For example, in Africa Marley Pipe Systems was established in 1963 as part of the Marley SA group, Marley Pipe Systems quickly stepped up to become the first-choice manufacturer and distributor of plumbing products to the merchant trade and continues to dominate the building market to this day. Since then, Marley has expanded its value offering significantly, successfully positioning themselves as the leader in the manufacture of large and complex solutions to match the demands of the mining and industrial sectors, partnering on both small and large projects across the country and into Africa.
In 2013, Marley Pipe Systems further built on their leadership position by acquiring the assets of Petzetakis, an investment that represented a significant contribution to not only Marley as a brand, but also to the future of the South African economy.
