Business Unit Manager – Locally Manufactured Extrusions
Michael has been involved in the Plastic Resin & Synthetic Fibre Manufacturing Industry for 10 years.
Having a passion for providing tailor made solutions for his clients, Michael recognised that his sales approach was aligned to that of Apex Polymer Solutions (formerly trading as Perspex SA) and eagerly took the opportunity to join the team. Michael has quickly become an integral part of the Apex team, building trust with colleagues and customers alike with his admirable tenacity and innate ability to communicate and connect.
Michael has recently taken on responsibility for the Local Manufacturing Business Unit, where we design and deliver top quality products, tailor-made to our diverse customer’s needs.
Apex Polymer Solutions (formerly trading as Perspex SA) has been recognised by Tetrapak, a global packaging company, as being the first company in the world to successfully extrude PolyAl into reusable sheets, which can be used in a multitude of applications.
Most large South African retail & packaging companies are showing keen interest in this product, as sales increase and extensive trials are underway.
Another R&D success is Linashield, a polyurethane lining for high-abrasion applications. Proven to outperform its counterparts, with documented case studies to share, this product is exported to the mining sector across the globe.
Francois has been in the plastics industry for over 23 years and takes great pride in the fact that Apex Polymer Solutions (formerly trading as Perspex SA) are the exclusive suppliers of the premium PERSPEX® Cast Acrylic brand. PERSPEX® is recognised as one of the best quality materials in the world and one that has stood the test of time in our unique & sometimes harsh South African climate. Often considered as the “cream of the crop” PERSPEX® offers customers a variety of application solutions and comes with a meaningful 10-year warranty. With his extensive experience, expert technical knowledge, and a good understanding of the market & competitive landscape, Francois is well geared to tackle any project, aiming at providing the correct solution for the end application.
