As Ohlhorst’s interests have grown, it has become necessary to expand our fields of expertise into complementary spheres.
Ohlhorst Africa, Ohlhorst’s tiling and rendering division, fulfils tiling installation contracts throughout Africa. On-going relationships with the top names in the construction industry ensure our involvement in many of the continent’s major commercial projects.
Ceragran was started in 1991 by Cindy Gaspari as a specialist in the field of ceramics. While initially its attentions were focused primarily on Italy and Spain, the company was one of the first South African firms to successfully import tiles from the East. Ceragran has established relationships with a number of excellent factories in Malaysia and China, as well as other parts of the world. Visit the Ceragran Website
Ohlhorst Marble & Granite (OMG) was born in 1997 in response to a need to become more competitive by allowing Ohlhorst to beneficiate stone in-house. OMG handles tasks such as stone cutting, edging and polishing without having to outsource to competitors. The company’s production facility in Chloorkop is fully equipped with bridge saws, polishers and other beneficiating machinery, which allows it to provide not only for Ohlhorst’s needs but also to run as a separate entity, with a recent leaning towards stone and porcelain cladding.
Lightweight Building Solutions (LBS) was created in 2013 in a response to a growing need for new lightweight building technologies and green material use with increased thermal performance. Our Lightweight Building Solutions division allows us to provide the building and construction industry an array of award-winning construction technologies. Using lighter, durable materials, prefabrication of construction elements according to your specifications offers you design flexibility while decreasing your construction time and structure weight load.
