Troupant Publishers is a book publisher based in Johannesburg. It publishes both NC(V) and Nated textbooks for TVET colleges. The company was started in 1998 and published a large number of titles, some of which have become major sellers.
Troupant is owned by Van Schaik Bookstore who purchased the shares in the business from the founder, Basil van Rooyen, on his retirement from publishing. Van Rooyen continues to consult to the business.
The technical TVET titles of Troupant were first published as the Mactech Technical series by Macmillan and later as the Southern Technical Series by Southern Books, and the list goes back almost 30 years. The list was republished and expanded in 2007-9 with the introduction of the new NCV curriculum by the Department of Higher Education and Training, in partnership with Macmillan SA, who handles the sales and distribution of the list.
