While many successful businesses around the world have started with a good idea, a garage and hard work, few have grown as fast or as effectively as Prime Product Manufacturing. Currently based in Pelindaba, 25 kilometres from Pretoria, its roots go back to the mid-1990s when it was established as a corporation in 1997 by Mike Rigby and Koos Basson, who remain senior directors. It now occupies a 13,000 square metre factory on the NECSA Eco-Industrial facility
Prime Product Manufacturing produces a number of brand-name items for companies such as INCO LABS; Tiger Brands; Annique; Avon Justine and Sh’zen.
With the flexibility to manufacture a wide variety of liquids, gels, creams, lotions and powders in batch sizes from 50kg to 5000kg, the firm’s manufacturing and filling capabilities are comprehensive.
Furthermore, Prime is able to further process products on one or more of the 16 filling lines available, which can handle “almost any packaging format imaginable”. A dedicated line is also on hand for the filling of aerosol containers.
