AmaziPro cc was founded by Richard Opperman in Cape Town, South Africa in September 2000. The company has recently celebrated its 9th year in operation. We provide sales and technical support to various printers, government departments, tertiary institutions and private companies for the products that we market.
Who we are
Richard Opperman the founding member of AmaziPro cc started his career in the paper and plastic finishing equipment industry in 1981. In 1983 he become senior field technician and later was appointed as technical manager, the position he held until the year 2000. He attended international training in Germany, Great Britain and Italy on leading products such as BÖWE, DATACARD, ORDIBEL / CP BOURG, INTIMUS, PROTECHNOCARD, CIM, MARTIN YALE and WATKISS.
In the year 2000 Richard noticed that his employer was moving in a different direction of business and decided in the best interest of existing clients and their products to start his own business. He acquired exclusive distribution for SPEDO and non-exclusive distribution for CP BOURG and DATACARD products in 2000. He ran the business with this structure until July 2006. In May 2005 on a business trip to CP BOURG in Belgium he had discussions with Mark Naude who was then employed in the export department at CP BOURG in Belgium as International Field Service Engineer.
Mark Naude a South African married to a Belgian left South Africa in 1998 to go on a one year sabbatical to Belgium. During this time Mark longed to return to South Africa and when the opportunity arose after meeting Richard he felt that he would be asset to AmaziPro cc and decided to return in 2006. A letter of intent for distribution exclusivity in South Africa was applied for.
While still living in Belgium, Mark was offered a position at CP Bourg as an International Field Service Engineer, the position he held until he returned to South Africa in June 2006.
His position at CP BOURG gave him the opportunity to travel extensively worldwide to support all CP BOURG print finishing products. During this time Mark has attended many International Trade Shows and performed many installations worldwide. Mark has acquired extensive knowledge of Off-line and On-line print on demand applications in the Digital and Litho printing industry.
Mark was also actively involved in the technical and sales training of staff of CP Bourg’s international dealer network. Mark felt that with this knowledge of CP Bourg products he would like to become more actively involved in direct sales. He longed to return to South Africa and the opportunity arose in May 2005. With the blessing and goodwill of Mr and Mrs CP Bourg this all became possible in 2006 when the AmaziPro cc exclusivity contract was ratified. Mark officially joined as a member of AmaziPro cc in July 2006.
