To celebrate this milestone, the company is to hold celebratory events in the centres of its five branches over the period of a month, starting 16 August.

Front cover story September Major TechMajor Tech opened for business in 1992 with the intention of providing the electrical industry with innovative, high quality test and measurement instrumentation at an affordable price. In 1999 it launched its branded K-Series range of test instruments and 2005 saw the launch of its first-of-a-kind compact hand-held electrical testers with double injection mould casing. The company launched an IP67 multimeter in 2006 and in 2013 moved into its new 5600 m2 head office on Sam Green Road in Elandsfontein.

Ten years ago, Major Tech took advantage of movement in the switches market to design and develop its own VETI range of modular switches and sockets and its VETI range of MCBs, DBs and enclosures for domestic and industrial solutions. The range, launched in 2010, proved to be highly successful and as a result of the introduction of VETI dimmers, Major Tech moved naturally into LED lamps, floodlights and decorative lighting.

“In life, change is the only constant and in order to remain relevant in any industry,” says CEO Pat Shaw, “a company must be able to adapt to market needs and release new and exciting products. To do this, however, it is essential to work with the right people, and Major Tech has an outstanding team and team spirit that is pivotal to our success”.

Innovation has, therefore, always been the driving force in Major Tech and, after 25 years in business, nothing has changed.

Enter VETI 2

To mark its silver anniversary Major Tech has introduced the VETI 2 range of switches and sockets. In the ‘switch on style’ of VETI, the new range brings elegance and flair to the entry level market.

Shaw explains that it was important to Major Tech that buyers across the market had access to well-designed, affordable products of good quality. In addition, the company wanted a product that stood out from the rest. “If you go into any retail store,” says Shaw, “the switches available look very similar. We wanted something that stood out and we put a lot of thought into the design of the range”.

The IEC and SANS compliant VETI 2 range stands out.

Monoblock in design and consisting of 22 products, the range is the first in South Africa to accommodate a switched socket with one standard South African socket, two V-slim sockets and two USB ports.

Manufactured from a polycarbonate and ABS blend with easy to connect terminals, the range includes easily removable covers available in white or charcoal in an ultra slim design, to ensure they are level to the wall.

The flush design and reset style switches means they remain flat whether they are in the ‘on’ or ‘off’ position and, because of this, can be mounted horizontally or vertically to create an element of style in any home. Well designed using expensive technology, the ‘Very Easy To Install’ (VETI) range offers one to four lever one-way switches and two-way single lever switches, bell press/tactile dimmers and isolators. All switches come with a single live input and include a fluorescent locator.

There are 10 different socket outlet combinations in the VETI 2 range. These include the common single and double switched sockets, RED dedicated sockets, a shaver socket and a range of 2018 SANS 10142 compliant sockets to ensure Major Tech is ready for the change. The range additionally includes data (CAT6 speed), satellite and TV communication outlets.

To differentiate VETI 2 from the original VETI line, the packaging has been redesigned. At leading distribution outlets, VETI 2 products will be housed on vacuum formed floor and wall mounted VETI stands, which reflect the elegant, sleek design of the product ranges.
