A new strategic partnership

In September 2016, Amrod announced the sale of a majority share to The Carlyle Group - a global alternative asset manager with $176 billion of assets under management across 128 funds and 170 fund of funds vehicles.

Founded in 1987 in Washington DC, Carlyle has grown into one of the world’s largest and most successful investment firms, with more than 1 650 professionals operating in 35 offices in North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and Africa.

With extensive South African and African experience and a vast global reach, Amrod strongly believe that partnering with a highly-respected, internationally-renowned brand will help take their business to the next level, particularly in so far as shortening their timelines when it comes to expanding their African-footprint, as well as when it comes to the acquisition of target companies and entering into new product categories.

Amrod's founders, Amit, Craig and Nimrod, retain meaningful stakes in Amrod and the new Carlyle partnership is expected to have a positive effect for all stakeholders.

Amrod's New Head Office

Designed from the ground up to fit in with the company’s operational needs, highlights of the facility include:

  • A new best-of-breed warehouse management system to improve inventory accuracy and speed up operations.
  • A state-of-the-art conveyor system to move stock to the correct branding department quickly, efficiently and in an automated manner.
  • One of the largest branding facilities in the world, measuring 10 000m2, providing the desired branding space to ensure continual progress in the quest to brand all products quickly, efficiently and correctly every time.
  • A beautiful showroom for resellers to bring their corporate clients, designed to assist in deal-making and deal-closing.
  • A collections area that adjoins the showroom, reduces waiting times and focuses on getting orders from the warehouse to clients' cars swiftly.
