iST boasts a dedicated and energetic team of professionals that pursue opportunities where solutions and services can bring significant revenue, cost containment, productivity and performance gains to customers.
Our team comprises engineers from various disciplines, industry experts and technology specialists that work with business development and project execution teams alike. We do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach and will always consider your specific needs, from conceptualisation through to implementation and operation.
We operate in various industry verticals and offer a variety of technologies and solutions in different marketplaces. The technologies that we offer mostly come from partnerships with leading international partners and OEMs, whilst some of our technologies have been developed in-house and we are proud to see them perform. We apply these technologies and our specialised experience in certain industry verticals allowing us to conceive, design and develop solutions that will make a difference in your business.
Value realisation and verification is very important to us. We aim to confirm the benefit of what we do and this allows us to grow and improve.
We serve customers in different market sectors such as power electronics and utility sectors, mining, industrial and commercial firms in South and sub-Saharan Africa and on other continents.
Powertech System Integrators (Pty) Ltd (“PTSI”) was acquired by the EOH group as a subsidiary of EOH Industrial Technologies (Pty) Ltd, effective 1 August 2017. EOH’s substantial footprint in South Africa, and expanding presence on the African continent and in other global markets, combined with its dedication to the development and growth of those markets, make us confident and optimistic about the prospects this venture holds for our business. EOH’s commitment to entrepreneurship and service, through technology and people, resonates with our own strategy and we see exciting growth prospects for our business and people.
We are part of the EOH group but remain directly accountable for our own business and reputation. This provides the opportunity to reposition our business and we have accordingly decided to return to the IST brand. As of 8 January 2018, our company name has changed from Powertech System Integrators (Pty) Ltd (PTSI) to Integrators of Systems Technology (Pty) Ltd (IST). We believe that the IST name carries significant credibility in our market and speaks to our objectives to integrate, solve, together.
To continue to be a leader in our field, we have to facilitate the creation and ensure retention, of skills in the niche sectors in which we operate. We are active in market sectors that require professionals with a high level of skills and experience.
We believe that the optimal combination of staff experience and expertise, innovation and market-leading technology makes us the successful business that we are. We believe that our employees should achieve personal fulfilment, wellness and growth within a winning culture.
