History

Vacuform is a privately owned company that was established in 1974 by Hans Combe and Eberhard  rammel. They owned and ran the company for 27 years until March 2000.
The company originally concentrated on packaging and display items. Soon the emphasis changed to the otor industry and in 1984 the company was relocated to it’s own purpose built factory in Rosslyn, Pretoria.

The new millennium saw the purchase of the business by two new partners, Molefe Mokgatle and Anthony Taylor. The transaction required the creation of a new entity –Vacuform 2000 (Pty) Ltd – which is owned equally by the partners.

Future

Since Molefe Mokgatle and Anthony Taylor took over the business, the number of workers increased from 35 to over 160 (2018).

Also for the future we want to expand our business concentrating on our main fields: vacuum-forming and blow-moulding.
