We pride ourselves on being one of South Africa’s leading electrical wholesalers for the finest electrical products and services. Founded in 1964 and still growing, our mission includes providing Southern Africa with the best supplies available both locally and internationally. We have trusted, expert advice and solutions and an extensive product inventory consisting of both well-known local and leading international brands.

Our extensive offering includes solutions to all things relating to power generation, renewable energy and commercial and industrial lighting.  Voltex does it all – If you or your business needs solar and electrical supplies, expert advice or tailor-made solutions, there’s no doubt we have the perfect solution for you.


An increase in demand for environmentally sustainable energy solutions has been driven by a consciousness of the environment and a need for greener, more sustainable energy alternatives.

Solar power is without a doubt the most sustainable, clean and reliable form of renewable energy that can be used in several forms to help power your home or business.

We have a wide selection of solar products from reputable brands available to meet the requirements of any solution including but not limited to domestic and commercial solutions.


Our distribution network is vast, with over 54 individual branches strategically located within South Africa. Our reach allows us to effectively service the agricultural, mining, manufacturing, construction, wholesale, electrical and communication sectors with ease. No project is too big or small for our services and quality products.

For added convenience, Voltex now also offers a ‘click and collect’ service from selected branches through the Voltex website and Voltex App.


Voltex has recently initiated an
exciting venture to introduce a fresh model of stores, designed to offer
customers a retail experience where they can interact with products firsthand.
Although still in the early stages, this project has already proven to be a
resounding success, garnering positive feedback from our valued customers.
