Willburg stands for traditional values and respect for the hard work and achievements of past generations. From a time when there was nothing else but a man and his own abilities, experience and ingenuity to help him survive in the harsh natural world and to succeed in conquering the wilderness for the betterment of his family and his community.
Our name derives from that of Schalk Willem Burger, a big name in the history of South Africa and the acting President of the Transvaal (South African Republic), from 1900-1902. Generations before Schalk Willem Burger, history saw the first of his ancestors, Berndt Burger, arrive at The Cape from the Hanseatic city of Lübeck in 1690. The Burger family made their home in The Cape for 150 years before migrating as part of the Great Trek from the Cape Colony to Natal and Transvaal as the region developed under the influence of new arriving European settlers into the British Orange River Sovereignty. In 1854 The Orange Free State was proclaimed and the subsequent Boer Wars in 1870 and 1899 resulted in the ousting of the British and the declaration of the Zuid Afrikaansche Republiek under Schalk Willem Burger renamed a decade later in Union of South Africa which was changed once again to Republic of South Africa in 1961.
Fast forward to 2014, and the latest in a long line of Burger generations, Willem Burger, began a cooperation with German partners in Hong Kong to begin the process of launching the Willburg brand on the world stage.
