DADO Manufacturing Timeline

Staying ahead of technology and design trends since 1998.

1998:

Starting small. Like all good stories, ours began in a garage – manufacturing décor tiles. Not long after, DADO Creations relocated to a modest 200 m2 building in Silverton, Pretoria.

2002:

Discovering DADOquartz®. We advanced in our trade and as our skills in the bathroom ware industry improved, our product range grew. After testing various bathtub and basin materials, we developed DADOquartz®.

2004 – 2005:

Introducing robotics. We officially approved DADOquartz® as material for our bathtub and basin manufacturing. The Acanthus was our first hand-shaped DADOquartz® bathtub. During this time, we also incorporated our first casting robot into the manufacturing process.

2009 – 2011:

Going international. Rapid progress saw us deep-dive into trending bathtub and basin design shapes. We entered the international market in 2010 with exports of our expanded DADO Creations range to England and Italy.

2012:

Getting a new company. It was time to branch out, and we registered a new company, DADO Manufacturing.

2014:

Inspired by cities. Our international footprint spread with our City Range – inspired by London, Dubai, and Amsterdam. The Toronto and Rio bathtub and basin ranges were added during the following year.

2015:

Automated finishing. We installed our first finishing robot to further improve the quality of our bathtubs and basins.

2017:

OEM market opportunities. DADO Manufacturing started producing specific models as an original equipment manufacturer for brands in the USA, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

2018:

Big on kids. Three child-friendly bathtub and basin designs added to the DADO Manufacturing collection.

2019:

Universal splendour. Our largely automated 4 200 m2 top-class facility has a significant production capacity, delivering our innovative, luxurious, and high-quality products globally. We also updated our logo to a crossover brand image, which is a mark of perfection.

2020:

Built-in beauty. We made an addition to our range that allows for built-in bath designs.  We also expanded our global footprint to Sydney, Australia, opening a new showroom to house our DADOquartz® collection.

NOW:

Built for practicality. DADOquartz® is proud to introduce the innovative design of carved out grab handles.  Our basins make beautiful countertop pieces but can now be installed as under-mounted, granting you the gift of choice.
