How does SAVA serve you? Why become a member?
Three new members have decided to join The Southern African Vinyls Association (SAVA) after hearing about the work the association is doing through its Product Stewardship Programme (PSP). SAVA is proud to welcome CJO Chemicals, Eastman Chemicals and Betafence South Africa.
SAVA currently represents close to 80% of the local PVC industry and boasts 34 members and is ideally positioned within the local plastics industry with representation on the Recovery Action Group (RAG), the Packaging Council of South Africa (PACSA) and the Plastics|SA Sustainability Council to ensure that its members are represented on a broader platform.
As the representative body of the Southern African vinyls industry, SAVA also participates in knowledge transfer activities with the Australian Vinyls Council, The Global Vinyls Council, Vinyls Plus and other international organisations. Its main purpose is representing its members’ interests in the Southern Africa region to create consumer confidence within the industry and to develop and sustain markets for the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) business.
“SAVA’s members are given a voice, and they are therefore willing to invest energy, time and money to promote the vinyls industry, to share ideas and to address concerns. We offer our members a platform where they are equipped to protect their investments through knowledge. They share a camaraderie that is envied by others and most of them are reaping the rewards of membership through constant business coming their way”, says Delanie Bezuidenhout, SAVA’s CEO.
SAVA makes it clear that its ongoing success is dependent on the backing and participation of its members.
