KraussMaffei, one of the most respected brands in plastics machinery visited South Africa, which had just re-entered the global market following the fall of apartheid, in search of a new agent to represent the brand.

Heuft Systemtechnik approached P&CT to reassert a lost position as the local market leader in quality inspection in the bottling and food processing industries.
