DEKS was established in Melbourne, Australia in 1947 and created the first and original rubber roof flashing. Its focus was on creating, manufacturing and distributing leading brands within the roofing, drainage and plumbing industries ever since. Now, the company is applying its roofing knowledge to the solar market to provide protection and efficiency for domestic and commercial installations. PES was keen to learn more from Business Development Manager Martin Hipkin.
