Our story is one of exciting beginnings and moving from strength to strength. The dream began in 2009 when Ed Renno decided that he would carry out his dream to be the most exceptional distribution company in South Africa and make it a reality. As every new year was birthed, from 2009 to this present day, Fast Forward IT has also given birth to continued progress and development. We started out in the fast paced life of Johannesburg, South Africa. We later decided in 2015 to relocate our offices to Cape Town in order to be closer to our key clients. We have rapidly expanded and continue to grow.
Our success is due to consistent performance and focus on customer requirements, long term relationships and our focus on quality. Our focus and drive has been our crux and foundation. We are proud of the achievements of Fast Forward IT thus far. We are excited for you to join our story and journey with us.
Our reseller and retailer networks are found all over Africa, with brand presence in South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Swaziland, Lesotho and Zimbabwe.
More than ever before, the I.T Distribution Channel’s willingness to reinvent itself, embrace new ideas, seek new possibilities and recognize new opportunities is what will ultimately define its success and reputation.
Not all I.T re-sellers recognize this, but Fast Forward as an Independednt I.T Accessories Distributor do, and we’re ready to help spark the changes that inspire our clients businesses!
