The Ipic Group was established by Mr Maartens in June 2004. With its three main divisions - Media, Education and Investments – Mr Maartens wanted to provide a platform for co-investment in property and entrepreneurship in software and property development.

Since 1982 Mr Maartens and his family have developed and invested in commercial property. The first developments in 1982 were the Heritage House office building in Claremont and the Kenridge Shopping Centre in Kenridge, Durbanville. In 2001 Die Boord Shopping Centre in Stellenbosch was acquired and in 2003 Habitat Centre @ the Mall in Somerset West was co-developed with partners. These four properties were known as the "DD portfolio".

Since 2004 Ipic has purchased five shopping centres and in September 2007 Ipic Properties purchased the entire DD portfolio. As at
September 2008 Ipic Properties owns and manages eight shopping centres and one office building in the Western Cape. Since acquisition most of our properties have undergone refurbishments and re-developments to ensure the long-term sustainability of the rental income streams and the high quality of the properties.
