Taurus cements a bright future

Taurus Packaging is reaping rewards by pushing the boundaries in multiwall sack and multilayer bag production, writes Karen Stretch.

WITH its roots in potato bag manufacture, Taurus Packaging has made steady progress during the last 38 years by investing in cutting edge technology, top-class premises and expert employees.

Today, this fiercely independent enterprise has emerged as the principal bag and sack manufacturer in southern Africa, converting an estimated 28 000 tons/year of paper into high-quality sacks and bags for multiple industries, and supplying more than 500 million units to customers in South Africa and neighbouring countries.

Recently Taurus Packaging invested in 3 generators, one at each of our sites to ensure uninterrupted production given the current and possible future energy crises. The generators supply sufficient power to sustain our entire current production capacity as well as future expansions.
