Melco in South Africa

Bernina South Africa has been importing and distributing BERNINA branded products for the past 75 years. These products are synonymous with high quality, innovation and Swiss precision, and are known for their durability, with a tradition dating back more than 125 years.

With this background of promoting high quality BERNINA domestic embroidery products through our BERNINA dealer network, the decision to incorporate the superb quality Melco machines from the same parent company was a logical one.

We also have a number of years' experience in the industrial embroidery machine market, and with 7 independent Melco dealers throughout South Africa, Namibia and Mozambique, you can be assured of the highest quality advice and setup information as well as technical backup.
