Pyrotec restructures to focus on market strengths

Pyrotechnical Marketing (Pty) Ltd (Pyrotec), which includes TOWER, PackMedia and PackMark, has been operating as one company for the past 50 years. In the last two years, the PackVerifi, Pyrotec Finance and PackLink brands have been added to the company’s service offering.
"These new brands relate to PackMark and PackMedia, both servicing industrial sectors. However, TOWER, which incorporates office and hardware products, kid’s and signage ranges and MyTowerLabels, serves completely different industries – retail and commercial customers," says Rowan Beattie, Pyrotec’s Managing Director.
"As markets and customers continually evolve, and their requirements become more demanding and specialised, we have decided to separate TOWER from the Pyrotec brands to enable each company to focus on its strengths and continue to grow within its markets," Rowan adds.
TOWER will move to new facilities with its ownership and leadership in the hands of Managing Director, Stephen Beattie, and his current team.
As southern Africa’s largest business stationery and home label supplier, the TOWER brand is dedicated to supplying self-adhesive labels that make your life easier. "We pride ourselves on delivering the broadest range of high-quality products to meet consumers’ needs," says Stephen.
Products include general stationery labels that help consumers to identify items, provide important information, and assist with office and home organisation. TOWER also supplies A4 printable products and accessories that boast the most technologically-advanced inkjet-laser labels – the only African label brand to feature templates on Microsoft software – and a range of superior-quality photo paper. Other ranges include hardware products and signage for business and home environments, and MyTowerLabels’ simple, reliable labelling solutions for school stationery, uniforms and clothing items. "Our labels are tried and tested to mark and protect our customers’ valuables," Stephen explains.
The TOWER kid’s range of products encourages children to engage in educational activity-based fun while developing new creative skills. The products focus on building fine motor skills, encourage sensory play and promote problem-solving skills.
Products include an extensive activity based Arts ’n Crafts range, the Little Genius range that engages children’s curiosity for exploration and discovery, Splash ’n Learn bath activities, and the Reward Sticker range that focuses on building self-esteem in the classroom environment.
For the Pyrotec brands – PackMedia, PackMark, PackVerifi, Pyrotec Finance and PackLink – it’s business as usual. With their relevant teams, both General Managers, Timothy Beattie and Brandon Pearce, continue to head up PackMedia and PackMark respectively. And, with over 50 years’ experience, Rowan remains involved with Pyrotec’s day-to-day activities.
Pyrotec is renowned for its innovative production focus and long-standing relationships with customers and suppliers.

Track and trace technology ensures that brand owners can track their products throughout the supply chain and, among other things, protect their shipments against counterfeiting. To do this, product coding and marking is essential for providing traceability information that is displayed on the packaging.

According to Denny Bros Ltd, the inventor of the Fix-a-Form® booklet labels, the UK government turned to informational labelling to help tackle the growing levels of obesity among Britons. Many products now have traffic-light labels on the front of their packaging, showing the levels of ingredients, such as salt and fat, in the product. However, some have suggested that these red, amber and green designs don’t work.
Unlike the seasonal fashion designs for clothing, packaging design trends seem to stick around for some time. However, as we rapidly approach the end of 2018, there are some that are no longer finding traction on retail shelves.
