Old World Concretes (Onsite Exhibitor)

Old World Concretes was founded in 1919 by William Spenser Winter.

Old World first began casting small concrete garden pieces in the backyard which he delivered to clinets by ox wagon. As the popularity of this quality products grew, he received requests for many more precast items.

In 1920 William Winter opened the first showroom in Jeppe with his son Hardwick Stephen Winter and changed the ownership tp W. Winter and Son. Many years of success at the Rand Easter Show led them to be gold medal winners for their outstanding show stands. During this period ornate fireplaces, polished marble terrastone bathroom items (such as sinks, basins, etc.) and their popular chimney piece designs, which can still be seen on many older Johannesburg houses, were some of the masterpieces of the Winter team.

The Leadership of the company was taken over by Cedric Stephen Winter, the son of Hardwick, and Erica and Richard Freeman (Daughter and son-in-law of Hardwick). Fountains and large garden ponds became very popular in the 1960's and 1970's along with many styles of precast walling. The company has always shown an ability to change with the times, a characteristic that has served them well as a greater demand in the building architectural fields has grown.

Now with branches in Johannesburg and Cape Town, the company moves into the future with Martin and Jeremy Winter (sons of Cedric Winter). Products continue to be of the highest quality, manufactured and delivered with the utmost respect for customer satisfaction. The integrity and high moral standards of the company, carried through each family generation from its founder, continue to make Old World Concretes a leading precast concrete manufacturer in South Africa
