If you ask anyone who has been connected with the auto parts field of the automotive
industry at any time since 1950,you’ll find that the name Wannenburg’s has immediate
The foundation of the Wannenburg Group was laid by Daan Wannenburg in 1948, working in the scrap metal business. Two years later, in 1950, he established Wannenburg Spares.
One of his sons, Hendrik Wannenburg, identified opportunities in the caravan and camping industry and established Wannenburg Caravans, as well as a new Mazda franchise in Pretoria North and later expanded to the Gezina area where he bought the AF Sigma agency in Voortrekkersweg, Gezina.
The company identified a shortage of used spares in the industry and decided to import replacement body parts from East Asian countries to supply the growing demand for vehicle body spares.
All branches specialise in specific areas: three in used body and mechanical spares for passenger vehicles; one in 4X4 and bakkie spares; another in replacement body parts and automotive paints; a rebuild vehicle sales department; and the last in good quality used vehicles.
Currently the Wannenburg Group is committed to serve the industry, and its clients, by the third
generation of Wannenburg’s – a hands-on generation responsible for day-to-day management and
implementation of strategies. This continuity of the Wannenburg code of ethics is your assurance
of fair and straightforward dealing, quality, and delivery on our promises.
Because of the current trend of mergers, take-overs and buy-outs, like most business people you are undoubtedly finding it difficult to build sustainable relationships. When you deal with Wannenburg’s you can rest assured that by maintaining our founder’s values we are committed to continue building the long-term relationships that have been the cornerstone of our business.
Our many years of experience and expert knowledge enables us to source parts required to repair accident-damaged vehicles cost effectively.
Wannenburg’s has full-time staff available to assist our clients in sourcing new parts from our own replacement parts store as well as second-hand spares from our used spares-yards.
