The name Plexicor is synonymous with quality and the philosophy of the company is to manufacture to the highest standards. The goal is to produce the best service and competitive prices are equally important however and the customer satisfaction and loyalty is first prize. Now, sixty three years since humble beginnings nothing has changed and our commitment is still to produce the best.
The company was established in 1952 and in the course of the last 63 years it has been involved in virtually all aspects of acrylic manufacturing. Since the early seventies however sanitaryware has dominated to such a degree that Plexicor has focused completely on this industry.
It has designed in-house most of its own machinery and tooling. So successful did it become in this area that complete turnkey plants were designed and again produced in-house, for Australia, Israel and England. This expertise has also extended to the chemistry of plastics and at one stage Plexicor owned a factory producing acrylic sheeting. It was subsequently sold to an AECI subsidiary which is now part of the Lucite International Group. This relationship prospered and together with AECI, Plexicor developed a material called Karran, specifically for the manufacture of kitchen sinks. It has been a major export success and markets included the UK, Australia and the United States.
All products are manufactured locally at the Plexicor factory in Meyerton, in the Vaal Triangle. Plexicor, together with Libra Bathrooms and Vaal Sanitaryware form the Sanitaryware Division of the Grohe Dawn Water Technology group of companies.
