Our Story

Our story began approximately a 100 years ago, when the head of the family Ramharack Aheer, then only 16 years old, began his career as a trader in local commodities, such as hides, mealies, grain, timber and produce. In the early days the business was carried out on ox-wagon and donkey carts and later on push-bikes. As the family grew, various other areas of business were initiated. Aheers established a firm footing  in retail and wholesale supermarkets and suppliers to the building industry in the last 20 years. Aheers Group is a proud home to over 500 employees.
