Hubron and Performance Colour Systems – a new force in Africa

Hubron (International) Limited is pleased to announce its new distribution partnership agreement with Performance Colour Systems Pty.

The new partnership becomes effective January 2015. Keith Simms, Managing Director of Hubron visited South Africa in January to meet with the Performance team and explore growth opportunities.

The Performance Colour Systems team hosted technical presentations in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town, announcing the partnership between these two Masterbatch giants. Keith led the countywide visit with in-depth discussions about Black Masterbatch and related technologies.

Hubron has a black masterbatch manufacturing capacity of 35,000 tons per annum and has been supplying the South African market since 1997. The link with Performance will further ensure that our customers have additional stock locally available throughout South Africa, combined with excellent technical support.

Hubron has an extensive range based upon many different polymer carriers, which are suitable for a wide variety of applications and processes, including pipe, fibres, film, sheet, compounding and injection moulding.

Chad Francis, who heads up the PCS organisation mentioned just how important it is to stayed ahead of the technology frontier and keep on learning.

“Our suppliers, and the partnerships we create through these relationships are the ultimate differentiator”. Chad goes on to say that new ways of making quality material are a must for PCS to remain leaders in their industry.

The Hubron/Performance partnership is an exciting one, which could be a game changer in the Africa plastics market. The manufacture of granular Masterbatch is a challenging technology and these kinds of relationships are welcomed, and most certainly needed in South Africa.
