Springbok Broom and Brush Company, the first company of the Werner Group, was established in 1948 by Mr K. H. Werner, a brush machine technician who had emigrated from Germany before the Second World War. The purpose of the company was to manufacture Brushware for the mining industry. In 1956 Mr K. H. Werner and two of his three sons identified the need for a company specialising in the manufacture of power tool wire brushes in South Africa. Transvaal Brush Company which was established to cater exclusively for the power tool market, went on to become very successful and still dominates the southern African wire brush market up until today.
