BHBW – Two great brands. A new venture. A bright future.
BHBW is a leading supplier of equipment, technology enabled solutions and services to the material handling and agricultural industries in southern Africa. Leveraging our global brands Massey Ferguson, Challenger and Fendt in agriculture, and Hyster in materials handling, we strive to deliver flexible, value-adding solutions enabling our customers to operate more productively, profitably and sustainably. Further value is added by our parts and used agricultural equipment businesses Temo Parts and Terra Firma. Temo Parts is also the international distributor of Tree Hog, an innovative South African designed water-saving irrigation solution.
Our core values driving our relationship with our customers are integrity, excellence, teamwork, commitment and sustainability.
We can trace our materials handling roots back to 1929 when Hyster lift trucks were first introduced into South Africa, and have been involved in agricultural mechanisation since 2001.
BHBW, which previously operated as Barloworld Handling and Barloworld Agriculture, was founded in 2017 when Barloworld South Africa entered into a 50/50 joint venture with German trading group BayWa AG to further their agricultural and materials handling operations in southern Africa. This is the second joint venture between Barloworld and BayWa. In 2015, the two companies established a similar 50/50 partnership in Zambia, operating as BHBW Zambia.
As a South African company, we understand the value of transformation and diversity in addressing social injustice and are committed to the objectives of broad-based black economic empowerment (BBBEE). Our approach to transformation is holistic and includes employment equity, skills development, and preferential procurement. We invest in the development of communities where we do business, and fostering an inclusive company culture. Our core values – integrity, excellence, teamwork, commitment and sustainability – underpin our transformation initiatives, which are ongoing.
We currently hold Level 4 compliance in terms of the BBBEE Act, enabling customers to claim 100% of their procurement spend on their BEE scorecards.
