The History Of RayCAPE
RayCAPE was established in 2003, to service the telecommunications industry in the Western and Eastern Cape. Our founding members who were previously employed by Raytech Telecommunications resorted to establishing a company due to restructuring, with the aim of servicing the market left by Raytech, which decided to centralise operations from its head office based in Johannesburg.
Keeping in line with Black Economic Empowerment trends, the RayCAPE board consists of four shareholders of which majority shareholding is owned by Mr Koos Louw and Mr Martin Deelman and the balance to Mr Angus Bain and Mr Paul Gonsalves. Of utmost importance is the need to transfer skills, create jobs and allow for growth in economic development. In agreement with Raytech Telecommunications, RayCAPE is the sole distributor of Tyco Electronics Raychem Telecommunication products and its accessories in the South West and Eastern region of South Africa.
In addition, geared for expansion, RayCAPE is also a service provider in the civil and construction sectors for the ICT Industry. Our highly skilled personnel are equipped to manage large-scale outside plant projects. Based in Cape Town, the border of operation extends from Port St Johns in the East to Beaufort West and Alexander Bay in the North Western Cape. As a young company, RayCAPE has already obtained distributorship for the AMP Netconnect product range directly from Tyco Electronics, allowing the company total import control with a world-renowned product in a highly competitive data market.
Network system components for voice and data networks as well as top-quality service in civil and construction outside plant projects.
