About us

Success runs in the van Schalkwyk genes. In fact you cannot talk about business leaders in Polokwane and leave the van Schalkwyk name out of the conversation.

For many years the much loved Lotie van Schalkwyk had a supermarket in Levubu. Popular with the locals the shop was well supported because Lotie always had an ear and loved to chat with his friends, and his clients were all his friends. In 1976 Lotie, who had recognized an opportunity in the fast growing Pietersburg, moved the family and opened TeeVeeRama in Landros Mare Street. Pietersburg was expanding rapidly and Lotie saw a gap in the market for a home appliance and audio visual supplier. With a passion for people and strong in the belief that service, professionalism, competitive prices and quality products, Lotie’s small business grew from strength to strength very quickly. In 1979, Lotie’s son Lodewyk had joined the business and they were forced to move to bigger premises in order to cope with the growing demand for their products and service, and they continued to grow. In 1986 they were forced to move to even bigger premises yet again. TeeVeeRama was now the largest home appliance and audio visual retailer in the town, a town that was fast becoming a city. Lotie Snr, while still playing a major part in the business, handed the reigns of management over to Lodewyk Jnr, who shared the same passion for TeeVeeRama and it’s ongoing successes. Lotie Snr concentrated on his other passion, his farm in Alldays.

With support from a large farming community and a growing demand for game hunting and birding in Limpopo, Willem van Schalkwyk, Lodewyk Jnr’s brother, opened a Multirama Weapons in 1989. Sharing the family passion for people, Multirama Weapons under Willem’s leadership followed the same trend as TeeVeeRama.

The van Schalkwyks were, and still are, recognized as business and community leaders, and where assistance was required for community development and projects, you could be sure the van Schalkwyk’s are there to lend a hand.

In 1992, Deons, a large discount chain, made TeeVeeRama and offer Lodewyk Jnr could not refuse and TeeVeeRama was sold. Lodewyk Jnr kept the music division and Willem joined his father on the farm. When Deons were taken over by Mass Stores, who also had Game, a decision was made to close Deons in town and staff and business moved to the Game Center to trade under the Game banner.

Once again, a gap had been left in the market. The city now needed a specialized Audio Visual and Music and Entertainment specialist. Enter Christiaan van Schalkwyk, son of Lodewyk Jnr, who had just completed his studies. Under the guidance and with the assistance of his father, and the support of his beloved Grandmother, Christiaan opened Audio Corporation in 2003.

There is no holding a Van Schalkwyk down. Christiaan shares the same mission, vision and passion as his father and his grandfather before him. Christiaan believes that he shares the same strengths and lists them as “a passion to succeed, entrepreneurship and sound strategic input”. He shares the same “gut feel” for business and puts his strengths into implementing systems that deliver measurable results. 

In 12 years Audio Corporation has grown from strength to strength. The Audio Visual specialists is the only one of it’s kind in Polokwane.

And there’s more to come…watch this space!!!!!
