The ANC welcomes the opening of a new state of the art production site by an International Plastic packaging and recycling company ALPLA Group on the 12th October 2022 in Lanseria, near Johannesburg.  The investment by the group is a key contribution to the Lanseria Smart City masterplan and reflects the President's stance to position infrastructure development and the establishment of new cities as a means to stimulate the economy and increase employment. 

Through this investment 350 jobs will be created, with an apprenticeship programme that will train 36 mechatronics and recycling technicians for ALPLA operations across southern Africa. The new premises boasts 35 000 square metres of covered production, administration and storage space, another 12 500 square metres for future expansion and 30 000 square metres of roof area covered with solar panels. The plant has one of the largest solar installations on a privately owned manufacturing building in South Africa.
