As a company with a proudly South African heritage and a strong sense of social responsibility, Kansai Plascon is actively committed to investing in local communities and upliftment programmes across the country, as well as providing ongoing employee education on environmental and health issues.
In addition to brightening the lives of thousands of children by supplying paint and in some cases, funding, to various schools, Children's Homes, orphanages and crèches, Plascon's involvement with the free CID University in Johannesburg has helped to train and employ many students to carry out building and maintenance work on the campus.
We are also a member of Business and Arts South Africa, an organisation dedicated to ensuring the sustainability of arts across the region, and one of our employees assists with their mentoring programme.
Our support for the National Council of the Blind has helped to restore the eyesight of more than 600 people by providing much-needed annual funding for cataract operations.
The Wilderness Leadership Foundation, Endangered Wildlife Trust, and the SPCA have also received assistance from Plascon – and there's a grateful penguin in East London called Molly, who, thanks to Plascon's sponsorship after she was rescued from an oil spill, enjoys a happy, healthy life at the local aquarium.
