Ian Dickie & Co. (Pty) Ltd was formed by the founder Mr Ian Dickie, in 1962. The Company, based in Cape Town, served the construction industry, holding agencies for the supply of concrete and soil compaction equipment.

In the years that followed the product range was expanded to include portable self-priming pumps. It was during this period that The Company secured the Selwood Pump agency from the United Kingdom which included the Spate 3B, a double diaphragm pump which revolutionised the self-priming pump market. This product amongst others, soon spread into the mining sector and it was as a result of this success that the Company launched its services across Southern Africa.

Ian Dickie’s philosophy was to maintain a high level of service with a strong ethical and moral foundation, a philosophy that remains the cornerstone of our business today.

Present day

Today the Ian Dickie group is internationally recognised as one of South Africa’s most respected manufacturers and distributors of Construction and Municipal equipment. Our Head Office and factory is based in Cape Town, with branch offices in Johannesburg, Durban and Port Elizabeth as well as a privately owned branch in Gaborone, Botswana. Full service representation is also available through our network of agents and distributors throughout Africa, the Middle East and South East Asia. We pride ourselves on providing comprehensive equipment solutions to the Mining, Construction and Municipal sectors as well as providing high quality replacement parts and accessories for our entire range.
