Dimbaza is a village located 20 km west of King William's Town on the R 63 road.
During apartheid South Africa, factories received high subsidies to establish factories in the Dimbaza area. More than 200 factories were operational then, especially in the textile sector. After 1994 these subsidies were halted and factories closed. Today most factory buildings are derelict and empty. There are only a few businesses still operational in Dimbaza. Land in Dimbaza is mostly owned by government, especially the Eastern Cape Development Corporation. Many buildings are vacant.
