Reivilo Technologies CC, trading as Minelab South Africa is the official and exclusive Distributor of the World’s Leading Minelab Metal Detector Brand in South Africa, Namibia, Swaziland, and Lesotho. Minelab South Africa also has non-exclusive Minelab distribution rights in various other countries, this includes but is not limited to, Angola, Mozambique, Malawi, Zambia, Gabon, Congo, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Madagascar, Mauritius, and Seychelles.
The origins of Minelab South Africa can be traced back to 1999 when its founder, George Olivier, first established a business relationship with the Countermine Division of Minelab Australia. Initially, as a Sole Proprietor, he became involved in the supply and after-sales service of Countermine Detectors to various Humanitarian Demining Organisations, NGOs, Militaries, and Commercial Demining Companies.
Early in 2003, Reivilo Technologies CC was officially established. At the time, the company was not only involved with Countermine (Land mine/UXO/IED detection) but also specialised in Telecommunications, which included all the Satellite Systems and VHF & HF Long Distance Radio Communications. The Australian Codan HF Radio Systems were a considerable part of the communication business. In 2008, Codan would acquire Minelab and Minelab became a sister company of Codan Radio. Minelab was now part of the ASX-listed Codan Group of Companies.
Forward to 2008 and Minelab International requested Reivilo Technologies to also get involved in the Commercial side of the Minelab business, to expand the market and increase the Minelab sales in the Gold Detector and Treasure Detector products in South Africa. At the time there were two other Minelab Dealers in South Africa, Detectors 4 Africa and Astro Automation offering only the Minelab Gold Detector and Minelab Treasure Detector products.
In February 2012, Minelab International signaled their intent to consolidate the Minelab Metal Detector business in South Africa under a main Minelab Metal Detector Distributor with a Minelab Metal Detector Dealer Network. A process followed and in January 2013 Reivilo Technologies was officially appointed as the Minelab Metal Detector Distributor and tasked to develop the Minelab Metal Detector market in the Region in a cohesive way. Reivilo Technologies CC could now officially trade as Minelab South Africa.
Over the past 23-years and through dedication and considerable investment, Minelab South Africa has established itself as the leading metal detector supplier in the Region. Minelab is the World Leader in Metal Detecting Technology and for the past two decades, we specialise in only the Minelab brand, which includes the full spectrum of Minelab Countermine products, Minelab Gold Detectors, and Minelab Treasure Detectors and house a fully qualified and stocked Minelab Accredited Service Centre. A success story in the Metal Detection industry in the region. Other metal detector brands found in the region include gold detectors and treasure detectors, which include but is not limited to Garrett Metal Detectors, Nokta Metal Detectors, Nokta Makro Metal Detectors, Fisher Metal Detectors, Teknetics Metal Detectors, XP Metal Detectors, and various offerings of other 3-D Detectors and Long-Range Gold Detectors and Long-Range Diamond Detectors, of which there is a lot to say about, but this for later. The fact that we only specialise in Minelab Metal Detectors, makes Minelab South Africa unique in the World, as others also offer different brands of metal detectors and/or only the Treasure Detector or Gold Detectors range. This dedication to the Minelab Metal Detector brand culminates in a Team with more than 50-years of combined experience in all aspects of metal detecting and a deep understanding of metal detecting technology. We are the most professional Metal Detecting Supplier in Africa, supplying for the past 23-years only the best metal detection technology available in the world. We have no plan to surrender this position!
