A family-owned chemicals exporting business has invested more than R9 million in a new hydrochloric acid filling plant at Mkondeni, following a decision to locate the facility in Pietermaritzburg rather than Cato Ridge or Durban.

The product is used in gold mining operations, offshore oil-field operations, galvanising plants and water systems. The company procures the product from ncp Chlorchem in Kempton Park, a producer of chlor-alkali products. "They have supported our export programme immensely," said Klopper. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
