Communica named as one of the Top 300 BEE companies

6 October 2004 News

Communica, the South African broadline distributor, has been named as one of the TOP 300 BEE companies in the electronics sector.

"This is a very exciting year for Communica. It is indeed a great honour that our efforts have been rewarded with this wonderful accolade," enthuses CEO Shabier Shaboddin. "We have worked very hard to provide our customers with the highest level of service and on-time-availability of the widest range of top brand electronic components and equipment while at the same time have not lost sight of our social responsibility. We humbly thank those that selected Communica for this award. This further inspires us to consistently strive to improve in all areas of activity."

For the past 27 years, Communica has been supplying the industry a range of branded and quality products and has become a household name among the leading buyers in this industry. Situated in the three major centres - Pretoria (head office), Johannesburg and Cape Town - Communica's policy has always been one of accessibility to customers, both large and small. "To this end each branch has been structured with a large retail store, as well as a full time telephone sales department and a number of external sales persons," adds Shaboddin.

"Customers may visit our stores and browse around at the myriad of products on display and purchase anything in small quantities. This has worked very well for students, hobbyists and even engineers at the development stage. For larger enquiries the busy buyer or engineer who cannot come in has a number of options of placing orders: telephone, fax or e-mail," he adds.

Communica will occupy new premises at Samrand towards the end of the year and will be fully ISO compliant. All distribution will be done from this hub whilst still maintaining small satellite stores in Johannesburg and Pretoria for customer convenience. The company offers a free daily road delivery service at all branches within their areas. The Communica website (www.communica.co.za) will be fully interactive shortly, and the company intends this to be a most valuable source of technical information as well as an order entry terminal for customers.
