ADDING VALUE TO LIFESTYLE

STEINHOFF aims to be a leading value and discount retailer within the global markets we serve.

Bruno Steinhoff rang the bell at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in December 2015, celebrating as the furniture manufacturer he founded in 1964 returned to Germany after 17 years on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange. Steinhoff International is now Europe's second largest furniture retailer.

Bruno Steinhoff first started his furniture distribution business in 1964 in Westerstede, Germany. He moved into manufacturing in 1971 and in the 1980s started acquiring numerous smaller companies, forming Steinhoff International, which traded in Steinhoff's city of residence, Johannesburg, until 2015.

Bruno was chairman of the company until September 2008 but still serves as a non-executive director and at 77 he is as passionate about Steinhoff today as he was in 1964, when he started his furniture imports company in Germany.
