ABOUT US

Molan Pino South Africa was founded in February of 2002, after being approached by MBSA who required a suitable local EPP component supplier. The production of semi-rigid EPP components commenced in June 2002 with supply to MBSA following in July of the same year.

Molan Pino was originally located in Westbank, East London within the MBSA premises, but in November of 2007 relocated to a larger, state-of-the-art facility in the EL IDZ. This all materialised at an opportune time and Molan Pino has since become an approved supplier to Nissan SA and VW SA, to whom they supply a full range of EPP components.

In January of 2009 Molan Pino imported all necessary machinery for the manufacture of smaller cold cured flexible low density PUR components. Supply to MBSA started in July of 2009. Looking ahead, Molan Pino are constantly looking for opportunities and partnerships. We’re proud to service a substantial client base and hope to continue building trusting engagements with new businesses.
