As of October this year, the Wittmann Group is represented by Ipex in the South African region. The company, based in Johannesburg, operates three sales offices in South Africa.
In view of the positive market development in the plastics industry in the South African region, the Wittmann Group has decided to intensify its activities on this market. With Ipex, an agency has been found which is characterized by in-depth market experience and many years' practice in selling high-quality machinery.
Ipex was established in 1963 and sells machinery for the printing and graphic design sector. With its sales and service offices in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town, Ipex is able to supply the South African market as well as the neighboring countries Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Lesotho and Swaziland efficiently, with short delivery times and excellent after-sales service. With its workforce of 50 people, the company has made high quality standards in customer management and technical service its prime concern. With this type of orientation, Ipex is an ideal partner for the Wittmann Group, which has also given top priority among its corporate goals to high quality standards in all areas.
For Ipex , the product range of the Wittmann Group – injection molding machines as well as automation equipment and peripherals – constitutes an interesting and challenging addition to its previous product portfolio. Bruce Allen, General Manager of Ipex Holding, comments: "Ipex is proud to be allowed to sell the Wittmann Group's products. We look forward to a long-term partnership and will do our best to make the Wittmann Battenfeld brand the first choice for customers in our region.”
Michael Wittmann, Managing Director of Wittmann Kunststoffgeräte GmbH, also looks forward to cooperation with Ipex: "We are confident that we have found in Ipex a partner who will optimally represent our interests in South Africa and adjacent markets."
