Motorola incorporated was founded in Chicago, USA, in 1928. Due to global expansion within the radio communications field, a South African branch was consolidated through a distributor in 1963.

As a result of the fast growing communications market in South Africa, Motorola opened a corporate office in Wynberg (Johannesburg) in 1975.

In 1985 Motorola South Africa (Pty) Limited became a wholly owned subsidiary of Allied Technologies Limited (Altech). The Motorola two-way products were merged under the distribution arm of Alcom Systems, a division of Altech.

Alcom Radio Distributors (Pty) Limited has been operating independent of Alcom System (Pty) Limited since 1995. Prior to thisa single company under the name of Alcom Systems provided products and services across the entire spectrum of radio communication user needs. The purpose of this separation was to focus on the bulk user and dealer network markets, while simultaneously reducing overheads and ultimately costs to the end user. Alcom Radio Distributors has become a finely tuned vehicle successfully fulfilling the goal of providing the best quality product at the most reasonable price while at the same time being supported by the financial strength of Altron and the unquestioned engineering skills and capability of Alcom Systems. The Alcom companies, previously operating as Motorola South Africa, have collectively been operating in South Africa for over fifty years.
