We never thought we’d see the day that we bid farewell to Annabe! With three decades of experience in the South African plastics industry under the belt, Annabe leaves us as General Manager to spend more time on her small holding (with 1 cat, 2 dogs, 10 geese, 15 chickens, a barn owl couple, a family of spotted eagle owls, a mongoose and a teenager son and husband) and pursue her own interests.
Annabe was instrumental in setting up SAPRO and has served our board, membership and stakeholders passionately over the years. Most members have been privileged to engage with Annabe at some point and pick her brain around fault finding, optimum material selection and more. Annabe holds superb theoretical knowledge, experience and passion for anything plastics, is skilled at connecting people and assisting new entrants into the industry …and will still be available to us as an industry via her consultancy Plastix911.
We will be formally saying farewell to Annabe at our AGM, and hope we see members in attendance en masse to do so, but for now “Sterkte Annabe!”
