I joined the Belmor family business in 1963. Founded by my grandfather, Morris Kaimowitz, in 1922, Belmor was the forerunner to Kadimah. My own values are my family’s values and our business’s values.


The clients I deal with, some for as long as 30 years,  have come to rely on us for personal attention and the complete peace of mind that comes with knowing we have their best interests at heart, delivering exactly what they need when they need it. But what truly separates Kadimah from the rest is that we are a family business that treats every client like family and not just another job.

I joined Kadimah in 2004, but I feel like I have been in the industry forever. I grew up on the floors of the family factory, helping with the packing and generally causing chaos! I qualified as a CA but moved straight into the business. It had been a dream of mine since I was a kid to join the family enterprise.


I work at the coal face of the organisation, servicing clients and interacting with suppliers. I try keep  my finger on the pulse of our operations, and work closely with my team I try to stay focused and efficient with a healthy dose of humour. My Dad always taught us: never over-promise, and always be realistic and honest. These are the principles that govern my own day-to-day interactions with our clients. What makes Kadimah a great company is our people. We have an unbelievable team with vast knowledge and experience. The lengths that we go to on a daily basis to find solutions and meet client demands and deadlines astounds me.


Consistency is also crucial. We honour our promises to clients and suppliers alike and we’re solutions-focused, offering our clients a reliable one-stop-shop. They love that! And of course, our values are sacrosanct. We have grown into a sizeable business but we have retained the same core values my father brought to Kadimah when he founded it… the very same values my great-grandfather brought to Universal Bookbinding Works almost a century ago!

22 years experience

As a young kid, I used to run around the factory, marvelling at the printing and manufacturing processes going on around me. Even at that age, I knew I was almost pre-destined to join the family business.


My main focus is on exports and the international market. Though our roots are in South Africa, we are always looking for new global partners to expand and refine the products and services we offer, and for new global clients to present our truly world-class print management solutions on an international stage. I am personally very process-driven, and one of my key roles is to ensure that everyone follows our tried-and-tested, cutting-edge management systems and procedures. Over the years, I have seen Kadimah grow from a one-man operation to a highly successful and respected global enterprise with a full complement of staff.


The world of print – like the world at large – is changing rapidly. It’s not just technology. Client requirements and expectations are also shifting all the time. But even – or perhaps especially – in the technological age, service is key. And this is one area in which Kadimah has always led the way. But what sets us apart above all are our core values. These aren’t just theoretical constructs or a nice-to-have; they are central to how we work. Kadimah is a family business, and when you work here, you become part of that family.

I qualified as photolithographer in 1991, before working at various printing companies doing estimating and sales support. One of the main challenges confronting us in this business is the reliance on accurate and timeous feedback from our suppliers. I’ve found that good communication is the key to effectively maintaining our proud service record.

Kadimah stands alone in this industry in that it treats its employees as more than just employees. This really is a family business in all respects. All opinions are respected and valued. This culture of openness and mutual respect translates to our interactions with our clients, and is one of the key reasons we have the reputation we do.


Marie – Accounts

I’ve been involved in the financial engine room of businesses for almost three decades, spanning a wide range of industries. The information I generate helps track the performance of the company, enabling management to make well-informed operational and strategic decisions, and maintain financial stability. I also look to free colleagues from the sometimes burdensome admin work, allowing them to focus on what they do best – satisfying the wants and needs of our clients.


The printing and publishing industry is all about reputation and in this respect Kadimah is uniquely positioned to lead the way. I’m proud to support the business in maintaining our strong reputation.

As a qualified librarian (originally from the UK), I love the written word and books. But it’s in the commercial world of print that I’ve found my home. I bring a good listening ear and an innate understanding of what the client actually needs. I always communicate honestly and try to offer constructive advice where I can. I love meeting and talking to people, building trusting relationships, and making our clients happy.


What makes Kadimah unique is that we aren’t limited.  We offer clients the whole package, which ensures they don’t have to waste precious time and resources finding the best solution.


Chris – Sales Executive

Since 2008, I have worked with many of South Africa’s blue chip corporate businesses, predominantly in the retail sector. From national and cross-border print distributions to small ad hoc requirements, I aim to serve all of our clients’ needs offering the highest levels of personal service, expertise as well as print solutions that are economical and “fit for purpose”.


Given the ever-accelerating pace of change in technological advances, and the highly specialised industry of print and packaging, Kadimah Print stands proud as a unique solution for all print and branding needs. Aside from the professionalism, experience and unique offering that we provide, every organisation is a representation and manifestation of its people. Kadimah and its basis as a family business is a highly ethical, principled and consistent organisation which has stood the test of time.
