Northern Telecom was established in 1981 as a PABX and telecommunication company and was virtually one of the first PABX dealers to receive a license to maintain and operate private PABX’s in South Africa. (All previous licenses were to manufactures and 1st tier suppliers.)

Right from the start it was Northern Telecom’s ambition to supply clients with the highest level of back up service and professional skills. In order to achieve this goal, Northern Telecom only aligned itself with leading brand suppliers. In this way the products Northern Telecom brought to the market were guaranteed to offer clients the best available solution. For this reason Northern Telecom decided to join the Plessey dealer network and on more than one occasion were honored by Plessey for our outstanding success.

Having successfully dominated the private PABX industry in the Northern Province (Northern Telecom remains the dominant force in this region) it was decided in 1994 to open offices in the Western Cape. Two offices now operate in this region. The Northern Telecom office based in Bellville houses a sales and marketing team and is also the home to our technical support crew. Jatan Telecom, based in Stellenbosch, is a sister company primarily focused on the sales and marketing of Northern Telecom products and services.

In 1998 Dimension Data bought out Plessey, and therefore required a Dealer Network. This immediately gave Northern Telecom the ability to broaden our horizons by having access to Dimension Data’s traditional products, and in this new age of converged communications has become essential. The strength of belonging to a powerful dealer network allows Northern Telecom to leverage volume purchasing discounts from suppliers, and gives us the ability to support products sold anywhere in South Africa, and across most of the African continent.

To date Northern Telecom has installed in excess of 6 000 fully equipped PABX systems, which are supported from offices in Polokwane, Stellenbosch, Bellville, Bela-Bela, Tzaneen and Phalaborwa. Northern Telecom employs a staff compliment of over 100 employees in these offices.
