About Us

TEKCO is a family business that was established in 2005 by two brothers to service the wine industry with quality packaging solutions. Today, more than 10 years later, TEKCO is the proud employers of more than 80 employees, with a manufacturing plant and sales office situated in Robertson in the Western Cape with another sales office in Cape Town. Although we still focus on the wine industry, our ever increasing product range also service other industries including fruit, olive & health.

  • Superior and consistent quality products
  • Exceptional customer service
  • Reliable, on-time supply
  • The best possible price
  • Continuous innovation in terms of new materials, designs and overall packaging solutions
  • In the exceptional case of non-performance in any of the above (since the world unfortunately isn’t perfect),  we promise to pull all of our available resources in order to assist you and deliver your order ASAP.

Our website serves as an overview and explanation of our extensive and diverse range of print, product and design options. We invite you to browse through these options, call us for a no-obligation quotation, or request that one of our experienced sales representatives visit you to find the perfect packaging solution to suit your needs.

We look forward to playing our part in growing your business.

supporter of the Anna Foundation
Apr 12, 2016

TEKCO is a proud supporter of the Anna Foundation – an organisation who assist disadvantaged schools and communities by providing academic, social and environmental support.

The Anna Foundation aims to address the educational and social needs of rural school children and offer life-long learning to build positive self-worth, self-respect and core values.

This is achieved through their professionally designed “3 R’s Programme: Reading, Running and Right-ing” which is implemented in the afternoons and involves education, sports and life skills programmes (implemented through drama). The Anna Foundation also trains local farm women to implement the 3 R’s programme, giving them the skills needed in order to be confident in their roles as facilitators.

Especially since most of the current children being benefited by the Anna Foundation’s efforts are situated in the Langeberg region, where TEKCO is also based, it is our privilege to have supported Anna Foundation in 2015 and 2016 and we look forward to supporting them in future as well.

flying the TEKCO flag high
Apr 12, 2016

Our team flying the TEKCO flag high in their respective sport disciplines!

It is hard to imagine, but our team to have lives outside of boxes! Although many of us have hobbies which we are fanatic about, two members of our team deserve special mention:

Jack van Wyk, one of the sales representatives in our Cape Town office don’t just ride bicycle to get somewhere… he does it to get there FAST!

This is proven by some of his latest results:

  • 2015 PPA One Tonner (170km) – 12th out of 1242 riders with a time of 04:25:04
  • 2015 Stellenbosch Cycle Tour (101.6km) – 17th out of 3536 riders with a time of 02:20:13
  • 2016 Bouckaert-Soenen Road Race (126km) – 39th out of 494 riders with a time of 03:11:28
  • 2016 Tour de PPA (110km) – 10th out of 913 riders with a time of 02:48:14
  • 2016 Cape Town Cycle Tour (109km) – 76th out of 28 655 with a time of 02:40:25

Billy Botha, TEKCO’s factory manager, spends every free weekend in the water, doing free-diving spearfishing. The rest of the team jokes that he hides his gills well, since he can hold his breath for longer than 3 minutes – enough time to hunt fish of between 2 and 25kg! That is if the shark doesn’t steal the fish… or his spear gun (true story!).

From 9-16 April 2016 Billy took part in the National Spearfishing Championship after he ended up in the second position after all the provincial trials.

Poor weather conditions made it extremely difficult for the competition to go ahead since poor visibility below the surface can mean two things: Either one of the other competitors can mistake your leg for a fish and shoot it (OUCH!) or secondly… you may not see the shark approaching you, which is even worse.

So congratulations to the guys who had the home ground advantage. We are still super proud of Billy’s results and grateful that he still has both arms and legs!

Java MTB Challenge
Apr 12, 2016

TEKCO had the privilege of being part of this project in the Robertson Wine Valley as one of its sponsors, since its inception in 2013.

“Truly a community effort” is how this event is described on their website. Taking place at Van Loveren in the Robertson Wine Valley, it not only has wine tourism benefits (a conservative estimate of R1.5 million spent in the area over the course of the weekend), but also raises funds for the local community.

With 80% of the work force at the event consisting of teachers and parents of the beneficiary schools doing everything from marking the routes to manning the food stalls and water points, this project shows anything is possible if you put your heart in it.

In 2013 a total of R40 000, in 2014 a total of R100 000 and in 2015 a total of R120 000 was raised for beneficiaries which currently includes: Robertson Preparatory School, Ashton Primary School, Robertson Primary School, Rotary, Wakkerstroom & Goudmyn Farm Schools. In 2015, a trail run was also introduced and a total of 1006 athletes took part. We look forward to sponsoring and taking part again in 2016!
