Pyrotec is a privately-owned and proudly South African company. We are a responsible corporate citizen which is reflected in our policy for social responsibility that focuses on previously disadvantaged communities, particularly in the surrounding areas in which we operate.


Operations are overseen from our head office and factory based in Capricorn Park in Muizenberg, Cape Town, and our commitment to our customers is supported by a national South African footprint.

We have centres in the Western Cape, Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, the Eastern Cape and Mpumalanga, as well as distributors in Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana, and local representation that covers Swaziland, Lesotho, Namibia and Mozambique.


In 2016, Pyrotec celebrated its 50th anniversary.

Established in 1966, and passed down from fathers to sons, we continue to offer industry-leading product identification solutions ranging from booklet labels and coding equipment to pharmaceutical packaging equipment and labelling machinery. Pyrotec is founded on a dedication to quality, operational reliability and service excellence.


With a long history steeped in family values, Pyrotec remains a privately-owned business. We value the strong relationships we’ve built over the last 50 years between our staff, suppliers and customers.

Being close to our customers enables us to explore specific needs and customise solutions, and our non-financial partnerships with suppliers – some spanning decades – underline the value that we attach to nurturing long-term relationships.
