ADCON cc has been founded in 1994 by Mr V R Gogol as a 100% Namibian-owned Company, based in Windhoek, with a branch in Walvis Bay. The name ADCON derives from ‘Additions’ to ‘Concrete’ and now, 23 years later, we are still honoring our original idea and concept :
Research and development of products, methodologies and service to the cement- and concrete industry and related fields.
