Pillans invests in a variety of businesses with a focus on manufacturing high volume, consumable products. The business should have strong brands with protected intellectual property, that creates high barriers to entry.

We acquire bolt-on businesses that fit into our chosen market sectors as follows:

Fluid Control – Valves, Fittings, Clamps, Pumps, Fire Hydrants, Potable & Wastewater systems and Hoses
Infrastructure (Architecturally Specified) – Building Insulation (Commercial, Industrial & Residential)
Mining Services – Consumables used in underground mining
Primary Industries – Foundries
International – Outside of South Africa, with a focus on Australia

These businesses are managed out of our offices in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Sydney.
