South Africa is a highly strategic market for
Ti
, as we focus to deliver our specialized products, while coupling
that portfolio with our dedicated local service groups, which have always had a mandate to serve the packaging
industry. As part of the changing dynamics of themarket,
Ti
has been a front runner in service excellence, although
we have not been domestically located. Establishing the
Ti
bond store in Durban, just one year ago, was a natural
step in this progression.
Ti
hasworked, hand in hand, with the local partnerswho have enabled this transition to be
possible. Today, after 11 years of long standing association, Flexible Packaging & Exporting Company has handed
over the mantle to BOPP Packaging Solutions (BPS), a subsidiary of the
West African Group
.
Established 22 years ago,West AfricanGroup has been engaged in distribution of Polymers, Rubber and Chemicals
in South and West Africa. With nine warehousing facilities in South Africa, as well as one in Zimbabwe, West
African Group is well equipped in driving
Ti
’s efforts in servicing the flexible packaging industry in Southern Africa.
This association will reenergize
Ti
’s mission in widening the customer base, enhancing the service levels with
existing customers, as well as expanding into neighboring markets.
