ABOUT US

Molan Pino South Africa was founded in February of 2002, after being approached by MBSA who had the need for suitable local EPP component suuplier. 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 on the Westbank of East London within the MBSA premises, but in November of 2007 relocated to new larger state of the art facilities in the ELIDZ. This all materialized at an opportune time and Molan Pino has since become an approved supplier to Nissan S.A and VWSA 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 and supply to MBSA is expected to start in July of 2009. At Molan Pino we are constantly looking for new opportunities. As the General manager now puts it “The sky is the limit”
