Forbatt SA invests in South Africa’s security industry

Issue 7 2020 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Forbatt SA has been supplying products and support to the South African security industry since 1996. As the country emerges from the COVID-19 lockdown, the company has demonstrated its faith in the future of the South African economy by setting itself up to offer an improved service to the industry by making sure it has the products and solutions the industry needs. It has also launched a new showroom where customers will be able to experience hands-on demonstrations of its solutions.

Just as the company expanded from supplying the latest battery technology into CCTV solutions, over the years it also included other security systems, such as management platforms and access control, as well as a large range of accessories.

The year 2020 will see a major change in the way Forbatt SA operates with the launch of its new warehouse operation in Lanseria, Johannesburg. The new premises is larger and more modern, allowing the company to hold and support more products.

Within the new premises, Forbatt SA has also built a new showroom, at a cost of R2,5 million. The showroom will allow staff to demonstrate products and solutions to its clients, even building demonstrations aimed at solving specific project requirements to prove its systems can meet the most stringent demands.

In an era where load shedding is expected to be worse than ever before, the company is also ensuring its energy business is geared to serve all verticals, including security, enabling critical operations to continue when Eskom can’t. The energy solutions customers will be able to acquire include traditional batteries, UPS solutions, solar options and a host of associated electronic components.

Leading Forbatt SA into the new era, Johnson Fang says the company will also be increasing its staff complement to reinforce its commitment to delivering the best customer service in the industry.

While its range of products will expand over time, the current Tier-1 brands the company offers include Flir, NUUO, Kedacom and TVT in the surveillance sector, as well as IDEMIA in the access control and identity management market.

The expansion to Lanseria has been met with overwhelming support from employees who support the move and the company’s commitment to the local market.
