About Us

V-Core (Pty) Ltd was founded in December 2012 by a group of distinguished local and international investors and entrepreneurs. The South African start-up is located in Cape Town and manufactures and markets Vermiculite based fire-protection and insulation boards and associated products for the local and international market.

South Africa is the leading producer of the highest quality Vermiculite (supplying 35% of world demand), a mineral ideally suited for the manufacture of fire proof and insulation boards of the highest standard. V-Core locally transforms raw minerals into finished products meeting the strategic objective to “value-add at source” of the South African government.

V-Core’s Vermiculite products meet all criteria desirable in a green product, having a very low carbon foot print, both in mining of the mineral and the manufacture of the finished product, being chemically inert, recyclable and not having any negative impact on the environment when disposed of and can even be used in soil rehabilitation.
