    Platex (Pty) Ltd was founded in 1954 in Paarl in the Western Cape. Since then it has provided printed flexible packaging to the retail, industrial and agricultural markets of Southern Africa.

    The factory is a vertically-integrated polyethylene-plastic manufacturing plant, with blown-film extruders, flexographic printers, slitters, a laminator, and a multitude of bagmakers to suit the continually-changing variety of bag and seal types required by the markets.

Over the last six decades, the company has established a reputation for quality and service excellence in bringing to market the final packaging product with ever more complicated and intricate print designs. Our experience and innovation combined with that of the customer’s design house and the producers of the flexographic printing plates ensure that the final products are tailor-made to suit every customer’s specific needs.
