Welcome to Delawood
Delawood was established in 1995 by two partners who together have more than 30 years experience. It began as a small business specializing in the corporate and hospitality sector in South Africa. Delawood also concentrated on designing and building modern kitchens as well as custom-made cabinets and furniture.
The company ethos was to achieve the highest quality product, and in order to accomplish this, top quality people were trained and employed by us. We have successfully grown into a furniture company of 120 employees and a factory of 4000 square meters, and have subsequently expanded our scope of work to include granite and stone.
In order to achieve timeous deliveries and consistent quality, we have endeavoured to keep as much of our manufacturing processes in house as possible. Delawood initially specialised in the corporate sector, completing contracts for Merryll Lynch, Glencor, Xstrata, Johannesburg Stock Exchange, to name but a few. All our corporate contracts were at senior management and executive levels; including boardrooms, reception areas, pubs and pause areas.
We subsequently grew to be able to supply a completely turn-key operation from furniture design and cabinets to ceilings, bulkheads, tiles etc. During this period we expanded into the hospitality market completing projects such as the Grove hotel in Watford London with 240 rooms, the Al Faisaliah 5 star hotel in Riyahd Saudi Arabia, as well as the supply of bespoke furniture for 200 apartments alongside the hotel.
The strong growth in the domestic market encouraged us to open a showroom in Johannesburg, South Africa. This showroom showcases our range of modern kitchens, boardrooms and custom-made cabinets among others. What is very exciting is our current growth in our new showroom in Zimbabwe, with Nigeria and Ghana to follow.
As a result of this new market we have completed projects in Knightsbridge, Chelsea, London, Mauritius and our current focus is a strong expansion into Africa. We have for the last 4 years completed many projects in Tanzania, Congo, Nigeria, Ghana, Zambia, Angola etc. Over this period we have developed systems and procedures that allow us to work effectively in Africa ensuring the Delawood quality of service is maintained.
For the last 12 years we have been producing internal doors, frames, cabinets, skirtings and architraves of exceptional quality and unique design to match each of our client’s requirements. Our doors are semi-solid and certified with a half hour fire rating.
In conclusion, Delawood prides itself on not only its high quality of work but also its integrity. Our highly skilled and motivated staff, together with our top design teams, have ensured over the last 16 years that we have had a very successful track record.
