INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGY THAT SETS US APART
Pop it
Within our product-focussed divisions (Boxmore Plastics South Africa and Boxmore Plastic Closures) we have a depth of expertise that is pretty much unrivalled. From advising you on the design and manufacture of PET bottles to recommending the most suitable solution from our range of pre-forms and closures, we can do it all.  And with companies like Husky, Kortec, Sidel, CSI and Andre Zalkin partnering us technologically, we can be of more assistance to you than you might imagine.

RESINS
As a supplier to the world's leading beverage manufacturers, we're committed to using only quality raw materials and our food contact ingredients are regularly checked and approved by Coca Cola and other global brands. Our resins (PET, HDPE and PP) are sourced both locally and internationally.
RECYCLING
Boxmore Packaging is committed to recycling not only in terms of the products we make but also in terms of the packaging and production materials we use. more>>
RECYCLING
Boxmore Packaging is committed to recycling not only in terms of the products we make but also in terms of the packaging and production materials we use. As a founding member of PETCO (the South African PET industry-funded organisation to promote recycling), we've been active in encouraging the recycling of PET for many years now and have recently joined POLYCO, the newly-formed Polyolefin (HDPE and PP) equivalent.

As the recycling process helps create employment, adds to domestic economic growth and reduces our reliance on virgin materials, we believe in creating and supporting a "virtuous value circle" which enables sustainable recycling by:

* Supporting collection and recycling
* Enabling recycling through better product design and education
* Growing demand for recycled products by developing new applications

To demonstrate our commitment to recycling, we make a voluntary contribution to either PETCO or POLYCO for every ton of resin sold in South Africa - and as a client of ours, you can rest assured knowing that, by virtue of the business you place with us, you are in essence supporting the recycling process.

What's important at the end of the day is that for every ton of PET resin recycled, 1.5 tons of carbon emission are saved.

TECHNOLOGY
Throughout our organisation is an appreciation that quality and service are products of people and equipment. To this end, we pride ourselves on the quality of our machinery and the condition in which we keep it. We utilise the latest technology in injection moulding and bottle blowing with the majority of our installed injection moulding equipment being supplied by Husky.

This includes three Husky-Kortec multi-layer machines that make Boxmore Plastics a world leader in multi-layer pre-form production. On the Closure side, most of our equipment is supplied by CSI and SACMI with our stretch-blow moulding equipment supplied by Sidel and our bottler labellers by Krones. Our relationships with these technology partners are but one more reason why the best brands choose Boxmore.

INNOVATION
As a company, we believe that matching product and application is essential and thrive on opportunities to develop new products. Our development - with Kureha Corp. - of the first commercial use of Poly Glycolic Acid (PGA) barrier technology is but one example of this and enabled the introduction of Appletiser in a 350ml PET format. More recently, our work with Diageo to replace its 200ml Smirnoff 1818 glass pack with a premium PET solution based on 2 stage technology enabled the production of the lightest PET "nip" bottles in the Diageo system without sacrificing look or feel or reducing bottle strength. <<

HISTORY
Boxmore Packaging is today a South African registered and owned company. One of the pioneers in the South African PET industry, the organisation was established in SA in 1996 by Irish packaging group Boxmore International and later amalgamated into the US-based Chesapeake Corp. The company commenced operations on a greenfield site outside Harrismith, halfway between the major centres of Johannesburg and Durban. In addition to the factory and Head Office in Harrismith, Boxmore Packaging now has subsidiary operations in Cape Town (injection moulding and bottle blowing) and Mauritius (pre-form manufacture) plus a new facility in Johannesburg (plastic closure manufacture) through the acquisition of the plastic closure division of MCG Industries. MCG Industries were one of the pioneers in the plastic closure market through their close association with Closure Systems International. The location of our manufacturing operations enables us to supply both the South African and African markets and qualifies us under a number of regional trade groups. Exports constitute a significant portion of sales with exports to 26 African countries. In 2009, the company was sold by the Chesapeake Corp. to a local private equity investment firm, Investment Bank Ltd. and management in a leverage buy-out deal. In 2010, Investec increased its share through its private equity division Principled Investments and a staff trust was established as part of our commitment to truly broad-based empowerment.  <<
