Our Roots

RS Electrical and Lighting Agencies is a leading distributor of electrical and lighting products in the Western Cape. The company was established in 1979 with the vision to become local agents for a few local manufacturers. Today, we are partnered with a number of world renowned brands such as Philips, Gewiss, General Electric and Vossloh Schwabe, as well as a number of local manufacturers. Our product ranges, our supply locus and the number of sectors we serve has grown drastically over the years.

Supplier Offering

The market in the Western Cape is a vital contributor to the South African economy. It does not always make business sense for large manufactures to own their own distribution and sales channels in every market. RS Electrical and Lighting Agencies serve as an access point to the Western Cape market, as well as the rest of South Africa. We buy, market and distribute goods to the resale market. By partnering with us, our suppliers gain access and knowledge to a market we have spent years building relationships in. We can also greatly reduce your risk portfolio as we take ownership and stock of all products we sell.

Our Core Values

Customer Satisfaction

We are dedicated to going above and beyond for our customers. Customer satisfaction is at the forefront of our business.

Knowledge and Experience

We keep our ears to the ground. We listen, learn and share.

Integrity and Trust

We are dedicated to doing the right thing, upholding honest practices and straightforward dealings with our stakeholders.
