Dask Distributors is proud to announce that it has partnered exclusively with Saint-Gobain Tapes Solutions to locally manufacture automotive bonding tapes for top OEM assembly plants in South Africa.

They are now able to manufacture and convert raw materials into bonding tapes, thanks to it having imported new, state-of-the-art machinery from CMC in Italy. Dask Distributors will be a Tier 1 supplier of Saint-Gobain bonding tapes to the likes of Toyota, VW, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Nissan, Ford and Isuzu.

Bonding tapes are crucial components when it comes to assembling modern vehicles. These tapes are engineered to cater towards the high stresses and bonding requirements of major automotive vehicle assembly lines.

“By manufacturing these tapes in SA, this will help OEMs to boost their local procurement targets. It will further help them achieve the goals set out in the SA Automotive Master Plan 2035 and earn greater incentives through the APDP. Dask’s in-house manufacturing capabilities as well as its Level 4 B-BBEE compliance make it a solid partner in this regard,” added Bomberg.

By manufacturing Saint-Gobain bonding tape components locally, Dask is set to help OEMs maintain efficient, continuous and cost-effective production lines as well as creating many new local jobs at a time when the South African economy needs it the most.
