DCI Scanning (Pty) Ltd was formed in January 1993 as a sole proprietary business to address all aspects of Automatic Identification in the Southern African Market. The prime objective by the founder and former managing director Mr Graham Charles Darlington was to consult to all sectors of the market, in Automatic Identification Applications, allowing the end user and related suppliers to the end user, to understand the technologies available, by supplying without prejudice and an unbiased point of view.
DCI Scanning’s original business philosophy through end user demand changed from one of purely consulting to a combination of consulting and distribution supply. This came about from a code of business ethic highly maintained by DCI & joint partnerships with DCI’s client base.
DCI focused in on client’s requirement and changed the image of the company to one that was more suitable to the market. DCI became a (Pty) Ltd company early in 1995 and conforms to Articles of Association. DCI is fully audited by Mareu Auditors (Pty) Ltd for managing and maintaining all financial aspects of DCI and other companies.
DCI’s success has developed from more than 40 years experience gained by its founder owner and share holder in the Automatic Identification market with an established client base of around 2000 users. These users vary from single item to total system supply value added resellers, incorporating all facets from consulting, supply, installation, system integration, project management, service and support. DCI’s client base is over 3000 and active user base consists of around 2000 active users and growing.
DCI’s head office is situated in Alberton with a branch in Port Elizabeth. In addition DCI Scanning (Pty) Ltd has on going business relationships with several companies focused in vertical markets, such as system integrator's, material handling consultants, point of sale suppliers and automation companies. Ninety five percent of DCI’s business is carried out directly with the end user thus minimizing clients’ risk.
