Small-cap Insimbi Industrial says it intends to sell its plastics business in a bid to streamline its operations, expecting all relevant processes to be finalised by the end of August 2022.

The group, valued at R400m on the JSE, has a plastics business that  manufactures containers for various industries including the chemical, agricultural and food industries. It contributed less than 1% of Insimbi’s R6.06bn revenue for its year to end-February.

The firm said on Wednesday it was looking to improve its efficiency and move away from “non-performing marginal activities”. Talks with labour unions have already begun, and the firm will now commence active engagements on a sale.

Insimbi also supplies alloys to the steel sector, as well as ceramic refractory linings to the cement, paper and pulp, steel and platinum industries. It operates from premises in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban, with local sales making up about 85% of revenue.
