James Halliwell Dickinson served his apprenticeship as a carpenter and joiner in England before coming to South Africa in 1901. In 1910 he formed J.H.Dickinson Construction and after his son was born the company’s name was changed to J.H.Dickinson & Son. In 1928, Jackie, son of James Dickinson, was engaged as a carpenter and with the building of the first blast furnace at Iscor Pretoria, found himself in the enviable position of being the first refractory specialist in the country. This was the beginning of John R. Dickinson Brickwork Specialists. In 1966 John R. Dickinson Refractory Brickwork Specialists changed its name to J.R.Dickinson & Sons (Pty) Ltd trading today as Dickinson Group (Pty). The Dickinson Group, successfully trading for more than 90 years, in 2003 celebrated its 75th anniversary in the specialised field of refractories, having grown to be Africa’s leading, independent refractory specialist, in the supply of turnkey services to both African and international refractory industries.
