Barrett Electronics (PVT) LTD

Company profile

Barrett Electronics was registered in 1987 as a small electronics manufacturing and repairs business and in 1993 the company undertook for the first time in Zimbabwe, local manufacture of electric fence energizers and auxiliary products, all of which had been previously imported.

Expansion, quality control aspects, and thus reliability in this competitive business has seen this company become the dominant player in electronic fencing regionally, with the peace of mind for the customer that instant back up service is always available. In 1994 the company became involved in the installation of its products, undertaking electric game fencing, farm security fencing and pioneering wall–top security electric fencing in the country.

The company’s flexibility, innovativeness and research and development have led to continuous advances in all these fields, guaranteeing the company’s leading position.

This dynamism, coupled with incomparable back up service, guarantees the company’s lead in its major speciality, “electrified and alarmed security fencing”. The thousands of domestic, industrial and commercial fences installed by Barrett Electronics have resulted in the company becoming a trusted household name.

Patented developments have included up to 60km electric fence energizers with 10 000 volt pulse protection, “ through pole insulation”, compact energizers with built in chargers, alarms, lightning protectors and back up batteries, solar panel charged energizers and security cages for all these electronics assuring the customer specifications can always be met.

A company policy that has always given it its core strength is that all materials and units used in these installations be manufactured locally as far as possible, with the Electronic Manufacturing, Engineering and Installation Branches providing much needed employment. This has also allowed a skills transfer to many local indigenous sector companies. Also while quality has always been uncompromising, competitive pricing and an excellent service record continues to guarantee its leading role.

The company’s fairly small size and departments afore mentioned renders itself to flexibility assuring its customers can enjoy a unique requirement.

Further developments and expansion through the years has realized a diversification into standard un electrified fencing in all forms including razor wire installations, security and palisade fencing, electric gates, egg incubators, portable hunting camp electric fencing, solar lighting and solar powered electric fencing, resulting in an expertly run security company under one roof.

From large scale fencing projects of 160 km to urban wall top electric fencing, from working with USAID and the European Union, from mining sector to game fencing and from rural community protection to commercial farm protection, Barrett Electronics experience is second to none.

On site maintenance training, permanent in house site representation and an unprecedented commitment to quality and user friendly security fencing can save your company fortunes.
