Appliance Components trades within the competitive global market and employs over 200 people to manufacture high quality SABS approved Satchwell elements, controls, Solar flat plate collectors and recently a Low Pressure polymer Geyser for low cost housing.
However, where the market demands a low-priced alternative, Appliance Components imports a quality Heatwave(space)product, supplied by carefully selected and contracted manufacturers under stringent quality assurance via our Satchwell-China office. Appliance Components has also entered the appliance spares market, mainly focusing on the refrigeration and cooling industry. Within a short period, we have established ourselves as a leading importer of related components.
