Dartcom - a strong believer in quality and service
16 Feb 2000, News

Dartcom was founded in 1978, by Fanie Viljoen. At this time the company focused on the communications and air transport industries. In 1992, the strategic focus was altered, when Dartcom was appointed a sole agent and distributor in South Africa and selected African countries for Huber + Suhner AG.

Huber + Suhner is the largest manufacturer of coaxial cables and connectors in Switzerland and Dartcom has built a successful business on the Huber + Suhner product range. Dartcom also represents several overseas companies who also have strategic and complementary products to Huber + Suhner.

Fanie Viljoen partnered with the CIE Group in 1997 to expand upon Dartcom's position in the market place, retaining 20% shareholding and serving as Marketing Director. CIE injected additional capital and expertise into Dartcom which has resulted in strong growth for the company.
