About Us

Bracken Mica Paint & Hardware was established in 1997. The store is situated in the CBD of Brackenfell, Western Cape at Bracken Manor Centre in Paradys Street. The previous owner, Harm Venter recognised the need for a paint and hardware store that would provide products, spares and services of excellence in the hardware retail sector. Through his initiative, the Bracken Manor Centre in Paradys Street was built where Bracken Mica Paint & Hardware was established 25 years ago. This business is a Member of the well-known Mica Hardware Group that strives to provide excellent customer services and market leading products at very competitive prices. Their strategy for growth and market penetration is supported by dynamic marketing programmes on a national level.

In January 2021, Allin Dangers started working with Harm Venter and officially bought the business in March 2021. Allin spent the past 27,5 years with Corobrik of which the last 12 years were at Exco level. He has over 40 years experience in supply to the building/construction industry and is therefore well suited to his new role. He has taken the business over as a going concern and has retained the entire team. Janco, Sterna and Johan form part of the Management team together with his sons Brett and Byron. A young and dynamic team to take the business forward.  THE LEGACY CONTINUES.
