At its head office in Edenvale, there are 3 manufacturing workshops. The electronics workshop produces plug-in timers and relays.

The panel workshop produces PFC systems, pump starters, MCCs, DBs, automatic changeover switches (ATS & AMF) and automation control systems with PLC, drives and telemetry. It has an estimating and engineering team to oversee stock and custom products production. AC/DC Dynamics markets to specifiers, consulting engineers and architects, pulling back to distribute its products through OEMs, Franchises and electrical wholesalers throughout Southern Africa.
70 of the leading electrical wholesalers are appointed as official Distributors who keep stock and have trained staff to support AC/DC Dynamics products. End users, electrical contractors and small OEMSs are referred to Franchises or Official Distributors, foot print permitting. This places AC/DC Dynamics products within easy reach of anyone in Southern Africa. AC/DC Dynamics products are specified in projects ranging from stadiums to mines, hotels to homes and from farms to breweries.
AC/DC Dynamics continues to develop its distribution footprint of Franchises in Southern Africa. A Franchise is an independently owned electrical wholesaler whose products are primarily sourced from AC/DC Dynamics and trades with the brand AC/DC Express. AC/DC Dynamics further supports these franchises through the AC/DC Express company, in that it provides its business model for implementation, as well as administrative and marketing support. One of the focused directions for AC/DC Dynamics is going “green” with the company offering an extensive range of power saving products, including LED lighting, plus alternative and hybrid power supply systems with on and off-grid solutions, combining Solar PV and wind generators with mains electricity and conventional diesel and petrol back-up generators.
Solar water heating systems supplied by AC/DC Dynamics are also an important part of this initiative. The company is committed to providing fast, efficient and friendly service. Internal systems are constantly evaluated and upgraded where needed, always keeping in mind, that the end goal is to make life easier for customers. The company provides national sales and technical call centres. Orders and enquiries may be processed through this website, as well as viewing copies of invoices, credit notes and POD’s. AC/DC Dynamics has also implemented a sign-on-glass system in a bid to remove any unnecessary paperwork from the order process.
AC/DC Dynamics is proud of its Apprentice school, an initiative that is run once every two years. The two year apprenticeships trains electricians, electronic mechanicians and armature winders. One of the company’s many strengths is its’ catalogue, which is widely recognised as a benchmark in the electrical industry.
