Wesfarmers - everything you need to know

Bunnings Warehouse

From its origins in 1914 as a Western Australian farmers' cooperative, Wesfarmers has grown into one of Australia's largest listed companies with headquarters in Western Australia, its diverse business operations cover: supermarkets, department stores, home improvement and office supplies; coal production and export; chemicals, energy and fertilisers; and industrial and safety products. Wesfarmers is one of Australia's largest employers and has a shareholder base of approximately 500,000.

They're interested in Homebase, because they own and run Bunnings.
