box manufacturers“Because we are small enough to care and big enough to get the job done”

West Rand Box (PTY) Ltd has been in the corrugated boxes business for almost two decades. We are a family run business and we offer a hands on and highly personalised approach to all of our business endeavours. West Rand Box was bought out by Karl Voigt Sr. in 1994. At that stage the business only had a simple stitch machine, three employees, and all corrugated box stock was brought in from other manufacturers and then resold. Since then the business has flourished immensely and has grown to be one of the leading corrugated box manufacturers in South Africa. The current MD of West Rand Box is Karl Voigt Jr.

About the Team

Karl Voigt Jr

Karl completed his studies in Mechanical Engineering, with distinction, at the University of Pretoria in 2004. He immediately joined the family business and began his career in the West Rand Box factory, where he would learn the business at floor level. Due to his dedication and business drive, Karl played an integral role in the commissioning of the Corrugator in 2005.

The Evolution of West Rand Box

In 1994 the company consisted of just three employees and a humble stitch machine. Today the company’s current capacity, on a single shift, can convert 300 tons. This is done by means of a three colour Case-maker, a two colour Rotary die cutter, numerous plattens and manual cutters and slotters for short runs. Our delivery fleet consists of five self-owned vehicles and 1.33 ton subcontracted link truck.

Technical Support and Development

Our technical and development support is a strong part of our business ethos. We have two mechanical engineers, a highly qualified tool maker and a diesel mechanic on site. This is pivotal to our service, making sure that everything is carried out smoothly and efficiently. We own a fully equipped and dedicated engineering shop as well, and due to this, spares can be manufactured on demand. This ensures that our clients receive the best end result in a timely manner.
