Maizey Plastics kicked off its national ‘Working with Plexiglas’ roadshow in June with training workshops set to be hosted in 15 locations nationally. The campaign, aimed at providing valuable technical information on how to machine, fabricate and convert Plexiglas, kicked off in Polokwane and from there, the team travelled to Nelspruit, Witbank, Richards Bay, Pinetown and East London.

Rikki Maizey, Managing Director at Maizey Plastics, commented on the value these workshops add to the industry,  ‘As the official Plexiglas distributor in Southern Africa we feel it is important to educate our customers on the scope of the Plexiglas range and the ease of fabrication. These workshops will assist in sharing easy to execute techniques which will allow non-fabricated focussed businesses to extend their applications offering. The response to our workshops have been fantastic and compliments from our customers overwhelming. More workshops will be held throughout July and interested parties should book their seats to avoid disappointment. This is a golden opportunity to get sales and factory staff involved.’

For 70 years, PLEXIGLAS has been the acrylic material of choice offering the best quality and endless design possibilities. Maizey Plastics and Evonik Industries invites interested Plexiglas acrylic users to their free Plexiglas Workshops.
