Company profile: Hiconnex

24 November 2021 News

Founded by Vincent Viet in January 1983, the interconnect solutions provider, Hiconnex, was taken over in 1998 by Hitesh Pema. In 2010 the company moved from its original home in Halfway House, Midrand, to a 1100 square metre premises in Centurion. It then progressed to a building space of 3000 square metres in 2015, motivated by its increasing market share, growing and expanding global markets which required a better equipped facility to support operations and staff expansion – the company currently employs 35 people compared to as few as five in 1996. Hiconnex caters for a niche market, targeting the high end of the electronics interconnect solutions market with a full range of RF and microwave components. Furthermore, it boasts a full QPL (qualified parts list) value-added distributor (VAD) facility, a high-end fibre lab as well as a fully certified Harting connector assembly facility. Inclusive of this service is the provision of technical and design support, from raw materials to complete assembled items.

An average of 60 000 line items are kept in stock for same-day delivery of Mil-spec wires, connectors and accessories and an extensive range of D-Sub, Mil-circular and PCB-mount connectors for the military and high-specification industrial markets. The quality of its work and its reputation has seen Hiconnex establish long-standing relationships with customers including Denel, CSIR, SAAB Grintek Defence, Paramount Group, Reutech, SKA and Thales. In addition, it is the agent for leading global suppliers including Alpha Wire, Axon Cables, Bedea Cables, Carlisle IT, CONEC, DSG CANUSA, EATON Souriau-Sunback, Glenair, Nicomatic, Positronics, Radiall, Rennsteig, Staco Systems and Techflex.

Targeting its market’s challenges with solutions, Hiconnex offers after-sales, design and technical support, backed by a deep understanding that the difference between winning and losing business lies in putting customers’ needs first. Its VAD, fibre and Harting facilities allow it to quote shorter lead times which gives an advantage over its competitors.

Over the years, the company has grown by introducing design and technical support of cable assemblies and harnesses, expanding its product range to accommodate the industrial market, as well as recently expanding its presence by setting up an office in the Cape Town region. This speaks to its vision of being the company of choice to its partners through technology and trust, leading the market through its solutions and innovations and supporting its high-end markets through knowledge – all in the name of ensuring that its customers’ ideas become reality.

Hiconnex’ successes were built upon the combined efforts of virtue-driven leadership, hard-working staff, partners around the world that support the company and the customers who place their trust in the Hiconnex brand. The team bolsters the bonds between staff members with year-end functions that are a perfect time to celebrate the successes of the year together, by putting aside their professional skills in favour of setting sparks flying with their performances on the dance floor to cap off a year of hard work.
