While signs of economic recovery have been evident since Covid-related restrictions were lifted, chemical industry company African Oxygen (Afrox) is cautious about the long-term effects, as “quite a few industry players did not survive the economic downturn resulting from Covid”.

“We believe we still have a long way to go before we can say we are back to normal, but we are aligned with our industry partners working towards outcomes that will contribute to economic growth,” says Afrox manufacturing industries applications business manager Johann Pieterse.

While it has been tough for many customers and companies, he says that Afrox continues to “constantly look at ways for them to streamline production and the like”.

Afrox has a service dedicated to this, taking into account the current challenging economic climate, and that the company is looking to “leverage off global parent company Linde to drive new projects, and identify opportunities through new technologies as they become available”.

However, the “exceptional quality” of Afrox’s products remains a feature of the company’s ongoing success, as it offers customers peace of mind.

The company caters for a wide range of industries and applications across South and sub-Saharan Africa, which Pieterse says is a functionality that “very few industry players can offer”.

To support this, Afrox has a team of applications specialists that focus on application solutions for customers.

“Your products mean nothing if they can’t produce successful outcomes for you in the industry,” he comments.

The company’s products, which comprise a complete range of atmospheric and non-atmospheric gases and welding products, cover a variety of industries, including mining, minerals, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, automotive, transportation and others.
