About Us

Crowthorne Mica had its beginnings in 1993 when Crowthorne and Midrand were still growing. I.V. Bhaga (Issy) and Manoj Bhaga bought over the store from family relatives in 1999 and have kept the hardware business in the family ever since. Issy’s younger son Umesh joined the family business in 2016.

Crowthorne Mica has been an official Mica store for 5 years now – even though it was always a hardware store before. This store remains proudly family run and has been in existence 25 years.

Our ethos is very much about family, which extends to the staff and clients. Many of the staff and customers have been loyal to this store for the 25 years of its existence.

We have grown from strength to strength and is one of the few hardware stores with a build offering in the area.
As a Mica store, we are proud to offer our clients great specials, a wide range of quality brands and DIY expertise to assist them in reaching new heights. We pride ourselves on establishing long standing relationships with our clients!

We feel strongly about supporting our communities, that is why we are involved in the JAM outreach program which helps build and maintain creches in the Diepsloot area. We have already upgraded 3 creches in the Diepsloot area in the last 5 years with the aid of JAM. We are also involved in our community river cleanup project with both sponsorship and manpower!
