Electromoc EE (Empresa Estatal Electrónica Electrotecnia); Mozambique

Founded: 1978
Closed: 1992
Production: 1978 -

1978 core business: Consumer Electronics and Telecommunications services. In 1981 core business expanded with two new branches: "FDI-Fábrica de Dispositivos de Iluminação" to manufacture illumination devices. "FAE-Fábrica de Aparelhos Electrónicos" to manufacture electronic devices like radios and televisions. This branch has manufactured a huge popular and low cost radio in very large quantities for the Mozambique people in the 80's, the famous original Xirico Radio, based on the GDR (German Democratic Republic) Contura 2500 but using different wave bands. In 1986 core business focus has changed to be a state owned service oriented company for the energy (electrical power) sector. In 1977, two years after Mozambique independence, the Ministry of Industry and Trade decided to create an administrative committee to manage 12 private electronics companies operating in Mozambique at the time, suspending all previous managements, merging them to create a new nationalized company called "ELECTROMOC EE - Empresa Estatal Electrónica Electrotecnia". This merging process has continued during several years up to 1986 by adding more previously owned companies whose owners had abandoned the Country.

Partial listing of private companies nationalized and merged into ELECTROMOC EE(from 1977 until 1986): A. N. Gonçalves, Agência Mercantil, CONRAD-Construtora Rádio Eléctrica, Electro-Máquinas, Electro-Motores, ENIMOC-Electricidade Naval e Industrial de Moçambique, Estação de Serviço Electro-Bobinadora, Ivo Peres-Electrotécnicos Industriais, Justo Menezes Electrotécnica, Moçambique Rádio, PROTEC-Indústrias de Produtos Técnicos, Rádio Avenida, Rádio Globo, Cardiga Filhos, Radiomar, RADIÓNICA-Rádio Televisão e Electrónica, Rádio Scala, STOP-Sociedade Técnica de Obras e Projectos, Decibel Limitada, Electro Reparadora, Electrónica Limitada, ENEME- Empresa Nacional de Equipamento e Material de Escritório, Neontécnica, Justo Menezes NEON, Decorluz, EPEL NEON-Indústrias Eléctrica e Publicitárias, Soluz, Luzelsom, Electro Motriz, Fábrica de Candeeiros Eléctricos Maia, CELMOQUE-Fábrica Condutores Eléctricos Moçambique.

The company has extended business with new equipment offerings from GDR (German Democratic Republic) among other countries willing to help the Country. In 1992, Electromoc changed its name to Tecnel, with 75% of its share owned by private investors and the rest held by the state.

In 1996, ABB Tecnel was created as the result of the join venture between ABB international and Tecnel, with 60% owned by ABB and 40% by Tecnel. In later years ABB Tecnel investors has bought the ABB shares, changing the name again to Tecnel, while maintaining the ABB partnership. Current Tecnel address: Av. das Industrias, Parcela 760 C.Postal 99, Machava, Maputo
