Our story

It all started in 1904 when Max Pupkewitz opened a wagon-building shop in Okahandja and then, in 1925, a general dealership at Ausspannplatz. Fast forward to 1946 and his son, Harold Pupkewitz, following in his father’s footsteps, establishes the Pupkewitz Builders’ Merchant - The Building and Engineering Division. Building on his ethos of “The goal is not to live forever, the goal is to create something that will”, the Pupkewitz brand slowly established itself across Namibia.

In 2007, Builders Warehouse was acquired. This is a specialist building material shop located in Katutura, Windhoek with specialised product lines, offering turnkey solutions to builders.

But we don’t just build, we also serve our farmers, the people who work to feed us. Kaap Agri Namibia, with its 21 branches across our beautiful country understands our farmers’ unique needs because let’s face it, farming in Namibia, is tough. Kaap Agri Namibia has been servicing the Namibian market for more than a decade, and now our footprint stretches all the way from Grünau to Ondangwa, with each store delivering the level of personal service and quality our clients have come to expect over the years. Kaap Agri Namibia. The place where people still count.

Pupkewitz Megabuild is especially proud of the fact that we pioneered Namibia’s largest and premier retail outlet that inspires fine living – Megabuild Lifestyle, established in Windhoek in 2014. Innovative, sophisticated and contemporary, Megabuild Lifestyle is proof that traditional hardware stores can be so much more. This unique shopping experience offers a wide range of products, ranging from gardening to home appliances and the latest in-home improvement trends.

The first-of-its-kind in Namibia, Pupkewitz MegaBoards was established in Windhoek in 2019 as a one-stop shop for wood-based products and hardware, offering high-end cutting and edging services. Whether you are a joiner, cupboard manufacturer, furniture maker or shopfitting company, we will deliver to your exact specifications

Smart partnerships are the way forward and we’ve branched out to urbane, chic and stylish interior design with the emphasis on quality and international brands. Spectiles, acquired in 2020, represents an expansion of our services and offering and redefines interior and exterior living. See what’s possible in our branches in Windhoek and Walvis Bay.

What’s next? Don’t blink just yet, the sky is the limit for Pupkewitz MegaBuild!



The Pupkewitz Foundation

The legendary entrepreneurship spirit of the late Mr Harold Pupkewitz as well as his immense love and passion for the socioeconomic development of Namibia and her people inspired the establishment of the Pupkewitz Foundation.

We are a movement to create possibilities and to make a lasting difference in as many people’s lives as possible.

- Meryl Barry

The dedication to his country and its people saw significant investments and financial contributions into various developmental areas as well as the formation of various strategic partnerships with government and civil societies all aimed at enhancing the lives of the Namibian people.
