Dematech was founded in 1993 by Mario and Annemarie Delicio, two passionate and forward thinking business people with an in-depth understanding of beverage industries, especially in the African context. Since its beginning, Dematech has had offices in numerous African countries. Today Dematech has two main offices in Cape Town, South Africa and Nairobi, Kenya with presence in several other locations including Ethiopia, Nigeria and Angola. This diverse footprint allows Dematech easy access to all countries on the African continent to provide focused and specialised services. This coupled with a focus on an after sales service network is what has made the company so successful.
