Who we areForbatt SA is the sole agent for energy products, video surveillance technology, security peripherals and home automation. Our focus is solutions that give the end user the best of all worlds. Our key brands include KEDACOM, Sunell, TVT and Forbatt Batteries. We import exclusively for our network of distributors.
Bringing the best together
The speed of technological change has brought us to the realisation that there is no longer a one-size-fits all solution in just about any industry. Case in point - The automotive industry. It is common practice for major players to buy out the competition and then mix and match engines, chassis, suspension systems etc. for an improved or more efficient solution. A classic example in the world of Motorsports is Formula 1 racing. McLaren will dabble with Honda engines to find the intended solutions don’t quite work as expected and on the other hand Red Bull will team up with Renault engines, hit a winning streak until Mercedes Benz has a better solution and so on. The point is the Surveillance industry is no exception. Some solutions end up not achieving the intended results and others send you on a winning streak.
Forbatt SA has been in the industry for many years watching the trends and putting plans in place to solve the “solutions dilemma”. Forbatt SA was and still is the sole agent for Sunell Security. In keeping with the above analogy Forbatt SA very early on recognised a market gap – CHOICE! Choice that allowed manufacturers to put their best forward for the winning solution and solutions that gave the end user the best of the best. This led to Forbatt SA’s expansion of the agencies to focus on the best possible solutions and a winning streak for the entire value chain from the distributors to the end users.
THE NICHE MARKET SOLUTION
Forbatt SA’s brand now includes one of the leading global mobile surveillance security and niche surveillance manufacturers KEDACOM. KEDACOM are one of the largest manufacturers in the surveillance sector and their solutions include the very popular body worn camera, the mobile camera, and the impressive mobile NVR. These are just a few of their exceptional products.
THE AESTHEIC CONSCIOUS SOLUTION
A locally well-known brand under the Forbatt SA agency is Sunell. When it comes to aesthetics no one does it better. Sunell are not just about impressive function, they take form just as seriously. Sunell are one of the few manufacturers’ that focus on enhancing the ambiance of the space they occupy, a welcome change by property developers in upmarket projects.
