PRESS RELEASE: When recently contracted to supply HDPE injection-moulded fittings by a mine in Burkina Faso, Rendifield turned to its fellow South African thermoplastic piping specialist, Plasti-Tech, for a range of German-made fittings from specialist manufacturer Bänninger.
Founded in 2011, Rendifield specialises in the manufacture, supply and fabrication of thermoplastic HDPE, PP and PVC piping systems. Plasti-Tech is the sole distributor of the Bänninger range of pipes and fittings suitable for all areas of industrial application locally.
According to Mike Enslin, managing director of Rendifield, the order was placed with Plasti-Tech in late November 2017 for importation of HDPE injection moulded fittings from German manufacturer, Bänninger. A key challenge was the stringent lead time for the supply of the order, which was urgently needed for a processing plant expansion project at the gold mine.
"A key challenge was that the order was placed with Plasti-Tech just before the year-end shutdown and the order lead time was a key concern. However, Plasti-Tech managed to supply the order on time as per the quoted lead time," said Enslin.
Rendifield took delivery of its order in late February this year.
