Wearne is one of South Africa's oldest suppliers of materials to the building and construction industry. Established in 1910 as a construction concern by its founder William George Wearne, the company was initially involved in the sand and stone business in the small town of Carletonville, near Johannesburg, and the ready-mix division was established in the early 1970's. Since then, the company has grown into what is now known as The Wearne Group of Companies, supplying the construction industry with a complete building material solution.

Historically operating in the northern areas of the country, the Group now has operations not only in Gauteng and Limpopo, but also in KwaZulu-Natal. What was once a small family business is today a JSE AltX-listed company operating in some of the major metropolitan areas.

Wearne's products and services include aggregates, ready mix concrete as well as mobile crushing and screening services.
