Kemaza Holdings (Pty) Ltd is the holding company for Tekmart . It is majority Black women owned ICT company with a B-BBEE level 3 score. We are a post warranty multi-vendor infrastructure support services company. We provide end-to-end ICT services and solutions across all industries.
We are an end-of-life (EOL) distributor of data center & networking hardware. We give our customers independence from defined IT product lifecycles, allowing an organization’s business and technical needs to drive their hardware upgrades. By coupling traditional distribution services with our end-of-life expertise, we offer customers a simple and cost-effective method for extending, maintaining, and optimizing their enterprise IT.
We believe that it is worth it to extend the life of end-of-life products. In our experience, end-of-life products are usually still in good working condition long after the manufacturer stopped service. Extending the life of a system might sound a bit intimidating, but it is quite simple: as long as you have access to used or refurbished spare parts and knowledge about the system, it is easy to maintain it. Likewise, end-of-life products are usually still in good working condition, and especially if they have been through a refurbishment process, there is no reason to worry about quality and durability.

Quality Control at Kemaza
Before we put equipment into stock, it goes through our refurbishment process. Products only become part of our stock if they have passed all tests. For our testing we use either the brand’s own diagnostics tools, or if it is possible, also the built in test system. If a product is configured, then it also goes through an extra round of testing, so we can be certain that the configuration was successful, and your order is working according to your wishes.
The majority of our equipment comes with 1 year’s warranty, with the exception of tapes, drives and batteries. For tapes, drives and batteries, we offer a shorter warranty period of 3 months. If you need a special warranty period, you can ask your contact person for extended warranty. We pride ourselves in delivering fully functioning equipment so you do not have to worry about the quality of a refurbished part. In the event a part stops working within its warranty period, simply go to our website and use our easy online RMA form to process your claim.
