In 2016, to cover the strong growth in customer demand, TOPAZ set up the fifth factory in its industrial complex in Matoto on an area of 4000 m2. This factory specializes in the blowing and printing of plastic bags, in the production of PET bottles, HDPE, and LDPE tubes for telecoms and films for packaging (packs and pallets).
In this multifunctional factory, various plastic articles are manufactured, including:
In this factory, we have a fleet of high-performance latest-generation machines including extruders, sling bag manufacturing machines, DIB (Ordinary Industrial Waste) grinders, mixers, and flexography printing machines of up to six (6) colours.…
The plant is also equipped with a laboratory for manufacturing photopolymer clichés with analogue writing of two types of a thickness (1.4 mm and 2.84 mm) generally intended for flexographic printing. Besides, for special prints, we have a negative film flashing office that writes the photopolymer plates.
Our extruders can extrude from 10 to 110 cm with thickness depending on customer demand while our printers can print more than 4 colours with width up to 990 mm.
We import our raw materials from Asia and Europe. Our raw materials are made from polymers (polyethene LLDPE and HDPE).Read More
With 108 workers, there is a factory manager and his deputy, team leaders, quality controllers, machinists, and workers. Our employees work in teams and take turns every 8 hours. The factory operates 24 hours a day, … including weekends.Read More
Regarding plastic bags and films, we proceed by inflatable extrusion, that is to say, by the formation of bubbles for the manufacture of a sheath or plastic film.Read More
We produce around 1,100 tonnes per month or around 13,200 tonnes per year, and we can store up to tonnes.
With these production and storage capacities, we can cover all local needs (domestic and industrial) in food bags, films, bottles, and fiber-optic protection tubes. We also have the margin that we export to the sub-region.
As in Manéah, the quality control in Matoto is also done in two stages: During the first stage, we take a sample of finished products at random that we analyze in our laboratory, which is equipped with very sophisticated machines in control of quality. Then, the sample validated by the laboratory is made available to permanent quality controllers. They ensure the quality and conformity of the product before packaging.
At a time when plastic is considered the evil of the century for our environment, TOPAZ is no exception to its duty, which is to protect our environment. At TOPAZ, nothing is wasted, everything is transformed. For this purpose, we have several machines equipped with a recycling and granulation system of our DIB (Ordinary Industrial Waste) in LDPE and HDPE generally called the washing and grinding and granulation line. This makes it possible to recreate the raw materials, which can be transformed or upgraded.
