“Aspire to have Happy Stakeholders”

Tri-Star aims to further strengthen its reputation as a formidable force in the construction industry by creating longterm relationships with our clients, the professionals with whom we work and through delivering projects of superior quality.

We aim to continue investing our resources in Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment in order to facilitate meaningful change. We will continue to grow our own human capital from within, pacing our human capital abilities accordingly.

Tri-Star started in 1979 as a Painting & Renovating business. In 1997, Billy McNeil & Derek Wheals acquired the business. Soon thereafter, Tri-Star Construction was started to provide expertise in construction. A year later, Tri-Star Housing was formed to focus on the construction of houses. With the growth of the business came increased demand for plant & equipment which led to the formation of Tri-Star Plant & Equipment to source such requirements largely in-house.

In 2006 the shareholders decided to create a group structure under Tri-Star Group Holdings (TSGH) in order to enable corporate activity especially the empowerment of management and staff. Subsequently in 2007, an Employee Share Incentive Trust was created which acquired 5% shareholders in TSGH. In pursuit of growth in the Western Cape, Tri-Star Building Cape was formed.

In 2011, TSGH decided to promote an owner-management culture in various subsidiaries and also as an incentive to management. Thus TSGH undertook management buy-in transactions which lead to key management acquiring shares in subsidiaries. In 2012, TSGH concluded a BBBEE transaction with BA-Akhi Construction and also formed Corporate Partition & Ceilings. In 2013, TSGH created Tri-Star Development Services to offer property development services for TSGH and the market. TSGH is also exploring various growth opportunities in the greater Africa market.
