The power of teamwork to transform ideas into products that say ‘buy me’, is truly evidenced by the collaboration of Didget Printing, its sister company Trempak and long-time client, Jab Dried Fruit, on a project for Pick n Pay.

SARAH SONNENBERG has been appointed Synchron’s MD as her father, ALAN GILLETT, becomes chairman and semi-retires! GILL LOUBSER tells the story.
SARAH Sonnenberg is one of those admirable young women who, quite effortlessly it seems, combines several roles: managing a home, bringing up two small children, supporting her lawyer husband and – latest addition to the list – taking over the managing director’s reins at Synchron.
When asked how she manages this apparently daunting multi-tasking, Sarah asserts: ‘It’s all about maintaining a balance and being flexible.’
Extensive renovations, a revamped corporate identity, the start-up of a revolutionary new press and a fresh influx of skills – all are adding exhilaration as plasticwrap transforms to CTP flexibles, reports GILL LOUBSER.
IT’S barely three months since our last visit to Plasticwrap, but for a moment we wonder whether we’ve come to the right address! Yes, we’re certainly within Caxton & CTP’s extensive printing complex in Ndabeni, Cape Town, but the name Plasticwrap has disappeared from the signage. Once in reception, however, the reason becomes obvious – not only has the interior been completely revamped, but the company has been rebranded as CTP flexibles.
