and Beier Industries' expertise and experience in the Southern African subcontinent ensures that Beier Envirotec can offer its customers the latest technology, backed by world class service.
The recent integration of Erez Thermoplastics and SA Coaters into Macbean Beier Plastics has created a joint venture capable of producing the widest and most diverse range of coated PVC products, serving the automotive, mining, transport and furniture industries worldwide. Superb technology and continuous product development drive the company to produce quality products that consistently meet the demanding requirements of its customers.
