About Us

Our Mission is to design, create, develop and support technology that maximizes functionality, cost-effectiveness, conservation, creativity, innovation, with optimal running time; giving our customers piece of mind knowing our systems are in place and always on.

Oscar Electronics CC was founded in 1987, by Phillip Tout and has been in operation for more than 30 years. 

The company is still solely owned and operated by Phillip Tout, and his daughter, Lindi Tout.

Initially our primary focus was software development in the security industry as well as the design and implementation of software for the Mosgas project. 

In 1990, we began to discover that there was a need for fluid control in the petroleum industry, due to high pilferages in major workshops by staff members and thus the Lubamatic was born with more than 300 hundred units throughout Africa in addition to exports to the United Kingdom and North America.

Oscar Electronics designed and manufactured the first Intelligent RS232 to RS422 Converter used for data communication and also produced the irrigation system used by major golf courses including both the Lost City resort in South Africa together with the Paradise Island resort in the Bahamas. 

In 1994, we were approached by a key player in the world carwash industry to maintain and modify existing equipment to suit local environmental conditions; Oscar Electronics designed a water recycling plant for the carwash industry which cut the use of fresh water from an average of 390 litres to only 60 litres.

As a company we discovered that there was no infrastructure to allow for the development of a low cost Jet Wash system and that the average Car Wash cost in excess of four hundred thousand Rand to import this was clearly not realistic. So as pioneers in our field we designed a Jet Wash, which would cater not only for the local market but also too much of Sub Saharan Africa. 

In 2002, we designed and manufactured the only Jet Wash system in South Africa, which has a full management system to which we hold the patents.

We have a dedicated team who ensure projects run smoothly and are aligned to the clients’ business structure.
