Our Story

On 1 October 1894, the Damara & Namaqua Handelsgesellschaft mbH was established in Hamburg, Germany to carry on trade in the German colony South West Africa. At the time of the WWI there were 32 branches throughout the Namibia and had been renamed Woerman, Brock and Co. When the war started the company almost collapsed. It was carefully managed by Ascan Woermann, Wilhelm Brock, Emil Heinrichsen, Willem Engberts, Erich Woermann and Wilfred Matheis and managed to remain afloat. The Great Depression and WWII were very challenging times.

In 1950 the August Schmerenbeck Haus in Independence Avenue, where in 1966 a supermarket with just 3 tills was opened; Woermann, Brock & Co. became only the second business in Windhoek to offer self-service shopping. Clients were intrigued by being able to collect their shopping items from the shelves.

Woermann Brock is still owned and managed by family and has stood the test of time.
