Founded in the 1980’s by Gerald Shap, in response to South Africa’s growing demand for photographic film, Tudortech (formerly Tudor Photographic) had it’s humble beginnings in an office in Cape Town. As its film business grew, Tudortech expanded and was successful in winning the sole distribution rights to Japanese lens icon, SIGMA. In 1994, Gary Shap joined the business and began growing Tudortech nationwide. In 2000, as the digital photo revolution began to take hold, Tudortech won the rights to distribute the global leader in flash memory solutions, SANDISK. From that day on there was no looking back as Tudortech expanded it’s operations into the mobile, mass retail and IT channels. Tudortech continued to expand through innovation and success in sales and marketing that attracted the interest of world famous German camera and binocular manufacturer LEICA. Japanese camera manufacturer OLYMPUS soon followed. In 2011, with it’s reach now extending to over 5000 retail stores, Tudortech was approached by US Consumer Electronic Accessory giant BELKIN to expand their business in Africa.
In 2014 the surge in mobile product category and the growth in the outdoor and adventure industry saw us expand our portfolio to the leading US cellular case and protection brands Otterbox and Lifeproof.
We are proud to announce that as of December 2015 we welcome Dyson, one of the world’s premium technology brands, to our company as their exclusive distribution partner in South Africa.
Today, Tudortech employs close to 100 people and operates out of two main offices in Cape Town and Johannesburg. As a retail and channel specialist that enjoys outstanding relationships with major independent, mass retail, mobile and IT groups in South Africa, Tudortech offers considerable expertise and local knowledge in the art of sales, merchandising, marketing, logistics and distribution.
