Focussing initially on South Africa in the 1990’s , the Company then expanded its activities very strongly in the 2000’s to include central and east Africa, covering a range of expanding countries experiencing high growth rates, young populations and increasing urbanisation – all factors influential in driving polymer demand. As a result MBT South Africa is well attuned to politico-economic developments and the changing nature of the polymer supply demand balance across the region.
