The Kynoch brand is more than 100 years old.
The Kynoch brand is more than 100 years old. Kynoch has been a groundbreaker in the fertilizer industry since 1919 and has proven it can stand the test of time. George Kynoch & Co first opened its doors in Birmingham, England in the 1850s where it manufactured explosives and ammunition. In the early 1900s, Arthur Chamberlain who was chairman of George Kynoch & Co explored the possibility of selling explosives to the Gold Mines in the Transvaal. He found that Dynamite was already being produced at Modderfontein and Somerset West and that exporting explosives from Ireland would have priced Kynoch out of the market.
In 2014, Kynoch became a member of ETC Group (ETG), a multinational conglomerate with its roots deeply embedded in Africa. ETG has a diverse portfolio of expertise across multiple industries, encompassing Agricultural inputs, logistics, merchandising and processing, supply chain optimization, digital transformation and energy. In their 2020 financial year, ETG procured and distributed over 8 million metric tonnes of commodities’ including maize, pulses, wheat, rice, sugar, oilseeds, cashew nuts, cocoa, coffee, fertilizer and farm implements. The Group’s passion lies in the upliftment of farming communities; an unhindered commitment since its establishment in 1967.
