More about Plastilon and how we started
Plastilon Packaging had a very small and humble start in the back room of an estate agency in Lynnwood, Pretoria in 1973, by husband-and-wife team Ben & Lyn de Wet.
The initial product range was plastic bags in the form of butcher bags and carry bags, with a few customers buying customised printed bags.
However, Ben realised very soon that variety was essential and started expanding the range.
Today – 40 years later – Plastilon offers an exciting product range of more than 3 000 items!
Plastilon at present
- Plastilon has three wholesale warehouses in Pretoria and one in Swakopmund, Namibia
- Plastilon is managed by the second generation of De Wets assisted by a management team consisting of Jaco Botha (Director), Jan Gertenbach (Branch Manager: Silver Lakes), Jolene Fowlds (Branch Manager: Rietfontein) and Leon Smith (Branch Manager Centurion)
