Evonik Acrylics Africa expands to a new location in Cape Town
Acrylics Africa, a speciality plastics manufacturing company within Evonik Industries, announced the opening of its Cape Town offices and technical training facility.
EAA is committed to extending the distribution and accessibility of its world-leading acrylic brand, PLEXIGLAS®, to African consumers. The investment in additional infrastructure and staff in the Eastern Cape supports this growth and provides a much-needed technical training centre. At an intimate opening function at the new premises, customers had the opportunity to network with EAA staff and investigate the exciting array of tools and equipment that forms part of the training facility. The offices feature elements such as custom manufactured lighting, planters, furniture, and décor, all produced from PLEXIGLAS®.
“We take pride in our ability to advise customers on acrylic product selection, applications and working guidelines. With the increased brand presence for PLEXIGLAS® in recent years also came the realisation that there is a huge demand for focused technical training. We have the technical competence to improve the skill levels of our customers, help them grow their businesses, and service the market better,” said Holger Morhart, General Manager of Evonik Acrylics Africa.
Evonik’s Technical Training Manager Mr David van Eyk will be responsible for a series of ongoing training workshops at the new Cape Town premises and at different locations across Southern Africa, whilst newly appointed Technical Services Representative Christallo Immelman takes on the role of sales and product support.
“Skills development within the industries we serve is a key focus area for business development and we are proud of the technical competence of our staff,” concluded Mr Morhart. “We look forward to an exciting year working with our distribution partners and clients.”
