Naledi Group believes unity, excellence and trust are key to being the largest black owned manufacturing company in Africa with the ability to compete locally and internationally, driving transformation and industrialisation through investment in plant, people and products.

In 2013 a consortium consisting of the IDC, Sibusiso Maphatiane and an Employees trust acquired the majority stake of Dorbyl Ltd, a listed entity who owned the foundry.

Immediately after delisting in July 2014 the shareholder initiated an extensive capital investment plan into the foundry as well as a corporate restructuring to separate the foundry from the rest of the Dorbyl group.
