Masterbatch SA (Pty) Ltd (MBSA) is the first masterbatch manufacturer in South Africa to achieve ISO9001:2008, ISO14001:2004, ISO18001:2007 and ISO22000:2005 accreditations for quality, environmental and health & safety management systems.
“Our payoff line “we’ve earned our colours™” now has even more significance”, says Anthony van Niekerk, Managing Director. “One of MBSA’s core values has always been respect, not only for people but for the environment as well. This achievement was made possible through the hard work, commitment and focus of a remarkable team.”
MBSA enables its customers to reduce, reuse and recycle plastic components to fulfill the consumer’s ever increasing demand for greener plastic solutions. MBSA offers tailor made masterbatch solutions to the metallocene industry which in turn is used to reduce packaging weight. Furthermore, MBSA ensures that plastic can be reused by offering a wide variety of UV stabilized masterbatches as well as supplying specialized products to improve the quality of recycle.
Kahn Morbee of The Parlotones, South Africa’s premier band, says of MBSA, “You’ve gone green but still do millions of colours in a Rainbow Nation”. The Parlotones have represented among others, the Carbon-free™ project in an effort to raise interest in green initiatives. Inspired by the band’s commitment to environmental responsibility, MBSA is doing what it can to limit any negative impact on natural resources.
The Parlotone’s drummer Neil Pauw is the talented artist behind “Four Seasons” and “Goldfish”, the artwork showcased in MBSA’s newest adverts. MBSA commissioned Neil to create vibrant and relevant works of art incorporating masterbatch pellets.
