Beyond Investment Herdmans – Atlantis, Western Cape Herdmans is a producer of linen yarn, located in Atlantis in the Western Cape. IDC became involved with the company in 2001, when it provided funding to help fund a portion of Herdmans Ireland’s operations to relocate to South Africa. By 2005, all the Irish operations except a dye house and the marketing operations had been relocated to the premises in Atlantis. At the start of 2005, quotas on Chinese exports in the textiles sector were lifted worldwide, and the company soon started facing difficult market conditions. By 2006, the company’s Irish bankers and shareholders withdrew support for the company and Herdmans ceased manufacturing. In an attempt to save some of the jobs at the company, IDC took ownership of the company and started a process of restructuring. With the help from the landlord, Khula, and major creditors such as the City of Cape Town, 95 jobs were saved in the company. Herdmans is still facing significant challenges, but the IDC is positive about the company’s future. IDC’s development focus extends beyond the investment decision, and plays an integral part of the investment monitoring process
