Strand Group Developments Join SA Vinyls Association

Strand Group Developments Join SA Vinyls Association:

Anton Maingard, Director of Strand Group Holdings (Pty) Ltd

Strand Group Developments (Pty) Ltd is the latest member to have joined the ranks of the Southern African Vinyls Association (SAVA), the industry body representing the local PVC industry.

According to Anton Maingard, Director of the KwaZulu Natal-based company, becoming a member of SAVA was a natural progression for them.

“We have been operating in the packaging industry for the past 25 years. Although traditionally our focus has been more on manufacturing our Main-Pak brand of high quality polystyrene foam packaging, we have also recently expanded our service offering to include producing Mainwrap food grade PVC cling film,” Maingard says.

Thanks to their experience with similar industry bodies, such as the Polystyrene Association of South Africa, Strand (who is founder member of PSASA) has first-hand experience of the importance and benefits that are derived from belonging to a product recovery organisation.

“Belonging to an industry association offers you networking opportunities, access to information and the opportunity to stay on top of industry developments. We believe that being part of a successful industry implies accepting a responsibility towards your fellow role-players who operate in that industry. By joining forces, you get to have a say in important issues that affect your business and your future. It is the right thing to do, and we knew that it would only be a matter of time before we joined SAVA,” he explains.

Maingard goes on to say that his company was happy to sign SAVA’s Product Stewardship Commitment (PSC) – a series of achievable commitments that aim to address the PVC industry’s environmental issues through adhering to sustainable manufacturing processes and the use of additives, implementing a closed-loop management system and raising sustainability awareness.

“We believe that SAVA has a very important role to play in educating the market about the manufacturing, use and recycling of PVC and that they are keeping the vinyls industry relevant. We are proud to be associated with the members who form part of this association and look forward to working closely with them in the years to come,” concludes Maingard.
