PETER Cawcutt has returned to the equipment supply market with the new company, ZAMachinery, which supplies recycling and film extrusion systems from Polystar Machinery of Taiwan.

Polystar Taiwan specialises in the production of plastic recycling machinery and is recognized as one of the top recycling machine manufacturers in Taiwan today.

Cawcutt, who was originally with Maritime Marketing in Johannesburg, until 2014, had to take a back seat due to health reasons but recently returned to the industry; he now plans to put his many years of experience in equipment supply to good use.

“In my 45 years in the industry, the major factors for effective machine use have been the balance between quality, price and output – and the relationship with the buyer. And the cheapest is never the best,” said Peter.

Polystar produces pelletizing lines as well as blown film lines, up to ABA.

“Polystar’s machines are closest to European standard but at less than half the price. It has sold over 1000 recycling lines worldwide,” he added (Peter’s son Jeff runs Zerma Africa, the supplier of shredders and granulators).
