The Latin word concretum has been synonymous with strength and durability throughout history. Ancient traces of the tough and durable material known as concrete date back 7 000 years and have been discovered in some of the most celebrated buildings of the Roman Empire. Yet, despite this early evidence, somehow the art of making concrete was lost. It wasn’t until the 17th century that concrete was rediscovered and once again became one of the most commonly used construction materials of all time.

Today, World of Decorative Concrete (WODC) – the experts in construction and decorative concrete including ground and polished concrete floors, countertops, tiles, overlays, wall claddings, furniture and décor accessories – continues the legacy of this versatile material, transforming the ordinary into timeless, luxurious products.

WODC is one of the largest concrete grinding and polishing contractors in South Africa and showcase projects can be seen from the Ivory Coast to Mauritius, Namibia, Botswana and South Africa.

Today, leading architects routinely specify WODC products for their high-end projects. WODC is a proudly South African company and all products for walls, floors and work surfaces are locally designed and manufactured. WODC also enjoys the professional backing of two well-established companies: Quickslab and Stucco Italiano.
