Company profile: IC Logistix

25 September 2019 News

IC Logistix was started in 2011 when an opportunity opened up to attain the distribution rights for Fujikura,a Japanese group with a popular range of equipment for the fibre-optic telecommunications market. As an importer and distributor of specialised technology and equipment, IC Logistix is presently the sole distributor for Fujikura and AFL (American Fujikura Limited) in southern Africa. The creation of IC Logistix was funded by three shareholders, who put Zach Yacumakis in charge of running the show. Having initially started operations out of a garage in Ferndale, the company is now based in beautiful offices with a staff complement of eight people, and Yacumakis has become the fourth shareholder and managing director.

With a 20-year background in the IT industry, Yacumakis sees the fibre-optic industry as being closely related, and enjoys working with amazing technologies from all over the world. “Running a distribution company is really fun and we get to travel the country and the world in our quest to offer top brands and supply good quality products,” he says. “Our impact is really to offer better solutions to a market flooded with ‘cheap and nasty’. Our clients know that our brands are quality Japanese items, manufactured to last and to be accurate. This is key when dealing with optical fibre.” IC Logistix aims for excellence and is synonymous with quality, with brands that are leaders worldwide and are very high-end in a niche market.

By offering the best brands and excellent after-sales service, the company guarantees the integrity that inspires trust from its customers. Customers can be sure IC Logistix will bend over backwards to accommodate their needs and save them money. Presently the company’s key focus is the telecommunications market, as its primary products are used in the fibre-optic industry. Offering a full turnkey solution in the installation and maintenance of optical fibre, the range of products on offer includes Fujikura arc-fusion splicing machines, AFL optical test and certification equipment, and Plumett blowing/floating machines.

Customers hold IC Logistix in high regard for its professional service, highly knowledgeable staff who are keen to assist, and for its integrity – a rare characteristic in this day and age. “We will continue to grow into other technology related products, while always remaining committed to distributing top-end products and offering top-end after-sales service. One thing is for sure: we will be around, and we will prosper, because our focus is on people, quality and integrity.

We cherish our loyal staff and every customer. It is an honour to serve the people of our nation with true quality,” Yacumakis says.
