Albrecht, Karl Friedrich - from South Africa
Country of meeting: in the year 1978
Our company’s founder, Karl Friedrich Albrecht, was a member of one of the leading merchant families of the Hanseatic port of Elbing, whose traditions of shipping, manufacture and trading led him to many corners of the world before he settled in South Africa in 1949.
Appreciating that this fast developing young country could benefit from advances made in Europe, the United States and later Japan, a group of companies was formed under KF Albrecht & Co, who based their operation on supplying the up-to-the-minute technology South Africa required.
