This London architecture office is not to be confused with the more active Australian firm of the same name (not architectural):
The Pentarch Group commenced business in 1984, combining the expertise of five individuals with diverse commercial backgrounds. In the early 1990s, the group’s primary focus was on three key businesses – representing major international manufacturers of military hardware, exporting containerised hay to Japan, and exporting softwood logs to South Korea – through its Industrial, Forestry and Agricultural divisions.
While the common thread across all three businesses was international trade, each has changed structure, target markets and product range. The group’s key strategy was to vertically integrate within each business model, aiming to secure greater control of aspects of the supply chain and provide broader options across the eventual trade.
◾Pentarch Agricultural significantly increased its hay exporting business following a strategic investment in a state-of-the-art hay processing facility in Narrogin, Western Australia. Export markets for oaten hay and cottonseed have been developed into Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and China, with hay sourced from the east and west coasts of Australia.
◾Pentarch Forestry log export operations has led to involvement in break bulk ship chartering, forest harvesting, inland transportation and merchandising logs through an innovative logistics model. Pentarch Forestry has exported softwood pine from all Australian states and territories and expanded into forestry operations in New Zealand.
◾Pentarch Industrial has transitioned from representing military hardware manufacturers to specialising in ammunition package supply and munitions demilitarisation – including chemical and explosive disposal – for the Department of Defence, Australian police forces and other industry participants.
