Local manufacturers of prepayment electricity metering systems and products in South Africa have set up a manufacturers’ association to promote local manufacturing, export opportunities and to interact with customers on issues of common interest. The inaugural members of the South African Prepayment Electricity Meter Manufacturers Association (SAPEMMA) come from Landis+Gyr, Conlog, Actaris and CBI (Circuit Breaker Industries). 

The association will represent local manufacturers but will not itself be a supplier, and will interact with customers on such matters as the maintenance of, and compliance with, open international prepayment standards.
