About Us

Who we are

Taropa Technologies moved away from the original Distribution Business Model to simplify business between resellers/dealers and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). 

We’ve evolved into a Channel Development Partner (CDP) role, offering distribution on a new scale. We provide new products, solutions and value added support to both existing and potential resellers/dealers in South Africa and the Rest of Southern Africa (ROSAF). 

Our product portfolio has been carefully selected to meet the constantly changing trends and demands in today’s working environment. Our strong and dedicated service team offers world-class support and fully accredited technical training. 

When you partner with Taropa Technologies, we can confidently facilitate and create ease of business. The full benefits of our unique relationship with top OEM’s are offered to our Partners by understanding their policies, procedures and dealings. This ensures that Taropa’s Partners have a unique selling point from the biggest brands currently in the market.
