Webb Industries is a division of Jasco Trading (Pty) Limited, a subsidiary of Jasco Electronics Holdings Limited. The following information refers specifically to Webb Industries only.
Webb Industries specialises in TELECOMMUNICATION ANCILLARY PRODUCTS: Antennas; Duplexers; Coax Cable; Coax Connectors; GSM Repeaters; Indoor Coverage Solutions; Kitting; High Sites; Lightning Protection Systems; Towers; Masts & Rapid Deployment Solution (RDS) Model Tower Range.
Webb Industries was established in 1973 as a mast and rigging company, and until 1976 specialised in self-supporting poles, guyed lattice and self-supporting structures. In 1983 Webb Industries was acquired by Jasco and started cooperating with Jasco International which at the time was involved the military telecoms market. In 1985 Webb Industries and Jasco International merged.
In 1994 a High Sites Division was established which offered multi-operator telecoms towers to the industry on a rental basis. This coincided with the emergence of the cellular market when Africa opened their doors to the South African Network Operators. This development required the company to move from low frequency PMR to higher frequency GSM bands. The cellular market grew exponentially. Africa became a major market and higher, heavier duty masts were required to cater for the telecoms and data traffic. Webb Industries became and remains to this day the leading and largest supplier of RF ancillary equipment in Sub Saharan Africa.
Webb Industries comprises the following divisions:
1. Radiation Systems (Radsys)
3. Masts & Towers
4. Projects IBS/DAS
5. Hi-Site Development & Management
