We currently produce more than 1.6 billion pre-forms annually, in 50 unique pre-form designs. Our diverse customer base requires that we develop pre-forms in various neck finishes and colours, and although we have a range of standard colours, our pre-forms can be produced in a variety of colours – from tints to opaque – and can be matched to specific colours for larger orders.
For local customers – in South Africa, Zambia or Mauritius – our pre-forms are supplied in returnable steel cages or plastic bins and for export, are packed in sturdy boxes (or gaylords) that allow for stacking at least 3 high in moderate humidity climates. Boxes are securely strapped to 4-way entry pallets and packed 2 high into standard shipping containers with 20 boxes to a standard 6m (20ft) container and 42 boxes to a standard 12m (40ft) container.
More than producing and supplying pre-forms, however, we also provide technical support where we advise on pre-form design and choice of pre-form and offer on-site assistance in terms of blowing pre-forms on our clients’ own blowing equipment.
