Our Story

Faradays Electrical (PTY) Ltd was established in Cape Town on the 22 November 1945. Michael Hurwitz bought into this company in May of 1953 and the name was changed to Faradays Radio and Electrical Engineers (PTY) Ltd.

From here we expanded; doing all types of electrical installations as well as public address systems.
Faradays operated from a shop in Lower Main Road, Observatory, selling radios and various spares.

His son, Allan, joined in 1976 and took over the running of the business in August 1983. Allan is still currently involved in the day-to-day operation of the business.
Over time, Faradays Electrical has opened branches, firstly in Johannesburg, headed by Danny Talhami and later in Durban, Port Elizabeth and now in Mossel Bay. Branches are now headed by our GM Jaun Hoffmann 

The company has also contracted selected persons to represent us in smaller towns making us truly national.

We have been of service to the Pick n Pay group since their inception, specializing in their point of sale and computer installations. We have been involved in most of their store refurbishments and new store developments country wide supplying all electrical and data installations.

Our hearts beat with compassion
Our Approach

We passionately believe in supporting charities to make a genuine difference in the lives of those in need.

Our hearts beat with compassion, extending our care from animals to humans. Every single act of support, no matter its scale, acts as a powerful catalyst for positive change. It encapsulates the essence of our shared humanity—kindness and generosity flowing from one heart to another. We firmly believe that each contribution, no matter how modest, echoes our commitment to creating a world where empathy and support thrive, uplifting every life they touch.

Faradays Electrical maintains strict health and safety standards on all our projects. 

All staff are fully trained and aware of health and safety protocol. We have a quality assurance policy and do regular site inspections to ensure that all installations comply with the required regulations, including the SANS (South African National Standard) 10142 Code of Practice for the wiring of premises (as amended in 2008); and the Occupational Health and Safety Act No. 85 of 1993.

Training imageWe are committed to an education and training program for our staff in which we utilize the training facilities provided for by the ECA combined with in- house training. We are continuously sending our employees (Mostly “Previously disadvantaged”) on training courses with a view to advancement within the company and we are in the process of undertaking a in- house workshop for the staff, with a view of encouraging an interest in management and administrative functions of a contracting and serviced based company i.e. Senior/project management, costing and site control.
