Walvis Bay



Walfish Electric (Pty) Ltd – Then and Now, 28 years later…

We would like to invite you to join us on a trip to the past, where we look at the history of our wonderful company, the people that crossed our paths and everything we went through on our journey to the NOW. A Company cannot be a success without a team of staff members that are prepared to walk that extra mile, esteemed customers that are always there to support us and the suppliers to cater to our every need to keep up with the changing trends and times.

Get ready for a wonderful journey into the past, to the beginning of this proud Company’s existence…

I would like to take you all back to the year, 1982, the year when Mr. H.O. Himmel established the company in rented premises. He laid down the stepping stones to make it possible for the company to grow from strength to strength. After many successful years he decided to sell the company in the year 1989, to his son, Ecki Himmel and partner, Jochi Braune. With an already sound foundation and lots of hard work, Walfish Electric grew stronger and stronger with each year gone by and in the year 2009 they opened a branch in Swakopmund bearing in mind customer satisfaction and hands on friendly service to society. In 2015 Walfish Electric opened a third branch in Tsumeb, to cater for the customers in the North of our beautiful Country.

Walfish Electric became part of people’s lives by providing to their electrical needs in so many ways, from a small light bulb to catering to the Industrial sector of Namibia. They are based in Walvis Bay and Swakopmund, close to the only deep-water harbor in Namibia and gateway to Africa and serve not only the local contractors and industry, but also the coastal area and Namibia as whole.

This is the one stop shop for domestic house installations for contractors, suppliers to the Fishing industry and Ancillary Service industry and suppliers of overhead line material for the Rural Electrification Program and Lucy Switchgear. They supply and deliver to electrical contractors as far as Rundu in the North and Oranjemund in the South and will keep on providing their customers with the quality service that they deserve.

If you think electrical, Walfish Electric will be the place to cater to your needs!
