Pulp, paper and packaging

South Africa is the only African producer of pulp and paper other than Swaziland. The pulp and paper sector is well established and is capable of making a significant contribution to national economic development, particularly rural development.

Very large firms have invested substantial amounts into their infrastructure in primary processing. A network of downstream packaging companies has been established throughout the country.

The industry is now threatened by rising imports, increasing costs and global over capacity in products like newsprint, causing profitability and therefore sustainability of producing certain grades of paper in SA to be challenged going forward.

Southey Contracting has worked with the major companies in this sector for decades. The threat of further large investments in the industry stalling as companies rationalize their assets has seen a growth in demand for repair and maintenance services.
