Our five key factors of success (KFS)

1. Quality
2. Availability
3. Service
4. Innovation
5. Value

Franklin Electric Co. Inc. is the world’s largest manufacturer of submersible electric motors and a leading producer of electronic control systems. These products are used by Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) around the world in a wide variety of residential, industrial, mining and municipal applications.

The principal application for Franklin Electric’s submersible electric motors and controls is for the pumping of underground water. In addition to this application, the company also manufactures and offers an extensive range of submersible pumps and motors for installation in the underground tanks of the retail fuel market.

Franklin Electric SA (Pty) Ltd is a subsidiary of Franklin Electric Co. Inc, a global company based in Bluffton, Indiana USA. The latter company is listed on the NASDAQ Stock Exchange and has approximately 2700 employees worldwide. Manufacturing and distribution facilities are situated in the USA, Germany, Czech Republic, Italy, Mexico, Australia, South Africa, China and Japan.

Franklin Electric SA (Pty) Ltd was established in 1972. Since then, an estimated 900 000 submersible electric motors have been installed in very basic domestic applications to mine dewatering installations 2700m below ground level. While the core product is submersible motors, the expertise levels of all our technical staff extends through to the pump, the pipe reticulation system and the electrical controls. Upliftment of the communities in which the company operates is an important part of our corporate mission. To this end, Franklin South Africa has provided employment opportunities for South Africans for 35 years. In addition, locally designed and manufactured products have also been added to the market offering.

The results of our efforts can be best summed up by the CEO of one of South Africa’s largest pump OEMs:

When it’s mission critical, only the best will do. Pumps powered by Franklin Electric motors execute critical operations so it is imperative that one makes the right selection. Franklin Electric supplies the best motors to power our pumps.

The Fueling division was established in 1994 in order to serve the needs of South Africa’s rapidly expanding Petro-chemical industry. Since then many local and international products have been made available while training programs have been offered in an effort to alleviate the critical skills shortage which is so prevalent in the region.

We the people of Franklin Electric SA (Pty) Ltd are committed to sustaining profitable growth to the mutual benefit of stakeholders by continuously striving to:

  • Impress and support our customers with superior products and services.
