Payphone telecommunications and booths
Remkor’s origins in manufacturing are based in the automotive sector of the 1980s, a sector which it still operates in today. In the pursuit of growth and diversification prospects, the company realised the opportunity enter the telecommunication market through the manufacturing of payphone products, including payphone booths, and was awarded a contract to supply Telkom South Africa (South African fixed line operator) with payphone booths.
This in turn allowed the company to play on the global stage by exporting its products to over 20 countries, which included market-leading products such as the fully integrated solar-powered payphone booth solution, which allowed for truly wireless communication in a cost-effective and secure package.
As a result, over 75,000 of Remkor’s products can be found at customers around the world. Naturally with the advent of cellular technology, the market for dated public telephone declined. Remkor then changed the scope of their business and began a process of diversifying their facilities for various internationally accepted production outputs, including the domestic appliance market with extractor hoods, public seating, outdoor advertising products, and data cabinets / electrical panels, to name a few.
