Looking for a local manufacturer to manufacture products that you are importing at perhaps over inflated prices due to currency fluctuations, can be a tedious affair.
There are many products being imported that can and should be manufactured in South Africa. What is the point in importing a plastic bucket? Maybe someone local has what you need, maybe a company who can manufacture your imported product, or already has a similar product, at an equal or better price, without compromising quality, service of product etc., we can put you in touch with each other.
It gets rid of a lot of paperwork, saves time and takes much less patience to deal with the bureaucracy regulating importing at times. If you can find it here in South Africa, why not use it?
Besides the savings in carbon and the poisoning of the environment, can we afford not to look for alternatives.
