About us

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.

Faradays Electrical PTY Ltd expanded; doing all types of electrical installations as well as public address systems.

It operated from a shop in Lower Main Road, Observatory, also selling radios and various spares.

His son, Allan, joined in 1976 and took over the running of the business in August 1983. He is presently still 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.

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 electrical and data installations.
