Knight Source was established in 2004 and is an owner managed business. The years subsequent have seen us develop into becoming one of the leading suppliers of Die-Cut Self Adhesive labels, Label Printers, Barcode scanners and Thermal Transfer Ribbons to the Barcode and Auto ID industry.
Having been involved in the Barcode and Auto ID industries for over 12 years, a decision was made to start our own company. Our time in the workspace allowed us to identify the weaknesses and pit falls of the industry and in so doing gave rise to solutions and opportunities we felt were lacking in this competitive market.
For distribution of our Hardware Products (Label Printers, Barcode Scanners, PVC Card Printers), we have aligned ourselves with companies that are leaders in their respective fields. As such we are recognised as Authorised Resellers to a host of international brands. Our "Peace of Mind" Policy over the years has been to supply top quality branded products that have a trusted track record, not only in South Africa, but International as well.
The manufacturing of our Self Adhesive Labels and tags is done in-house in our Production facility. The unpredictable and chaotic nature of producing labels on demand is critical to most of our customers. We are well aware that to meet this demand you have to run a slick operation. As we are owner managed, it is not an uncommon sight to see the owners rolling up their sleeves and spending some time in the production plant - because we know how mission critical it is for our clients to get their orders on time.
Thanks to our local customer base and network of resellers, Knight Source has been able to show steady growth in this price sensitive industry. By offering extremely competitive pricing coupled with punctual service delivery, we have been able to capture market share beyond our initial expectations. Knight Source has a diverse product mix which enables us to always offer more than one solution, this in turn, means that our customers' needs and price expectations are always taken care of. Over the years we have established good business relationships with various Agents and Importers around the country, this has helped us build our customer base at a national level.
