 Our Story

 From humble beginnings in a small converted house in Lakeview, Booysens, David van den Berg had a vision to deliver high quality products to the Southern African market. With just one assistant, he launched ElectroMechanica with the introduction of the Lovato and Finder Brands.

It was a success, demand began to grow and along with it, the company as well as our range of products and brands expanded. We were also able to establish Electrodev, a subsidiary dedicated to the local design, development and manufacture of products for our lines.

With the overwhelming support of our loyal client base we expanded operations, opening branches in both KZN and Cape Town. Over the years we have continued to introduce new products, even prompting change and development in local sectors and industries.

Eventually in 2008, having grown in size we once again moved, this time to our own purpose built Head Office in Ormonde, Gauteng. With a bigger warehouse, better dispatch department, larger sales and showroom facilities, a 75-seater auditorium and an entertainment area; the move that has helped us entrench our name as a market leader.

Today, we are among the top five distributors worldwide of Lovato and Finder, in addition to representing over 40 leading brands from across the world. We remain passionate about customer service, keeping our promise to always put our clients first, and to provide them with only the highest quality products and brands.
