MOHAN PLC


With the rapid growth of the industrial sector due to the phenomenal development of the Ethiopian economy, the Mohan Group of Companies decided to fortify its position as a leading supplier of plastic raw materials in the country. In 2006, Mohan PLC became the first manufacturer of Ethylene-Vinyl-Acetate (EVA) based compound granules in Ethiopia.


Since then, to cater to the ever increasing demand from the rapidly growing industrial sector of Ethiopia, Mohan PLC manufactures various grades of EVA, PVC, and Rubber Compounds that are used in various industries like footwear, plastics, plastic construction material, etc. Mohan PLC also manufactures color masterbatches and filler masterbatches that are extensively used in the footwear, plastics, food and agro packaging, packaging, and furniture industries.


Using our own chemical compounds, we integrated our manufacturing process to produce a variety of footwear and shoe products such as canvas, ballerina, jogging, and sports shoes using the state of the art technology, under our brand name “Highlander”. Highlander is a name given in tribute to the great Ethiopian athletes who originate from the Ethiopian highlands.


Mohan PLC is playing an important role in furthering the government policy of import substitution by manufacturing all the above products, which were earlier imported from countries like India, China, Taiwan, Singapore, etc.

As part of the integration, we manufacture EVA and/or Rubber sheets that are part of our shoes as a component, which we also supply to other well-known and reputed shoe manufacturers.

 

A special team of technical experts and a designer design ‘Highlander’ shoes, who make our footwear look trendy, and make the shoes feel comfortable. We are proud to take Ethiopian footwear to a new level altogether making our end users feel proud to wear products proudly made in Ethiopia with reliable quality and service.



EVA Compounds

The Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) compound granules that we produce are primarily focused for the footwear industry in Ethiopia. These compounds are suitable for high quality foamed injection molded slippers, sandals, shoes, mid-soles, boots, automobile components and accessories, toys, and various other applications.

 

The EVA compounds that we manufacture are expandable and cross-linkable. We also modify them with rubbers and thermoplastic elastomers so that there is more softness, foam, tensile-strength, good compression properties and flexibility to the final products.

 

We choose the best quality of raw materials from internationally well-known companies to ensure the highest quality standards of our products.

 

We can customize our compounds to meet any special requirements of our customers. We provide technical support to our customers to ensure that they get the best results from our material.

PVC Compounds

We produce Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC) compounds that are applicable in diverse product ranges, including footwear, pipes, cables, garden hoses, and profiling. The compounds that we manufacture are suitable for both injection and extrusion machines. The compounds are formulated and produced in our modern manufacturing plant using state of the art technology.

 

 Our range of PVC compounds includes:

 

  • Air blow compounds

 

  • Transparent/crystal compounds

 

  • Compounds for manufacturing pipe fittings

 

  • Shoes and sandals compounds

 

  • Compounds for manufacturing boots

 

  • Electric cables compounds

 

  • Various other PVC applications

 

We can also customize our compounds to meet our customers’ requirements.

 



Filler masterbatch

The filler masterbatch compounds that we manufacture are uniquely effective with its enriched formulation with special impact modifying elastomers. The applications in which these filler compounds are used in is rather diverse and includes the following applications:

 

PP mats, PP-based furniture, PE and PP Injection molding, PE blow molding, PP woven sacks, PE blown film, PP extrusion, PE extrusion

The benefits that customers get using our filler masterbatch compounds are immense and include the following:

  • Increase in output in kgs/hour

 

  • Increase in tensile strength (compared to other regular filler masterbatch compounds)

 

  • Better elongation in extruded applications

 

  • Lower calcium deposits during bag formation and during tape extrusion for PP extrusion

 

  • Better flexibility for injection molded applications

 

  • Possibility of down-gauging in film applications

 

  • Helps in cost cutting of product

 

  • Possibility of higher loading of filler masterbatch compounds compared to other regular filler masterbatch compounds.

 

For special applications of customers, we can also customize our filler masterbatch compound formulation to suit customer requirements.

 

Our filler masterbatch compounds have proved to be very effective in quality and cost in producing packaging material for agricultural produces, cement bags for the construction sector, shopping bags, and household furniture applications.



Color Masterbatch

We produce quality color master batches that are customized to the needs of the convertors of PE, PP and PVC products. The different type of masterbatches that we produce includes:

 

  • Compact colour masterbatches

 

  • Transparent/crystal masterbatches

 

  • Fluorescent masterbatches

 

  • Pearlised masterbatches

 

  • Night glow masterbatches

 

These products work as an enhancement to our customers’ satisfaction and convenience for their brands and articles.
