About WG Wearne: WG Wearne was started in 1910 as a construction concern by its founder William George Wearne. It was initially involved in the sand and stone business in the small town of Carletonville, near Johannesburg, while the ready-mix division was established in the early 1970s. Since then it has become known as The Wearne Group of Companies.
Historically the Group operated only in the northern areas of the country. Now however the group has operations not only in Gauteng and Limpopo, but also in KwaZulu-Natal. It has progressed from a small family business to a present-day JSE AltX-listed company operating in some of the major metropolitan areas. The Groups’s products and services include aggregates, ready-mix concrete and mobile crushing and screening services.
Revenue was R389 million for the year ended 28 February 2017. The group employs almost 500 employees.
