Company Profile

Whether it's experience or quality, price or supply, we meet the needs of our clients.

Since 1964, with an uncompromising commitment to quality and service, we have been supplying customers in the food and beverage industries with locally manufactured flexible packaging.

A combination of knowledge and expertise associated with 46 years of experience, has secured our place as the largest supplier of poly-clip ® TSA roll stock film as well as quality shrinkable barrier nylon casings to the South African market.

Our sister company, Columbit, are agents for the poly-clip® TSA equipment, visit www.columbit.com. For anyone wanting to start new shrink sleeving operations, the Columbit Group is able to offer the full spectrum in terms of machine sales (Fujiseal, Sleeveit and Nortan sleeve application equipment) installation, service and maintenance as well as printing the sleeving and application training for operators.

The ability to produce world class flexographic half tone printing has seen Colpak become one of the leading manufacturers of decorative shrink sleeving in South Africa. In fact we have recently won the best on show category at the highly acclaimed Flexo Print Excellence Awards 2009 and we are due to receive an award in May 2010 in Las Vegas, America.

This same print quality flows through into our laminated bags, pouches and roll stock.

Another integral part of our business is the printing and manufacture of a sophisticated range of bottle capsules for the wine, sauce and beverage industries. Capsules for wine and sparking wine are marketed and sold by our sister company Columbit.

Colpak has many years of export experience which has grown year on year by offering consistent quality, competitively priced products and efficient service. The countries to which we are currently exporting include the United States of America, Belgium, Ireland, France, Italy, Australia and New Zealand. Colpak holds European Union certification directive 90/128/eec for food contact with plastics.

Chairman’s Announcement

Within our personal lives and business environment, we establish goals and routines, we work within the boundaries we know and find comfort in those things familiar. While seeking stability and certainty, we thrive by having a vision, a purpose, fixed principles and clear direction.

There are times however when change is inevitable. It encourages us to look for exciting opportunities and more efficient ways to continue moving forward.

The Passing of Ernest Zeh, brings a natural evolution in company leadership style, and with this, some changes. To this end, I have appointed, from the Senior Management, a team of Directors, in whom I have the utmost faith.

We reflect on the legacy which Ernest Zeh established over 72 years of successful business and appreciate all he has built; a solid foundation, great potential for further growth and most importantly, the strong work ethic, commitment and dedication of a loyal and hard working team of employees.

Our future success however will depend on forward thinking and committed individuals who continue to identify and exploit key market opportunities. We recognise that this cannot be achieved by the directors alone but that it will require a concerted team effort from all our staff.

Columbit has a clear direction and a solid, secure future.

Our Vision:
Columbit strives to be a world class market leader supplying the food and beverage industries with quality consumables, printed flexible packaging, equipment and service.

Our Mission:
As Brand Custodians we employ professional people who are enthusiastically committed to service excellence and sustainable profitability. We apply our energy and ingenuity, to build a growing, continually improving business from which all stakeholders will benefit.

Our Values:
We believe in honesty, integrity, hard work and dedication. We accept ownership of our individual responsibility and the impact of our actions on our suppliers, customers, our business and the environment.

We respect the cultural diversity of all the role players and encourage an entrepreneurial spirit.
