ALPLA entered the Southern African market in 2014 when it opened a production facility in Kempton Park. The African continent is an attractive growth market, which is why in 2017, ALPLA acquired Boxmore Packaging to increase its footprint in Southern Africa. With Boxmore Packaging, ALPLA acquired a leader in PET preforms, bottles and closures with 9 production locations and 1000 employees.
In this region, ALPLA offers a wide range of off-the-shelf bottle solutions as well as speciality packaging for the food, personal care, home care, chemicals, cleaning and pharmaceutical sectors.
