So who are we?
Based in Cape Town, we first launched in South Africa in 1992, trading as Maplin South Africa, and as a distributor of the UK company, Maplin. However, following a £15m+ buyout of Maplin in 2000 we decided to become an independent entity and changed our name to Yebo Electronics. We continue to offer a similar range of products, but by dealing directly with reputable suppliers and manufacturers we are able to pass on the cost benefits to our customers.
