Another subsidiary, JB Minerals, focuses on sustainable mining ventures. The company aims to become one of South Africa’s successful Black Industrialists, providing employment opportunities for local communities through empowerment joint ventures, company acquisitions, and partnerships.

JB Holdings also has a significant footprint in telecoms, oil, and gas sectors across Africa. Its subsidiary, JB Oil, is strategically placed to enter into joint venture partnerships with state-owned companies and private companies across the continent.

Social Impact and Job Creation

One of the most remarkable aspects of JB Holdings’ investment strategy is its focus on social impact. Since its inception in 2001, the company has created 23,575 jobs. It’s not just about financial gain; it’s about uplifting communities, providing employment, and contributing to economic stability.

The Vision and Mission

JB Holdings operates under a clear vision and mission. The vision is to maintain the highest level of excellence and professional workmanship in all projects.

Strategic Partnerships

Collaboration is key to JB Holdings’ success. The company has formed strategic partnerships with various stakeholders, including state-owned companies and private firms, to implement and manage projects co-operatively. These partnerships not only bring in additional expertise but also ensure that the projects meet the highest standards of quality and ethics.

Future Prospects

JB Holdings is continuously looking for new opportunities to expand its investment portfolio. With plans already underway to develop a blending plant in Gauteng and a large warehouse to service both the local and regional market, the company is poised for even greater success.


JB Holdings is more than just an investment company; it’s a catalyst for change, driving economic growth, and social development across Africa.
