The Duros factory opened its doors in Cape Town in 1904, after the owner, Hyman Ospovat (who was the son of a Latvian cabinet maker) settled here and became a South African citizen. The business started in Chapel Street, but moved to 119 Roeland Street in 1935.  H. Ospovat and Son traded as Duros, derived from DURable + OSpovat. Isaac Ospovat later took over his fathers' business while also serving as central city ward councillor for 29 years. He was dedicated to moving aside the group areas act, while also speaking up for better wages in the name of quality products.
