And so our story began…
A company that first opened its doors in 2015, Plastimed is a proudly South African story of humble beginnings and solid determination.
Back before the titles of Director and CEO, Mohammed Rishaad Joosab had two goals, to rise to the challenge of creating a successful business and to be able to empower other South Africans. He realised the best way to do this was to use the knowledge he gained through his degree in Business Management and Marketing, to create his own uniquely South African corporate company. One that would fulfil his aim of uplifting poverty in South Africa by helping small businesses prosper.
With this intention he began his first venture into producing and bottling sauces. A good first business to begin with, it helped Mohammed Rishaad realise that there was a growing demand for the bottles he packaged, rather than the sauces themselves. A budding entrepreneur, he saw this as a golden opportunity and redirected his focus into a new company, Plastimed.
The plastic industry is a daunting space to one who isn’t familiar with it. Mohammed Rishaad found he had an advantage as he had grown up learning about the plastic industry from his father Imran, who had a wealth of knowledge from his experience of over 30 years in the Plastic Manufacturing sector. Although his father had since changed business interests and was no longer in the manufacturing industry, he agreed to step in as an expert consultant to help Mohammed Rishaad understand the market and its niches completely.
With this knowledge and a hunger for success, Mohammed Rishaad did his first few trades in 2015. The journey to date has not been an easy one especially for someone who was still new to the business world.
With the guidance and advice of his business savvy father and God’s immense grace and mercy, Plastimed has grown from a small, inconspicuous company to one that’s now supplying both home businesses and large corporate companies locally and internationally.]
So what is it that makes Plastimed unique?
For our start up entrepreneurs our aim is to help start small businesses in South Africa and grow them by supplying packaging services to customers.
