Prime Product Manufacturing has the capacity and resources for a full range of services, from single contracts to full-service operations. It is able to manufacture liquids, gels, creams, lotions and powders in batch sizes from 50 kilograms to 7,000 kilograms. All products can then be further processed on one or more of its 16 filling lines, which can handle most packaging formats, including hot-fill. Four lines are devoted to tubes; three to bottles; two to jars; two more to lip balm and kits; and one each to talcum powder and perfume. It also has a dedicated aerosol container filling line.
The production areas feature positive pressure with regulated temperature and humidity. Water is processed through a de-ionising plant with ozone purification, to ensure the water quality required for cosmetics manufacturing.
Prime is the first company in South Africa to pass the ISO TC 22716 certification for Cosmetic Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP). We have embarked on the process towards ISO 9000:2000 accreditation. These quality standards will ensure successful expansion into African and international markets.
