TRX Electronics company profile

14 September 2011 News

TRX Electronics was founded in 1996 by Frank Schneider who was doing contract work at the time and found a need to import critical and uncommon electronic components.

In 2000 there was an opportunity to cooperate with TTI, a broad line supplier of passive components from renowned manufacturers. Frank’s wife, Pat, with years of experience in component sales, joined him to take over the day to day running of the business. At first, it started as a home office, then evolved to the proverbial office built on top of the garage. The business soon outgrew its premises and moved into a house in Erasmuskloof, near the N1 Rigel Avenue off ramp.

TRX Electronics’ stated vision is to grow the company year by year and to gain market share. The company’s long term success in a competitive market is based on its highly professional team of employees where service is top priority. Its focus remains on passive components, with the main supplier being TTI with its massive stock located in Texas and in Munich.

TRX receives weekly consolidated shipments, which means it can usually deliver within seven to 10 days. Deliveries are made directly or by courier. The company endeavours to provide quality service to its customers, including importing from well known overseas distributors. In this way it saves customers the hassles of pre-payments by credit card, customs issues, high shipping costs etc.

The company currently has a staff of 11, of which one is based in Cape Town.
