We’ve been informed by several of our customers in the printing, packaging and auto ID sectors that they have obtained Essential Service Provider Certificates issued by CIPC, allowing them to continue operating during the lockdown period. As a result, Kemtek has also now obtained the necessary certificate to supply and support the industry in the following regions: Johannesburg, Pretoria, Port Elizabeth, Durban and Cape Town.

Kemtek Essential Service Provider Certificate

Within the confines of this certification, Kemtek will support print companies and packaging manufacturers who have been granted and issued an Essential Service Certificate with stock supply (where available). We’ll also be attending to service issues for these companies.

We invite you to email your Kemtek regional team with your order requirements. Please also attach a copy of your official Essential Services Certificate as issued by CIPC.

Not a current Kemtek customer? No problem – we accept COD orders!
