This is Nampak

Nampak's origins date back over 100 years to when Hertzberg Mulne, a manufacturer of corrugated boxes, started business in Cape Town. Nampak itself was established in 1963 with the merger of Amalgamated Packaging Industries and National Packaging.

We were listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in 1969 as National Amalgamated Packaging (Nampak). 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the listing.

Through the acquisition of Metal Box Limited in the 1980s and subsequent acquisitions and greenfield investments, Nampak has become the largest packaging company in Africa.
