G Fox & Co, was founded in the early 1960’s, as a family business, run by Cecil Fox and his son Gerald. Under Gerald, this once humble family concern grew into one of South Africa’s largest suppliers and manufacturers of rags. The business expanded its product range to include personal protective equipment (PPE), cleaning products and paper products. At the height of its rag production, G Fox & Co was the largest importer of second hand clothing used in rags in Africa.
The next chapter of the ever developing G Fox & Co began in tragedy, with the untimely murder, of the founder Gerald Fox in 2003. The company was purchased shortly after this by the Bidvest Group. It was as member of South Africa’s leading industrial conglomerate, that G Fox & Co was able to reach new heights and unprecedented levels of expansion.
Under Bidvest G Fox & Co was merged with Commercial Sundries, a large distributor of paper products throughout South Africa. G Fox was now a national player, with branches in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban.
This new exciting phase culminated in the construction of a state of the art facility in Johannesburg. This facility, set a new benchmark for the industry, and incorporated a very successful cash and carry offering.
Bidvest owned Giant Clothing was consolidated with G Fox & Co, into a division called, Bidserv Industrial Products. The Giant Clothing factory was moved to Swaziland in 2009, where a brand new factory was set up. The Swaziland factory, has grown to over 900 machines, producing 15 000 garments a day. The consistent reliable supply of workwear from the factory to the branch network of G Fox & Co, has proven to be a significant value proposition to the G Fox & Co customer base.
During 2011, G Fox & Co, acquired, two more business. Alsafe (Pty) Ltd and Multimerja (Pty) both of whom were leaders in their respective areas and product lines. The incorporation of these businesses, into the group, has cemented G Fox & Co, as South Africa’s largest supplier of PPE, cleaning chemicals, paper and industrial consumable products.
The company has flourished from its humble beginnings in a house in Kensington Johannesburg, to a significant and reliable partner in the South African industrial supply chain. The business now includes a branch network of eight fully stocked branches, 11 500 active customers and over 1200 staff members.
