Proplastics opens a new branch in Gweru


Proplastics limited officially launched its new branch in Gweru on the 14th of June 2019. Addressing delegates at the official commissioning of the company’s Gweru branch, the Midlands Minister of State for Provincial Affairs, Larry Mavima, said the retooling of the company has created new performance efficiencies that will directly benefit the customer. He said the opening of the new Gweru branch was going to create employment for locals.

Proplastics Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Kudakwashe Chigiya, said his company’s strategic vision was continued expansion to tap into the local and regional markets. “Going into the future we don’t look at ourselves as just Zimbabwean manufactures. We want to be competitive regionally, we also want to export to countries such as South Africa. At the moment we are only exporting into Zambia and DRC,” he said.

“Over the past years, our Midlands market was being serviced by the Bulawayo branch but we realized that there was huge potential in the region as evidenced by increasing sales volumes. Therefore, we then decided to set up here for the convenience of our ever-growing customers.”
