Global reach, family warmth

IDU was founded in a garage in Cape Town in 1997. The culture of family is still at the heart of the business, but our reach is now multinational. We have distribution hubs in Johannesburg, Durban, London, Dubai, Auckland and North America.

idu-Concept, our flagship solution, is used by hundreds of companies in 30+ countries on 5 continents, and our oldest customers have been with us since the start.
