A global pandemic, nationwide lockdown, mandatory masks, a global recession and President Donald Trump being voted out of the White House – and that was just the tip of the iceberg for 2020. And as the year draws to a close and we reflect on the interactions we have had with our partners and clients, despite the challenges the year brought, we have strengthened relationships, streamlined processes and continued to grow our presence as South Africa’s OEM of choice.
At CZ Electronics, we keep our interaction with our clients and partners as simple as possible. We have minimised the paperwork and implemented seamless processes that govern the creation of our products – from idea to the end-user experience. We believe in giving our clients direct points of contact with top management at CZ Electronics. And this open-door policy is one of the differentiators that we believe truly made us stand out in a year where communication was everything.
Products for Africa
Throughout the year, we have added several new products to our catalogue. Possibly the most notable this year is the Elsys Smarty Android TV Dongle, which is now available at several leading retailers throughout South Africa. This affordable, compact product has made smart TV accessible to a wider audience. The plug and play device turns any TV with an HDMI port into an Android smart TV.
As lockdown levels eased this year, CZ Electronics continued to expand our offering into more SADC countries, as the free trade agreement facilitates ease of trade in the region and the bulk of our products are compliant in terms of regulations. In 2021, we aim to continue our mission to provide electronic components for a wide variety of uses throughout the continent, potentially creating more jobs following the effects of the pandemic and supporting African business and entrepreneurship.
Empowering a nation
At CZ Electronics, we are proud of having built a culture that is inclusive and collaborative. We believe in creating sustainable employment and growth opportunities for all South Africans in the interest of empowerment and economic growth when it is most needed. We remain driven by the concept of partnership – not only with our clients but also with our staff, who are the lifeblood of our business.
Truly collaborative environments build the foundations of progress. They foster forward thinking as new ideas are born in free-flowing conversation. This is the kind of environment we aim to cultivate at CZ Electronics, as we move towards a future that is more connected by technology than ever before. Here’s to 2021 and beyond.
