About Obox.

Obox was officially formed in 2005 by two brothers from a small town in South Africa called Hout Bay. Then a team of two, one talented designer (David) and backend developer (Marc), the company has had various iterations from building websites for local small businesses, delivering pamphlets to post-boxes looking for work, to being recognized as one of the best international WordPress theme & plugin companies in the world.

We've built sites for some of South Africa's largest news corporations, international NGO's, large pharmaceutical companies and various other medium sized companies. Our products have been used by hundreds of thousands of websites, small and large over the years.

Obox now focusses on being an expert in all publishing and e-commerce platforms, from WordPress (using Elementor) to Shopify and Ghost, we've learned the nuances of each and know exactly which one to use and when, without using any extra apps or plugins that you don't need.

Obox in numbers.

Over 1,000 sites launched, 500+ WordPress commercial themes & plugins released. Over 1 million users of LayersWP (acquired by Elementor in 2018). We are a team of excited people based in Cape Town, South Africa who are thrilled to do what we do.

Well passed the
10,000 hours experience

We've kept our head down and spent years building a company that is efficient, responsive and trustworthy.

We won't be throwing complex terminology your way without purpose, we prefer speaking in a manner that actually makes sense.

We surpassed our 10,000 hours experience milestone a long long time ago, and that shows itself in fast, high quality, and reliable delivery.

We're obsessed with finding the solution to a problem, and will go to extra lengths to make sure that they're solved and don't happen twice.

We have and never would throw a customer into a generic support system, no matter how many requests we get.

Our industry is filled with experts who will sell you on a tool or a system which you don't need. We prefer taking the opposite approach.

Everyone here is genuinely excited to help bring sites to life. All of us are excited about delivering great work every day.

❤️ We are Obox, a friendly web company from Cape Town, South Africa.
