The Automotive Industry Development Centre (AIDC) assisted Feasible Plastics through enterprise development initiatives to break barriers in the South African automotive industry. In line with its strategic objective of ensuring competitiveness in the South African Automotive Industry, AIDC constantly looks for emerging SMMEs that could be mentored and exposed to the market to help grow their business offerings.
Feasible Plastics produces high-pressure injection mouldings of small components such as plastic handles, caps, air vents, and automotive clips.
The AIDC’s relationship with Feasible Plastics started in 2019 through the Supplier Enterprise Development Department which linked Pioneer Plastics with Feasible Plastics who subsequently mentored it as its corporate responsibility and BBBEE partner. Feasible Plastics’ David Baloyi says, “without the support from Pioneer Plastics during the COVID-19 Lockdown, Feasible Plastics would have closed down before it even started”.
Feasible Plastics aims to supply the automotive industry and so it requires ISO 9001 accreditation. The AIDC is therefore assisting with the implementation of the ISO 9001: 2015 Quality Management System which will see the business being able to secure a deal to become a supplier to an Original Equipment Manufacturer.
