11 December 2012 – South African power cable manufacturer Aberdare Cables, a Powertech company within the JSE-listed Altron group, has entered into an agreement with Jasco to package and supply the Snapper product range to distributors throughout South Africa.

These products include three-pin electrical plugs and adapters and are manufactured by Jasco. The distribution agreement also covers multiplugs and extensions comprising of a three pin plug with a three, five or 10 metre power cable and a double plug socket.

A widely recognised brand, the Snapper range of three-pin plugs and adapters is available in a choice of colours, including blue, orange, yellow, white and clear. These products comply to the SABS standards (SANS IEC 60884). Aberdare’s Snapper brand manager Richard Cockshott says the Aberdare infrastructure in South Africa provides a solid, wide-reaching platform for the marketing and distribution of the Snapper range.

"There is limited local manufacture of electrical plugs in South Africa and much of the requirement is imported.  Aberdare’s national footprint will ensure broad distribution of the products to the distributors that supply to hardware, electrical and other stores countrywide."  

"Jasco is one of our preferred customers. We are working together to capture more of the retail market and multibrands,"Chad Andrews,executive director: sales and distribution, says.
