Kealmeca Products (Pty) Ltd was established in 2013 – it was the logical extension to the trading activities of its international associates’ activities dating back to 2000.
Thus the primary focus is on the domestic distribution within South Africa of products in which considerable experience had been built up over many years.
Kealmeca has also managed to establish some export markets to countries such as Zimbabwe, DRC and Nigeria.
The company is involved in the trading and marketing of a selective range of plastic resins and certain industrial chemicals. This is based on strong sourcing competences and long standing relationships with companies in Korea, Brazil, The Netherlands, Singapore, China and Argentina – amongst others.
Customer relationships are a core aspect in the company’s success, there is a strong “partnership” ethic in the business. We aim at very high service levels, and we focus on our niches.
We aim to stick to our strengths, the company is well placed in certain niche products of high quality.
