SRF inaugurated the most sophisticated BOPP film manufacturing plant in South Africa

The perfect base for SRF to implement its African growth strategy.


Recently, several key converters, suppliers and media guests joined SRF’s Indian-based directors and local management team for the official ribbon-cutting ceremony in Cato Ridge, KwaZulu-Natal.

The sophisticated, ultra-modern plant is the first BOPP manufacturing site built by SRF Flexipak, a member company of the SRF Group, one of India’s largest and oldest chemical and industrial manufacturing dynasties.


Ludwig Eckart, COO Brückner Maschinenbau attended the inauguration ceremony and was highly impressed: “The inauguration was an excellent piece of work as was the whole project: perfectly planned and executed by SRF in a very professional manner. The factory is a milestone within South Africa’s packaging industry concerning size, organization and cleanness. We are very proud to have successfully contributed to this challenging project, with our line which has run smoothly since day one.”


The African packaging industry is developing very positively, partly with two-digit growth rates. With a modern infrastructure and stable economy, South Africa is the perfect base for SRF to implement its African growth strategy.
