Flexitrade was established in 1996, starting off with selling packaging products to Cape Town restaurants, we soon realized that with our experience and sales skills we could broaden our horizons and branched out into the bigger packaging industry. It is from here that we discovered the world of Industrial Packaging and with that started distributing plastic bags and sheeting, cartons, tapes, palletwraps and many other general packaging lines. Our whole business changed and we boomed!

Flexitrade started off as a small family business, founded by the Rautenbach family, and has grown into one of the biggest and best suppliers of packaging products in the Cape Town area. We hold an extensive range of packaging materials and we’re committed to offering first class service to all our customers.

We grew from one little truck to a large fleet, from a little warehouse to an acre under roof. We’ve moved three times and are proud of our new Packaging Towers, at No. 1 Harris Drive, Ottery. We love our new home. It’s big but we know big isn’t better- it’s what happens inside our walls that counts.

Our management is very hands-on and we place a lot of emphasis on relationship building. We’ve gained a reputation for being responsive and reliable with a very stable and loyal customer base.

Our Sales Representatives and Internal Sales staff have been product trained and will be able to assist you with any enquiry you may have, enabling you to make the easiest and most efficient choice of packaging materials for your requirements.

Naturally price is always important but our goal is to be the best on service. When we started, our clients were used to ‘next day delivery’ but we always try to deliver on the same day as the order.
