DPI PLASTICS – NEW BLACK EMPOWERMENT VENTURES - 2003-12-09
DPI Plastics has virtually completed the establishment of its Black Economic Empowerment network, which will service civil, industrial, building and agricultural markets across all regions of South Africa.
New to the family of empowered partners and to be incorporated into DPI Phumela Trading Cape Town is Aquaduct Engineering, specialising in Steel Fabrications. Through this venture DPI Phumela Trading further strengthens its Black Economic Empowerment structure and introduces a new realm in steel systems fabrication. The company now specialises in both plastics and steel systems to the water, sewer and agricultural and industrial sectors. The synergy with steel fabrication opens many new doors for DPI Phumela Trading to supply specialised welded systems in standard and stainless steel.
Through DPI Phumela Trading and through Boseng (Pty) Ltd the company offers a comprehensive range of fabricated PVC and steel products. Its Black Empowerment partners, Incledon DPI, DPI Motown, DPI Phumela Trading and Boseng cover the full components package for pipeline solutions. Vital to seeing this Empowerment strategy through to finality is the imminent introduction of a new Black Empowerment venture in Kwa-Zulu Natal.
The DPI Plastics business concept has become very visible to the market in recent months demonstrating the company’s intent to be a manufacturer and supplier of plastics systems and pipeline solutions. The company’s Black Economic Empowerment partners have fully embraced the empowerment initiative and continuously strive to understand customer needs, exploring new markets and opportunities and introducing the company’s new products and new technologies.
Apart from DPI’s empowerment initiatives the pipe industry has come to expect the regular introduction of new and world-class products: from Ultraflo PVC-M, Gemini Biax PVC-O, Freeflo soil and vent and drainage pipes and fittings, Ultracor foamed pipe, Durocor Polyethylene drainage pipe to the recent addition of Duroflex flexible PVC hose products.
