Press Office - Alco-Safe


ALCO-Safe is the major supplier of quality electronic Breath Alcohol Detectors and accessories in South Africa with 43 years of experience in manufacturing, distribution and support. We have over 2500 clients, conducting testing for alcohol, spread over almost every aspect of the workplace.  Our constant contact with this diverse client base has led us to observe that there is an ever increasing problem relating to drugs of abuse other than alcohol in the workplace and of course elsewhere. After receiving requests from many existing clients we took the decision in 2009 to become involved in the supply of drug testing products and related services.   We are indeed fortunate to represent Abbott as we are able to provide their large range of quality products and avail ourselves of their expertise when approached by our clients for assistance.
