GRASS ZA was established in 1984 under the name K. Lautenschläger (Pty) Ltd, and started its operations in Cape Town. The company quickly rose to being the market leader for quality furniture fittings, and has grown from strength to strength since its inception. On 1 November 2008 the name GRASS ZA (Pty) Ltd was registered after the merger of the Mepla-Alfit and Grass groups.
GRASS ZA serves the South African market through its branches in Cape Town and Johannesburg, and a distributor in Kwa Zulu Natal. GRASS Shoppes are established through several retail partners positioned throughout South Africa. GRASS ZA further takes care of the immediate neighbouring countries to the South African borders, as well as several other African countries.
