The Team

The idea of Namibia Plastics was conceived around a fire in 2010, when two friends, Wernich Meyer and Johan Struwig celebrated New Year’s.

Established in 2011 from a home-based office with only one cell phone and a laptop, Johan spent several months trying to win local clients, but with little success. Despite this, he continued to pursue his vision of growing a successful business that would impact the local manufacturing industry, support government’s growth-at-home dream, and ultimately improve the economy at large.

The company officially became “bankable” in 2014, and started employing people, with a 250 sqm warehouse and branches in Windhoek and Walvis Bay.

In 2017, Namibia Plastics started the construction of a 2,660 sqm state-of-the-art manufacturing plant at Brakwater aimed at closing the gap of an estimated 50% of plastic imported from abroad.

We are committed to empower everyone around us to grow, develop and succeed in order to enhance the lives of our collective team and valued customers.
