Electrocomp - your 'Partner in South Africa'

16 Feb 2000 News

Electrocomp is a well-respected, recognised market leader in the distribution of electronic components. Electrocomp was specifically origi- nated to serve the needs of the South African customer and the company says that every effort is made to continually evolve to meet those needs more efficiently and cost effectively. As they put it: "We work with you, as a team, so that you can be assured that we are not just another supplier, but we are your 'Partner in South Africa'."

Electrocomp says that its sales and support professionals' main focus is to provide a complete service, offer competitive prices and prompt delivery of components, when and where its clients need them. The company has at its disposal technical advisors who are available to extend any needed assistance, provide data and literature as required, locate needed samples and offer up-to-date market information.

Electrocomp is a company with a long history. It says that having a clear philosophy and direction for the future that it continually updates in an ever-changing industry, it effectively targets a common goal - the cost effective supply of components when you need them!

Transtronics

Transtronics was formed in 1986 as an out-sourcing contract manufacturer by the Electrocomp management. As the electronic components sales organisation, Electrocomp recognised the need for value- added services to be offered to its customers. Although Transtronics' initial expertise was in ferrite transformer and choke assembly, it soon diversified into printed circuit board assembly and later into harness and cable technology. The latter business was purchased as a complete operation from Molex South Africa ensuring an international level of expertise.

As part of the Electrocomp Group, Transtronics enjoys a major advantage in its ability to offer competitive component prices. Transtronics is divided into three sections: transformer section; PCB populating section; and the harness/cable section.

Electrocomp has branches in major cities in South Africa: Johannesburg is the head office, the others are Durban, Pretoria and Cape Town.
