Retron was established in 1969 and remains under the same management from day one to date. The company specialises in the field of switching, including proximity switches and transducers, cooling (fans, airconditioners and heat exchangers), protecting (fuses and fuseholders) and connecting products.
As all overseas principals represented by Retron are of world-class standard, Retron says it has adopted the slogan 'tomorrow's components today'.
Retron offers a full delivery service, serving the Gauteng area mostly, by a 24-hour delivery leadtime if the components are in stock. Leadtimes for imported components are also very short as all imports are done by regular airfreight consolidations.
Through Retron's website - www.retron.co.za - interested parties have direct access to all its principals' vast product information websites by simply clicking on the relevant link next to the name and product listing.
Over 65 000 line items are on Retron's computer system, so the company says that it is highly probable that it can always assist customers with components it specialises in.
