Today, building on our long-established reputation for producing high-performance coatings, Raffiq Mohammed, who comes from a Dulux background, has refined some of our original formulas and raw materials, enabling us to enhance our ‘heritage’ products and expand our lines into new markets.
From its humble origins in Natal Associated Agencies, which laid the foundations for Dekade both as a business and as a brand, Dekade has since grown to become the most respected paint specialist In KwaZulu-Natal and a serious market player across Southern Africa.
NAA principles are guidelines for the future. Today, the father of Dekade, Pieter du Plooy – who remains at the helm as NAA`s managing director at age 71 – still serves customers at the counter or from his office, giving them valuable advice and personal service. Many customers call to buy paint from him in person, at NAA`s busy store at 183 Pietermaritz Street, in the heart of Pietermaritzburg’s CBD.
This blend of cutting-edge innovation and deep experience provides the compass that’s guiding Dekade into the future.
