South African packaging company Nampak is focusing specially on Zambia, which is a part of its overall strategy to generate at least 25% of its revenue from the rest of Africa, besides South Africa, Angola, Kenya and Nigeria, by 2017.
Nampak chief executive officer Andrew Marshall said Zambia was a key to various strategic opportunities for their company.
In order to achieve that, Nampak is mulling building on the success of its ‘mini Nampak’ model in Zambia, which includes a range of packaging goods and services from the business’s diverse portfolio.
They include metal cans, drums and crowns, folding cartons, paper labels and self-opening bags, besides PET jars, HDPE bottles, crates, caps and closures.
Nampak has currently two manufacturing sites in Zambia, namely Lusaka and Ndola.
Nampak partners with multinationals in Africa, including for a cartons manufacturing plant in Nigeria and a beverage can-making facility in Angola.
