SAVA: The Southern African Vinyls Association

The Southern African Vinyls Association is a representative body for the local PVC industry fulfilling an active role in the sustainability of the industry. With the support of its members, SAVA addresses PVC related issues and constructively engages with stakeholders and role-players to create a positive environment for a vibrant and sustainable PVC industry. 


SAVA is dedicated to enhancing the growth and protecting the stature of the Southern African PVC industry.


If you are the type of person who defines your business, stays up to date with developments in your industry and builds your relationships on sound business values, then you are most probably the type of business person who would enjoy rubbing shoulders with others in your industry.  

Belonging to an industry association offers you bargaining power, networking opportunities, access to information and the opportunity to stay on top of industry developments.  To be a successful part of an industry implies accepting a responsibility towards others in that industry to join forces, to share ideas and to turn ideas into action.

The Southern African Vinyls Association (SAVA) is the representative body of the Southern African vinyl industry.  SAVA is ideally positioned within the local plastics industry with representation on the Recovery Action Group (RAG), the Packaging Council of South Africa (PACSA) and the Plastics SA Sustainability Council to ensure that its members are represented on a broader platform.  SAVA also participates in knowledge transfer activities with the Australian Vinyls Council, The Global Vinyls Council, Vinyls Plus and other international organisations.

SAVA’s main purpose is representing our members’ interests in the Southern Africa region to create consumer confidence within the industry and to develop and sustain markets for the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) business.  PVC is a chlorinated hydrocarbon polymer and most of us use it every day, therefore it is important to promote vinyl business interests in a responsible and sustainable manner.

Our association is dependent on the backing and participation of our members.  SAVA’s members have a voice; they are willing to invest energy, time and money to promote the vinyl industry, to share ideas and to address concerns.   We offer our members a platform where they are equipped to protect their investments through knowledge.  They share a camaraderie that is envied by others and most of them are reaping the rewards of membership through constant business coming their way.
