Our integrity is our reputation

At Pyrotec we pride ourselves in our reputation which is that of integrity. We believe in respecting human rights and strongly oppose the use of illegally forced or bonded labour as well as human exploitation amongst all other forms of unfair treatment of workers. It is of utmost importance for us to uphold the labour law by avoiding inhumane labour such as: exploitation, physical punishment, abuse, involuntary servitude or any other form of mistreatment. We commit ourselves to protecting the environment by doing our part in preserving the earth’s resources, in addition we adhere to all the industry standards and regulations regarding animal care, handling and welfare. Only products that are in accordance with good manufacturing, distribution and professional service will be handled by us.

Supporting Skills Development

As the company’s brands continue to grow, Rowan focuses on his leadership role and supporting his highly-experienced managers.

With his team efficiently running Pyrotec’s day-to-day operations, Rowan immerses himself in the company’s Skills Development Fund that over the past three years, has sponsored over 425 individuals in South Africa, is both internal and external – at a cost of R12 990 000.

The training includes apprenticeships, bursaries, learnerships, diplomas, certificates, and degrees.

The majority are not employed at Pyrotec but our reward is seeing so many young people, connected to Pyrotec in different ways, growing their knowledge and experience, and moving up the business ladder.

We believe that lifelong learning keeps us innovative and that education is vital to placing Africa on a path of sustainable growth and development.

Cultural Diversity and Skill

Together, We Grow, Pyrotec’s mission, percolates through all operational areas of our business, and our watchwords – quality, operational efficiency, innovation and communication – resonate with our staff. 


From a technical point of view, each year Pyrotec PackMark’s technicians receive the opportunity to attend training abroad at Markem-Imaje and ALTech’s facilities in Europe, depending on the equipment and new technologies being released. 

This ensures their expertise remains up to date with the latest technological advances in our fields and equips them with the skills needed to provide input into the development of the department and add value to our business objectives. It also ensures service excellence, delivered by staff who feel empowered and have the skills and efficiency to assist customers to achieve their operational goals.

Besides the training our staff receive at our principals’ premises, they also benefit from meeting other distributors and sharing knowledge, best practice and experiences with their global counterparts.

We believe that staff training is vitally important for the growth of our business and to continue setting the industry benchmark in terms of service excellence, technological advancements, and delivering industry-leading equipment and products. We promote a feeling of value for our staff and encourage personal growth and recognition as their skills develop. 


For us, innovative is focused on production, and constantly questioning the status quo by pushing the boundaries.


Rowan believes that any organisation adopts the characteristics of its leader. He values above-board business dealings and steadfastly encourages employees to earn the respect of all stakeholders, and to treat each other with dignity. He also inspires high levels of integrity and asserts that moral principles govern actions. Trust is built on a confidence in each staff member’s reliance on their own qualities – truth, fairness, honour and ability.
