Marketing

1. Business Strategy

Virgin Creatives’ strategy is to serve niche markets of the plastic industry. There are many untapped potential markets in South Africa, the African continent and the world that desire high-quality goods, but do not know where to source them from. Through our ability to customise and produce different shapes, colours and size of any virgin plastic molded ware; Virgin Creatives’ marketing strategy will alleviate this problem.
We only use premium-grade virgin polyethylene to manufacture our product range. The powder used for manufacturing these products is locally manufactured by South Africa’s largest Manufacturer and Supplier of Colour Compounded Roto-Moulding Powders in the Southern African region and overseas countries. The manufacturer is a member of ARMSA (Association of Roto-Moulders Southern Africa) and ARMO (Association of Roto-Moulders Organisation) which is the World Roto-Moulding Organisation.
Virgin polyethylene has not been processed before and is free from contaminates and impurities. By using this superior product it gives us, Virgin Creatives, complete control over the quality of the items we manufacture. Recycled plastic can contain contaminating substances such as dirt and oils which have been accumulated in its former product life cycle. These pollutants can result in weaker mechanical properties and inconsistency in the quality of the polyethylene. Virgin polyethylene is more durable, has greater stress resistance and gives Virgin Creatives complete control over the quality of products we produce.
Throughout the world virgin materials that are Rotomoulded from (Linear Low Density Polyethylene) LLDPE which can be UV Stabilised from four (4) years up to as long as twenty (20) years in certain cases. This is the standard we unequivocally have adopted in ensuring that we continue with the manufacturing and supply of excellent quality and interminably durable plastic products to our clients. These LLDPE Roto-Moulding Powders conform to World Standards regarding FDA and Portable Water regulations.
All base Polymers are sourced from Sasol Polymers which is a World recognised Polymer and Chemicals Manufacturer with operations all over the globe. The Base Polymers are sourced from Sasol Polymers and conform to similar grades produced by Exxon, Total Chem, Dow, Formosa and many other Polymer Producers around the world.

Culture

1. Surviving harsh climates

Products built by Virgin Creatives survive some of the harshest conditions known. The mandatory standard of subjecting all our product range to laboratory testing ensures that our range of products is built to withstand extreme elements of icing, gravel, cyclonic winds, salt-spray, prolonged UV exposure and tropical humidity. The Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) compounds used to manufacture our products are especially developed to survive harsh environments and destructive effects of the sun’s ultra violet rays. By using UV-stabilised polyethylene, our product range is given additional protection from the long-term degradation effects of UV exposure. Rotational moulding of polyethylene allows Virgin Creatives o manufacture complex shapes which are moulded in one piece making a robust product with excellent impact strength. In the unlikely event of damage the product can be easily repaired.

2. Minimal Maintenance

Virgin plastic products require minimal maintenance. These plastic types never require painting because they are manufactured using coloured pigments which permeate all of the way through the plastic.

3. Eco-friendly

The increasing awareness of the need to protect our environment for future generations has led to more and more consumers demanding environmentally friendly products. Innovations and advances in technology used by the plastics industry are helping Virgin Creatives to contribute to a more sustainable world. Many pigments used in the production of other polyethylene products are made from heavy metals such Lead, Cadmium and Chromium which, even in small concentrations, are toxic to humans and the environment. There have even been links between heavy metals and a range of health issues such as cancer, kidney disease and learning disabilities. Even though there are no regulations in place restricting the use of heavy metals in pigments, Virgin Creatives has made a decision to only use polyethylene which is heavy metal free and contains absolutely no toxic chemicals. By making this choice, Virgin Creatives is making a difference and contributing to a safer environment by reducing the risk of air and water pollution throughout the roto-moulding process At the end of their working life products that contain heavy metals cannot be recycled and, even if there are only traces of toxic heavy metals, the used product cannot be burnt for heat recovery, reprocessed or even buried. Virgin Creatives products are made from recyclable materials and it is recommended that they be recycled at the end of their working life.
