The late John Farrell is the man behind the registration of Electrocomps. He did so in 1980, the target being revamping the distribution of electronic components to smaller markets. He was not put off by the presence of another 12 distributors, which were already operating in the country.
What started from tiny premises of 50 m2 would soon burst into a semi shop before clinching a growing status of a stocking distributor. This occasioned the need to have a corporate office, and the company chooses Johannesburg, South Africa.
Electrocomps has over 500,000 products, both industrial and electronics, serving over 1 million customers across the world. They support maintenance engineers, machine and panel builders, buyers, and electronics design engineers.
The company’s vision is being the first choice for its customers. This is enforced through innovation and harnessing of digital expertise. It has strategic priorities, which have kept on top of the industry. The market listing of Electrocomps is on the LSE market.
