Haver & Boecker has entered into a joint venture with South Africa’s Portland Packaging (Pty) Ltd, marking the first time a global, full-line packaging company has domestically manufactured products for the African market, according to a press release.

“Bringing together the ingenuity and dedication of both of our manufacturing teams will be a huge benefit for Africa,” said Florian Festge, managing director, Haver & Boecker.

“Customers will have nearly immediate access to packaging machines and OEM-quality parts. Further, our teams and Portland Packaging’s teams of local employees embody a keen understanding of the region and its companies, which all have specific challenges that need unique solutions. They’re armed with the know-how and resources to serve any size or type of company — and to do so for less expense and in less time than ever before,” said Mr Festge.

The new partnership means that customers in Africa will be able to receive the manufacturers products in 24 hours, significantly reducing the previous waiting times associated with shipping.
