Evonik Acrylics Africa (EAA), a specialty plastics manufacturing company within Evonik Industries, has opened its Cape Town offices and technical training facility.
Acrylics Africa’s (EAA’s) South African manufacturing facility in Elandsfontein produces world-leading acrylic brand PLEXIGLAS and is extending its distribution and accessibility to African consumers. The investment in additional infrastructure and staff in the Eastern Cape provides a much-needed technical training center. The training center offers an opportunity to the customers to network with EAA staff and learns about the exciting array of tools and equipment at the training facility. The offices are fitted with custom manufactured lighting, planters, furniture, and décor, all produced from PLEXIGLAS.
Holger Morhart, General Manager of Evonik Acrylics Africa, said, “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 realization 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.”
Evonik’s Technical Training includes a series of ongoing training workshops at the new Cape Town premises and at different locations across Southern Africa, supported by sales and product support.
Holger Morhart, added, “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. We look forward to an exciting year working with our distribution partners and clients.”
Acrylics Africa’s (EAA’s) South African manufacturing facility benefits the African market with increased flexibility, shorter response times, and direct access to materials.
