The Partnership

The basis of our business is built on partnership. We aim to build lasting relationships by providing excellent business solutions through innovative and advanced technologies.

We were founded in 2002 and our partnership was established in 2008 to become what is today know as ESA Partner.

The company was founded in 2002 by Thanasi Papaioannou, approaching the supply and maintenance of business technology solutions in a personalised and customer-centric way. He was later joined by Adolfe De Oliveira in 2006 and Garth Ennion in 2008, to commence trading as ESAPARTNER.

ESAPARTNER has become a leader in the business technology sector in the South African market, operating in Cape Town and throughout South Africa in all the major cities. The team comprises of various highly-skilled individuals certified in sales, installation and maintenance of our technology solutions. We remain true to our roots and pride ourselves in customer-service excellence.

ESAPARTNER’S vendor-neutral approach to business technology makes providing customers with the best solution without brand limitation,  possible. Our certified technical team gives us confidence in providing support across our full range of products from fibre to document management and everything in-between.
