Actom Protection and Control has set up a prepayment meter factory at its Knights, Germiston, premises in line with the latest national regulations governing local content requirements for key industrial products. Residential prepayment meters and smart meters are included among many categories of equipment recently designated by the Department of Trade & Industry (DTI) as requiring a minimum 70% and 50% local content respectively to be eligible for sale and supply to SOE’s and other organs of state, including many municipalities. The establishment of the local production facility, operating since March this year, enables the business unit to meet the DTI’s local content conditions applying to prepayment meters. The company produces and assembles the equipment under licence to its technology partner Holley Technology, an international manufacturer and supplier of metering systems. The items produced in the new factory comprise prepayment meters, smart prepayment meters and customer interface units (CIUs).
