Established in 1995 by Henry van Niekerk, Bright World originated from his background as a merchant banker specializing in trade and corporate finance. A graduate of Boksburg Commercial High School and the University of Stellenbosch (BComm.MBA), Henry leveraged his expertise to embark on the journey of founding Bright World, a business focused on the import and trade of a diverse range of commodities.

Among the ventures undertaken by Bright World was the manufacturing and importation of a robust wheelbarrow known as “The Beast,” conceptualized with the needs of contractors in mind. This heavy-duty wheelbarrow, completed in 2023, boasts distinctive features, including a robust frame and tray, along with a newly designed polyurethane puncture-free wheel featuring a 120mm tread width. The wheelbarrow is further enhanced with a durable powder coating paint, ensuring prolonged resistance against corrosion.

Specifications for the wheelbarrow encompass requirements pertaining to dimensions, materials, construction, and finish, tailored for use in construction and various building projects. The unwavering commitment to quality by the proprietor and staff has resulted in high customer retention, solidifying Bright World’s reputation in the industry.
