First established in 1974 as “Herholdt’s Electrical Contractors” the main focus of the business was electrification of master building projects like hospitals & libraries until 1989 when the business switched to trading as wholesaler of electrical products.
In July 2010 we decided to open a branch in Kimberley because of the growing developments in the Northern Cape. The growth in the mining industry was a key factor in making the move, but now we provide products and services to all major sectors including Water, Buildings and Industry.
Our sales staff is a key part of our business and they pride themselves in providing excellent service, technical advice and knowledge of all our products. They are kept up to date with the latest technology and attend product seminars and courses provided by leading electrical manufacturers and suppliers.
Through the years we have seen that quality products at the right price is what our customers are after. All products supplied by Herholdt’s Electrical come with a manufacturers guarantee. Our pricing is very competitive and try our best to always have stock available in both our branches.
We also have a full fleet of delivery vehicles that can cater to your deliver needs. Our Trucks are fitted with cranes for easy offloading on site when there are no forklifts available. For deliveries throughout the country we have distribution deals in place with most of the major courier and shipping companies to make sure that we can deliver overnight anywhere in South Africa from either of our branches.
Our Branch in Bloemfontein is situated in the Old Industrial Area, both our Exports and Lighting Divisions trade from the same premises of over 5400 square meters. From here we distribute to all the small towns throughout the Free State and central South African region.
In Kimberley you can find us in Albertynshof, close to the famous Kimberley Big Hole & Kimberley Convention Centre. Our warehouse of 1700 square meters ensures that we have enough stock to provide excellent service to most of the major mining companies as well as electrical contractors, distributors and hardware shops throughout the Northern Cape.
Being an electrical wholesaler situated in the Free State and Northern Cape we believe that growth in the province is essential for us to exist, that’s why we believe in local procurement when possible and supporting and developing our community, schools and local businesses.
