Today the CA Group of Companies comprises of CA & Dafin Sales - which are the two Sales and Distribution arms of the Group. As well as warehousing services, Kalahari sales and Winchester properties.
The story of the Group indeed reflects the ideal business environment that Botswana has been able to create for investors coming to do business in the country.
From humble beginnings in 1988, the company started off as CA Enterprises, acting purely as sales agents at the time. The transformation began in 1995 when CA Enterprises merged with Indian Ocean and Capricorn Agencies.
At that time the company consisted of three divisions, Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG), White Goods & Appliances, Bakery & Liquor.
CA Sales & Distribution started off providing warehousing, distribution, sales and merchandising services, as well as the debtors function for their principals, all based in South Africa. On 1st April 2004, the company acquired Dafin Sales & Distribution. This was a similar business to CA Sales & Distribution.
In January 2006 Kalahari Sales – a sales agency company representing Levers HPC and Warehousing Services – a logistic company handling goods from South Africa to Botswana from various Principals were also acquired.
May 2007 saw the company acquiring new premises which were now consolidated with the adjoining property of which we purchased from Volvo Trucks.
