PLASTIC PACKAGING (PTY) Ltd specialises in the manufacturing, warehousing, and distribution of flexible film products and other related packaging products to the Namibian and other International markets. Founded 37 years ago from humble beginnings in Namibia, the business is now a worldwide organization which reacts cleverly to market demands. The company embarked on expansions from one manufacturing site in Windhoek to 8 other distribution centers nationwide.
Understanding the value of recycling and the impact of plastic waste to the environment of Namibia, our company has identified the need to invest in recycling and therefore incorporated the Namibian Polymer Recycling plant in Okahandja. Through this acquisition Plastic Packaging understands the value of re-using recycled plastic material and took the next logical step to venture into a new market.
NAMIBIA PLASTIC CONVERTERS (PTY)Ltd in Okahandja was incorporated into the Plastic Packaging Group in 2018, and this closed the recycling chain to convert the recycled plastic raw material from our recycling plant, into usable products such as irrigation pipes.
Namibia Plastic Converters’ vision is to become the leading plastic pipe manufacturer in Namibia, producing polyethylene and PVC pipe to local and international standards, but which also meets the needs of the country. This vision is being achieved by an extensive program of growth in production capacity through investment in equipment and people.
Part of our International expansion, Plastic Packaging owns Ango Plasticos and Huila Packaging in Angola. Ango Plasticos SA is a distributor of plastic and other packaging related products into the Angolan market through our branches in Luanda, Benguela, and Lubango. This network makes it possible to supply the variety of markets of Angola.
In the South African market, we service our customers through our distribution centers listed as Plastic Packaging Cape and operates from our South African warehouses in Upington and Kimberly.
Although Plastic Packaging has an International footprint, we always stay true to our own country, Namibia. We pride ourselves on being a 100% Namibian owned company and only appoint Namibian employees to invest in our country and our people. We currently have +/-600 employees at Plastic Packaging

We proud ourselves to be one of the few companies in Namibia to obtain ISO 9001 certification through the accreditation process conducted by DQS in 2017.

Plastic Packaging Namibia takes full recycle responsibility for the products we manufacture. Post-industrial & post-consumer waste are sent to Namibia Polymer Recyclers in Okahandja (NPR) where the plastic waste is re-processed into raw material and used for second life-cycle products such as our own Star refuge bags and NPC’s irrigation pipes. Plastic Packaging Group is committed to protecting the environment and all our individual companies make concerted efforts to help save our planet.
Plastic Packaging believes that it is our responsibility to help balance the supply and demand for plastic products by educating the public about the manufacturing and recycling processes of plastic products in Namibia. Since plastic products are here to stay, we need to find the best possible solutions on how to co-exist with our environment and preserve it for the future generation.
We strive not only to be a better manufacturer of plastic products but to also provide the solution and support for the reduce, reuse and recycling of all plastic products in Namibia. Through our learning processes, we have realized that our company has a valuable contribution to the international drive to include responsible disposal and recovery to our service offering.
This is accomplished through Namibia’s Refuse Derived fuel project, in partnership with Rent-A-drum and Ohorongo cement. Non-recyclable waste is supplied to Ohorongo’s manufacturing plant which is equipped to combust waste with minimal risk to the environment while utilizing the energy reservoir contained in refuse. With gas temperatures of up to 2000°C, the cement manufacturing process guarantees a complete combustion and destruction of all toxic substances, resulting in no harmful emissions and with no compromise to the environment.
Plastic Packaging has manufactured, supplied or distributed over 6000 products to date. We stock a variety of products consisting of standard-manufactured to custom-made products and can supply both plain and printed packaging products according to our customer’s requirements.
Plastic Packaging is continuously investing in new technology to exceed customer expectations with superior products. Our latest investment in manufacturing technology in extrusion and flexographic printing has been acquired in combination with a focused approach on product engineering. The result will be tailor-made products for customer- specific applications and requirements. These improvements will equip us to print up to 6 colours on the individual, standard products as well as on customized sizes.
