Company Background

Workshop Electronics CC was established in March 1982 with two members, after Robert. Bosch South Africa asked them to take over the countrywide servicing of all Bosch workshop equipment for their own account, and of course with their full backing. In 1988 they were asked to look into the possibility of designing and building a local brake tester that would comply with S.A.B.S requirements, and be competitive with the other suppliers price-wise. This was done, and in October 1988 the first machine was installed at Pretoria Municipality testing station. This machine was used by the S.A.B.S to test against CKS 589-1983, and passed first time round.

A total number of 1800 brake testers have until now been supplied and we have also converted many of our competitor’s machines. Approximately the same numbers of scuff gauges and also 1500 pit jack sets have also been supplied. We have built 1200 axle play detectors, which are still in use. We are focused on after sales service, as we know from experience, how the lack of decent services has negatively affected our competition. This is the one area we will not neglect, to strive to be the best in. We have a staff compliment of 56 people and also own a mortgage free, 6 000 square meter factory. This establishment proves our long term planning to provide quality products and service. We have fully equipped service centres in Cape Town, Namibia and Kwa-Zulu Natal as well as in Gauteng, Free State. We fully adhere to all SADC’S Agreements and development programs and have various technicians who commenced as labourers and who have after training enhanced their knowledge to such an extent that they are now competent technicians. We strive to support BEE initiative and have subsequently, proudly appointed members to our workforce, achieving level 2 status.

During 1998 three companies amalgamated to become a major force in the motor vehicle testing industry and the company was trading under the following names: 
     (a) Van der Nest//Buys and Associates
     (b) Workshop Electronics CC
     (c) Millibrakes with Mr. JJ van der Nest as the controlling member of the companies.

Today it is trading as: Workshop Electronics PTY (Ltd). The owner Mr. Van Der Nest, has also been appointed, during 2010 by the European union, to introduce corrective measures at all axle load Control Centers in Malawi and also later, administered similar work in Swaziland and Kenya, where he educated the Public and trained all Law Enforcement personnel. He also assisted their Countries to standardize their permissible weight restrictions and is in the process to install New Weighbridges in Kenya. He was also appointed by SGS the world’s largest testing and verification Company as their Automotive Consultant and the two Companies are now working together to provide independent Law Enforcement services to many Countries in Africa.
