The Teachers Group has spent more than 30 years years building up a commercial empire. The trading companies that operate these shops and businesses are part of the Group’s worldwide network of intermediary companies, offshore accounts and nominee directors, run by Teachers Group members.
The Teachers Group has been connected with a furniture manufacturing company in Shanghai, the Trayton Group, for more than ten years. Through linked companies, it sells furniture in cities around the world as Bo Concept, and under other names.
Teachers Group-linked timber companies run forestry concessions in Malaysia and elsewhere, and supply wood to customers around the world. And of course the Teachers Group runs hundreds of thousands of acres of profitable landholdings in developing countries, growing and trading bananas and other food.
Its most recent venture is a group of companies supplying Chinese merchandise to stores in Africa. This company is called CAT-Link. The shops are in Tanzania, Kenya, Mozambique and South Africa.
The CAT-Link group of companies join a long and well-established roll-call of commercial operations the Teachers Group runs in parallel with its ‘humanitarian ventures’
