A first of its kind in South Africa

MARITIME Marketing recently installed the first Chen Hsong Supermaster SM700 two platen injection moulding machine in South Africa. Accompanied by a JM258 and JM468 with robotic automation from the Chen Hsong MK6 range, the trio of machines was the perfect fit for the newly built ÓTIMA factory to support their growing product range. With a large opening stroke, The two platen Supermaster was the ideal choice for ÓTIMA’s larger range of quality houseware products including laundry baskets and dustbins. “The machine also features an advanced Beckhoff controller and an energy-saving servo system. Coupled with a small factory footprint, it ticks all the boxes as a complete, and arguably the best premium Chinese injection moulder on the market in SA,” says Marc Gerasimo, sales director at Maritime Marketing which holds the agency for Chen Hsong

and Asian Plastics in South Africa. ÓTIMA has grown substantially over the last few years with 13 new Chen Hsong injection moulding machines added to their TMC range of injection moulding machines, all supplied by Maritime Marketing. ÓTIMA launched 15 new products in 2018 with more currently in design for 2019. “Exciting times are ahead for ÓTIMA - we are currently in the planning phase of a new 8 000m2 factory and warehouse to support our growing business. Having Maritime to provide quality machines and fast support gives us the peace of mind to carry on with our core business of manufacturing,” adds Dario Simoes, MD of ÓTIMA. Maritime Marketing will be exhibiting at Propak Africa 2019, stand no. C28, Hall 5, from 12-15 March. The highly-rated Chen Hsong MK6 servo machine will be on display. www.maritimemarketing.co.za
