Expanding for 2021 and Beyond
During January 2021 we doubled the size of our Chinese factory and increased the South African manufacturing capacity substantially. We also increased and optimised the painting and testing facilities in the factories to ensure timely supply of our expanding range of antennas. In this edition our vehicle antennas are used in interesting applications. MCS B.V in The Netherlands use our PUCK to improve the safety of road workers and our MIMO antenna is used to keep a Rally Team connected in the remote areas of Brazil. We introduce Sebatstian Pyka from Cablant, our partner in Switzerland, and say hallo to new colleagues that joined Poynting recently.
To keep ahead with growing volume demands, Poynting Antennas is investing in the expansion of its antenna manufacturing capacity in South Africa and China. This will enable us to supply our rapidly expanding range of antennas to a wider market.
NWM is a specialist cross country race car manufacturer based in South Africa. We supplied a 5-in-1 vehicle mount antenna for their vehicles that that was used in the Sertões Rally, the largest rally in the Americas.
In this introduction article, Pieter Prinsloo, gives us quick overview on why you need an outdoor antenna for your 4G or 5G Router. Keep an eye out for more on this subject in subsequent issues.
When MCS B.V, our partner in The Netherlands had to suggest a small, but robust antenna for a Traffic Management System, our 5-in-1 PUCK was the obvious choice, as a stable connection is essential in this application.
Sebastian Pyka gives us a glimpse into his company, life and family. Any man that is running a business, looking after his family, going to the gym, and still has time for 2 guinea pigs has our admiration!
We welcome a new IT Developer, Junior Industrial Engineer, RF Engineering Technician, HR Business Partner and Implementation Manager to the Poynting Group. We look forward to getting to know you all better.

Have a look at our Poynting Rhyno Antenna – it is an Omni-directional, wideband LTE/5G antenna that covers the 698 – 3800 MHz band..
What an exciting year for the Poynting Team. The 2nd year of working remotely went much smoother than the first and we are all getting used to Teams meetings with partners and colleagues from all over the world.
In 2021 we opened an office in the USA and our European team more than doubled in size. South African production, logistics and finance teams courageously battled international supply and logistics constraints to supply more antennas than ever before.
Andre wrote a letter where he hints to what is being planned for 2022 – have a look below. To quote his wish for all of us: “Do things, take risks and be happy regardless of failure or success.”
