Blackview is a globally-renowned technology brand that was founded in March 2013, and it has been distributed in South Africa by leading technology distributor Arbalest since 2019.
Arbalest prides itself on offering the best international technology products and services at affordable prices, as well as finding unique ways to deliver more value to users.
Arbalest is an award-winning Blackview distributor in South Africa, and since distributing the brand has grown the sales over 40- 50% year on year for the last 4 years.
With such impressive sales numbers, it is no surprise that Arbalest has won multiple awards from Blackview that recognise its position as a global leader in Blackview product distribution.
In 2023, Arbalest has already won a Certificate of Honour for being one of the top 10 esteemed and valued Blackview global partners of 2023.
It was also crowned the importer and distributor to achieve the highest volume of Blackview sales in 2023 for South Africa.
Thanks to this success in growing Blackview’s brand locally, it has also been appointed as the exclusive South African distributor of Oscal products – Blackview’s sister brand.
How Arbalest promotes Blackview tech
Arbalest has managed these impressive achievements by taking innovative approaches to its sales processes.
Examples of this include bundling Blackview devices with products from other brands to deliver maximum value to customers.
A great example of this is its Blackview Power in a Box offering, which combines the Blackview MP60 mini-PC with a Samsung monitor, a Logitech mouse, and a Logitech keyboard.
Through this bundle, South Africans have access to a comprehensive PC setup – empowering them to stay productive in their studies, at work, or at home.
Arbalest is committed to finding new ways to expand Blackview’s presence and popularity even more locally – putting Blackview’s high-quality technology products in the hands of more South Africans.
Blackview originally specialized in rugged outdoor phones to support rugged lifestyles, and given the overwhelming success of these devices, it expanded into the mainstream market.
Blackview now operates in over 80 countries with more than 100 authorised agents worldwide, and offers a wide range of technology products – including smartphones, tablets, mini-PCs, accessories, and much more.
Its 8,500 sqm mega factory has a high emphasis on quality and ensures that strict quality testing processes are followed to ensure that every user has a great user experience.
For example, its rugged devices are IP68 and IP69K certified, with some models even meeting the MIL-STD-810G military-grade standard.
The quality of its products has also been recognised by a long list of accolades and achievements, including:
- Red Dot Award 2020 for exemplary design against 6,000 entries from over 60 countries.
- World’s first 5G rugged smartphone launched in 2020 – BL6000 Pro
- World’s most affordable 4G phone in 2021 – Blackview A100
- Yahoo Lifestyle Canada crowned the Blackview A80 Plus the best-priced smartphone in 2022
Thanks to this reputation for excellence, Blackview has achieved a 20% year-on-year growth rate throughout its history.
Blackview has no intention of resting on its laurels and continues to grow its operations and develop new product lines.
For example, it recently expanded into the Middle East, with Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and Kuwait now all having access to Blackview’s industry-leading rugged technology.
Therefore, individuals and corporates seeking high-quality technology should look no further than Blackview’s extensive catalogue – and Arbalest can help you get your hands on these products.
