ACDC Express is a unique store that offers a dynamic and versatile shopping experience. We specialise and are not limited to providing expert electrical solutions, DIY products, home improvement accessories and excellent energy saving solutions. This type of store is the first of its kind, allowing you to browse at leisure in an electrical “supermarket” of sorts. We provide various value-added services including supplying large-scale industries with essential materials for electrification, right down to assisting you to choose the right bulb.

The Brand

ACDC Express is an electrical retail franchise, specialising in everything electrical. Established in 2007, our core focus is to provide customers with quality electrical solutions. We offer a full turn-key solution and a unique concept store that provides customers with a convenient and versatile shopping experience, allowing customers to browse at leisure in what is effectively an electrical ‘supermarket’. In addition, ACDC Express actively participates in adding value to the customers by not only meeting customer expectations through superior customer service, but continuously offering excellent after sale service. Our independently owned stores are primarily supplied by ACDC Dynamics, which boasts a product range of over 80 000 individual items. These products are crucial in daily operations within the home, office and factory. This automatically creates a great and continuous demand for these products.

The growth and success of the ACDC Express Franchise Group is attributed to 2 basic principles, which form the cornerstone of the business: Customer Relationship Management and maximising business efficiency.

Concept

At ACDC Express we strive for service excellence. We look to ensure our services are of the highest quality and that they are always centered around our ACDC Express customers.
