Established in 1976, Plastinax Austral Ltd belongs to the ENL Ltd Group of companies (www.enl.mu), one of the leading conglomerates in Mauritius. Plastinax Austral manufactures plastic injected sunglasses, protection eyewear and reading glasses for export markets, mainly to the USA and Europe. The company has a successful history of supplying superior quality eyewear products to major players in the industry (Bollé, Cébé, Vuarnet, Smith, Costa del Mar, Quiksilver, MauiJim, Alain Afflelou, Honeywell ...)
Plastinax works in close partnership with its customers to develop their collections, by offering design services and visualisation through 3D drawings and computer generated physical prototypes, before supervising the manufacturing of the moulds for mass production. In case customers cannot generate sufficient volumes to invest in their own proprietary moulds, they can also buy directly from the extensive own-design collection.
Plastinax has representatives based in the USA and Europe that are responsible for developing its markets and offering proximity assistance and services.
Plastinax has also launched its own company-brand named “Helios Polarized”. Helios Polarized is the first brand of Sunglasses "made in Mauritius", using its beautiful, multi- faceted island as a source of inspiration. The sunglasses of the Helios Polarized collection are of particular appeal to the Young and Trendy, action-oriented customer, as well as to those who value comfort and eye-protection.
