|Nampak Limited is Africa's leading diversified packaging manufacturer and it has been listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE Limited) since 1969. It has operations in Angola, Botswana, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe as well as the United Kingdom and Ireland. It offers packaging products across metal, glass, paper and plastics substrates. Nampak is the market leader in the supply of beverage cans in South Africa and Angola and a leading supplier of beverage cans in Nigeria. Nampak's strategy is to unlock value from the base business in South Africa and accelerate growth in the rest of Africa.
In recent years Nampak expanded its footprint in the rest of Africa (excluding South Africa); with the commissioning of a greenfield beverage can plant in Angola in April 2011 and acquisition of Alucan in Nigeria (now Bevcan Nigeria) in February 2014 being the major investments. It also completed the recapitalisation programme of Bevcan South Africa of converting beverage can lines from tinplate to aluminium in 2016, which commenced in 2012. In 2015 Nampak exited a number of its low-margin South African businesses to unlock value from its base business.
The rest of Africa operations now contribute more than 50% to group trading profit. Nampak remains confident of the demographic fundamentals underpinning long-term packaging growth in the rest of Africa.
The group's world-class research and development facility based in Cape Town provides technical expertise and support to Nampak's businesses as well as to its customers. Nampak supports the recycling, reuse and recovery of used packaging.
