Cox & McKay
Electrical Engineering (Pty) Ltd was founded in 1964 by Jimmy McKay
and Arthur Cox. The original charter of the company was to design
and supply cable accessories to mining, utilities and railways.
Today Cox & McKay is still a leading supplier of cable
accessories to the mining and utilities markets with contracts being
held from Anglogold, Goldfields, DRD, Northam Platinum, De Beers,
Harmony Gold and Anglo Operations as well as Ekurhuleni and Tshwane
Cox & McKay are the leading 3M South Africa Distributor of
Electrical Products as well as Stone Stamcor lugs and ferrules
Cembre Crimping Tools and REPL Heatshrink Products.
Cox & McKay are one of the few distributors able to offer
training and technical backup with emergency service on weekends and
after hours. Large stocks of accessories are held which means
service levels are maintained at the optimum levels.
In 2003 Cox & McKay Electrical heeded the call of the majority of
our customers in altering our company profile to that of a BEEE. The
strategy we adopted was that of empowerment and not enrichment and
in an audit conducted by an independent auditor we achieved a 40%
rating. The plans are to be able to transfer both technical and
business skills over a 5 year period.
The current directors of the company are: Malcolm Cox, Paul
Mponya Maliehe and Keith Wilson
