2020: now called Indogo Brands.
With the severe foreign import restrictions imposed by the newly elected Nationalist government in 1948 Yardley looked to establishing its own manufacturing facilities in South Africa. An African-based company was launched with head offices established in Cape Town in rented accommodation. This was replaced by a building to their own specifications, commenced in 1959 and opened in 1960.
