The Company

Windmill is the largest  100% privately-owned fertiliser producer in southern Africa outside South Africa exporting its products mainly to Zambia and Malawi, and a certain amount to Mozambique with long term plans to pursue opportunities in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Angola.

It's headquarters are at Westgate on the north western boundary of Harare. It’s assets include two fertilizer manufacturing plants, bulk handling and bagging facilities and a crop chemical formulation plant as well as an animal health stockfeed plant, all in or close to Harare. All sites are serviced by rail with a private branch line linking the St. Marnocks site with the National Railways of Zimbabwe network.  The company manufactures and distributes granular and blended fertilizers and a wide range of straight materials using domestically sourced nitrogen and phosphates, and imported raw materials, principally potassium chloride and potassium sulphate.

WINDMILL imports and markets crop chemicals supplied by a number of the world’s leading principal companies.  An in-house foliar feed plant produces our range of NUTRIFOLs of  which we are very proud.  Additional product is sourced through domestic and international trading, enabling WINDMILL to supply a comprehensive package of fertilizer and crop chemical products to its customers.

For more than 20 years WINDMILL has also been an established stock feed manufacturer and sells beef concentrates as well as phosphate licks for supplementary feeding of cattle in winter and summer.  We are also a retailer of animal health drugs and accessories.  Our product is renowned, tried and tested.

WINDMILL'S product portfolio is marketed domestically by a dynamic countrywide marketing team while export business is handled by its external shareholder, Yara Zimbabwe. Over the years, WINDMILL'S products have been marketed in virtually all of the neighbouring countries.
                                    

WINDMILL'S high standing as a reliable and competitive supplier of top quality chemical products, owes much to the fact that the company has Zimbabwe as its home market. In addition to being amongst the most intensive users of fertilizers and crop chemicals in the developing world today, Zimbabwean farmers are renowned for their discerning and innovative attitude towards fertilizer and crop chemical usage, with the emphasis being on service, cost and efficiency as well as safety.

With such knowledgeable and critical customers, and intense competition in the market place, WINDMILL has had to be continually alert to changing agricultural practises in terms of technology, marketing and packaging, in order to maintain its place in the market. Operating in such an environment has enabled WINDMILL to amass  a wealth of agronomic, technical and marketing knowledge in the agricultural field that are invaluable to its customers.
 

Both Zimbabwean and regional customers have reaped the benefit of the company’s accumulated expertise.
