Plastics SA Welcomes Meraxis South Africa as Member

Plastics SA is proud to welcome Meraxis South Africa (formally MBT South Africa) as a new member.

MBT South Africa was established in 1996 by Dick Coates, in partnership with the Endres family of Switzerland. In 2019, MBT merged with Rehau’s procurement Division to create the Meraxis Group. Meraxis South Africa is  an important part of an international organisation with an excellent reputation as an importer, stockist  and distributor of plastic raw materials (including PE, PP, PET, PVC and PS.)  With offices and warehouses in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban, as well as a warehouse in Beira Mozambique, Meraxis South Africa supplies a wide variety of Southern African  customers, across the various sectors of the polymer industry .

Commenting on why it was important for Meraxis SA to become member of Plastics SA, Ivan Horowitz, Managing Director Meraxis South Africa says: “At a time when plastics are under considerable scrutiny, Meraxis South Africa felt that it was important for us to be a member of a strong organisation that represents the interests of a broad variety of role players in the plastics industry. We look forward to working closely with Plastics SA to promote their vision of a sustainable plastics industry, with a focus on education and recycling”.
