Kolor Kode

Our History

Originally founded in South Africa in 1968, KolorKode Filing Systems was established in Australia by Castledex Business Systems in 1984. At the time, its founder, the late Mr Ian Dewar created and patented the KolorKode Fullvue® Lateral and Quickvue® Drawer Files. Today, the business is owned and operated by Ian Dewar’s two sons, Craig and Bruce Dewar.
