20 year celebration for SabertekBoy it is hard to believe that on the 31st of May 2013 Sabertek turned 20 years old, What a fan-tastic achievement !! In 1993 Derick Smalberger started up a small company doing Electronic design. Within 3 months he had to diversify somewhat and incorporate manufacturing. This was the beginning of a major snowball effect. In 1996 Sabertek bought their first production line 2nd hand on an auction and started to do sub contracting manufacturing. 20 years on Sabertek now employs 94 staff members from Centurion, Pretoria and the surrounding areas. They have two high speed SMT production lines placing up to 100 000 components per hour including state of the art vision inspection to ensure quality.
