About Switchboard Group

Switchboard Manufacturers was founded in April 1963. Subsequently Switchboard Natal, Switchboard Cape, and Bhodi Manufacturers were established.These, as well as the wholesale distribution arm viz Protective Switchgear and Eastside Electrical.
These companies, together with other acquisitions, led to the formation of the privately owned Switchboard Group. The Switchboard Group is a leading electrical group in South Africa, supplying high quality products in the low voltage sector. Indeed, we command a major share of this market. The Group operates nationally and, since the advent of the sanction free period, exports to many African countries, as well as Europe.
Quality Management has been practiced by the group for many years, and quality control is in line with recognised S.A.B.S. and international standards. In addition to our Tabula range of panels we have introduced a complete new range of Modular panel boards, motor control centres as well as Form 4 designs. These products are manufactured in accordance with SANS and IEC specifications as well as the SANS 10142-1 Code of Practice. Our panels are manufactured to SABS Standards and to this end we have obtained Test Certificates for 15, 25, 50 and 70kA. Our Tabula range, which includes fully withdrawable type MCC’s, have been successfully certified for 115kA.
The Switchboard Group’s History stands as a testament to our position as a leading electrical group in South Africa. This, alongside our experience, expertise and equipment serve to bolster that position.
