About us

Fotacs has grown considerably in the last 14 years. Having started with 2 people in a tiny little warehouse in Kya-Sands carrying 3 brands, they are now in a large double warehouse in Centurion with national sales staff and over 10 brands...In 2001 Larry Codd started Fotacs with Cosina and Armsun. It wasn't long before Voigtlander was added to the Fotacs portfolio. With over 46 years of experience in the photo trade Larry soon proved that he was dependable and honorable - and his business was sowing the rewards. Thanks to a long, and good, relationship with Anne Lee since the inception of Vanguard in 1986 Anne appointed Fotacs the sole distributors of Vanguard for South Africa in 2002. The Vanguard brand has grown in South Africa to a recognised name in not only photo video but also in optics and now also in the hunting industry. They started with a mere 2 containers per annum, to now almost 10 containers per year! Over time the company grew, added several staff members with a national sales coverage, including Botswana, Namibia & Swaziland and many more brands like Photon, Romen, Jyc, Haida and Polaris. They enjoyed a short relationship with Silicon Power, and Brilliant and till recently distributed Minox for three years. Branching into the Outdoor and Hunting industries they added Schletek and Istor to compliment the ranges to meet the needs of South African shoppers. Collectively the members of Fotacs have over 100 years photo experience and over 27 years of outdoor, hunting knowledge. Striving always to stay on trend and to provide great service and, always, Great reliable products. Good products with great back-up from a team of driven staff means happy customers.
