Vision and Mission

Alcom Radio Distributors (Pty) Limited has been operating independent of Alcom System (Pty) Limited since 1995, prior to this time a single company under the name of Alcom Systems provided product and service across the entire spectrum of radio communication user needs. The purpose of this separation was to focus on the bulk user and dealer network markets, while simultaneously reducing overhead and ultimately cost to the end user. Alcom Radio Distributors has become a finely tuned vehicle successfully fulfilling the goal of providing the best quality product and the most reasonable prices while at the same time being supported by the financial strength of Altech and the unquestioned engineering skills and capability of Alcom Systems. The Alcom companies, previously operating as Motorola South Africa, have collectively been operating in South Africa for over thirty six years.
