About Bidvest Afcom

Always Evolving to secure growth

From humble beginnings in 1928 – with Afcom founder Sidney Harrisberg importing and marketing stapling equipment from the US-based Markwell Manufacturing Company (pictured below) – services have evolved to distributing, as well as manufacturing and selling the equipment, systems and/or products required to assemble, staple, stitch close and seal any bog, box, container or package used for finished goods.
Becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of The Bidvest Group in 1989, helped to expand Bidvest Afcom’s national footprint, cementing the team’s capability of providing technical service offerings across all industries. However, Bidvest Afcom has a much broader vision of becoming the leading African provider of end-of-line packaging and fastening solutions which are responsive to real customer challenges across the continent.
