Our people from left to right: François, Lee & Zania

Optronics Africa CC was started in November 2006 by François and Zania Collin who had until then been employed full-time by François’ other business, FC LogCon.

Because FC LogCon is a specialist in logistic support and consultancy services, they felt that it would be better for both the clients and the business, if they were to create a separate entity that could concentrate solely on the marketing and selling of high-end optronics technology.

The specific goals of Optronics Africa would be to identify suitable high-end products, source them for importation, and distribute them within the South African market.

With this in mind, François visited several potential suppliers in Europe, during 2007 and 2008, and he started putting together a product and supplier portfolio to address the various needs of the Southern African market.  In May 2009, after a business visit to Europe, François decided that these needs would be more adequately addressed if a range of RF products were added to complement the growing optronic product range.

In August 2009, Lee Annamalai joined Optronics Africa and he brought with him some revolutionary new ideas that will change the way Optronics Africa operates.  Lee has spent several years stimulating R&D efforts and innovation within the South African R&D space.  He has insight into many of the indigenous cutting edge innovations that have the potential to make an impact both locally and globally.

At the forefront of Lee’s ideas, is the aim of bringing South African developed products and innovations to the Global Market, while still sourcing the best international technology for distribution within Southern Africa.
