Dampcon® was founded by Marius Hanscombe, who since 1974, had been involved in construction and waterproofing. Dampcon® opened its doors, in May 1985, and quickly became recognised as the market leader in damp control and waterproofing.
The business evolved and the need to create our own products was identified in the early nineties. Dampcon® has since manufactured our own waterproofing compounds, plaster additives and injection fluids, ensuring that our stringent quality standards are met from raw material to finished project.
Dampcon® won the first Business Achievement Awards presented by Germiston Chamber of Business and Price Waterhouse. The start of the new millennium brought about changes with Dampcon® becoming a family business and the start of a trend towards commercial and industrial projects with an ever-increasing focus on BEE and site safety.
Today, Dampcon® is a second-generation family business, focused on expansion whilst maintaining an excellent relationship with every customer by delivering five-star service. We are proud to be an active member of DWASA, the Damp and Waterproofing Association of Southern Africa, to have grown a skilled permanent workforce through training and mentorship, and to be fully BBBEE and OHS compliant.
