Sourcing and importation of promotional items.

Our Work

PROMO IMPORT has worked with a number of promotions and corporate gift companies in South Africa. We are on their regular calling list to provide quotes for almost every possible branded product and gift. Whether it's a soft toy that plays music when you squeeze it or a leather folio for your iPad. We are known to be able to source any product and deliver it at a price that will make you or your clients very happy.

There's a world of ideas out there! We don't just churn out the same products that everyone else has been doing for years. We brainstorm and think about the target audience, their values and aspirations. Graduation gifts for the student with their whole life ahead of them, rewards for hard-working employees.

We travel to the various trade-shows and fairs overseas and find the coolest and most exciting new products. We comb through the hundreds of flash sticks, thousands of watches and tens of thousands of key-rings and other paraphernalia to find that one awesome product, perfect for your brand.


Electronic Accessories

South Africa is a music loving country. Kwaito, Jazz, hip-hop and dance music. People love their music and everyone wants a pair of headphones and an MP3 player to rock out to their personal beats. Promo Import is widely known to the South African promotions industry as being the top importer for both over-ear and in-ear headphones and ear-buds.

We have done 35 000 headphones and 33 000 ear-buds for Amstel alone as well as headphones for Smirnoff and PEP to name a few. We have done MP3 players for Hunters and Amstel and also supply some major retailers in this space. We work with the best electronics manufacturers overseas to produce the best possible product with sounds quality that matches the status of your brand. Every unit is tested and packaged, ready to be given to your valued customers. Give the gift of music this season with Promo Import.


The Process

Moving from concept to completion requires a large amount of planning. Starting with a design, sketching out CAD drawings, deciding on a material, choosing a manufacturer and controlling the process all while trying to land your product at the best price and to the best quality standards.

Promo Import works with a number of manufacturers. We don't deal with Hong Kong agents and choose products from catalogues. We work with steel companies creating custom molds for bar blades and hip flasks. Using the source materials to create something unique, strong and durable that will not be thrown away after one use but rather be cherished for years to come.
