Uniplate History

Uniplate was established in 1996 by Uniplate South Africa, which is now a part of TÖNNJES International Group, a world leader in secure vehicle identification.

Today, we pride ourselves on being innovative and leading professionals in our industry. At Uniplate, we specialise in number plate printing equipment, leveraging our extensive knowledge to manufacture our own specially designed equipment exclusively for the number plate industry.

Global Network

Our production line benefits immensely as we work closely with the manufacturing branches of Uniplate South Africa and TÖNNJES Germany to achieve results. This global synergy enables us to deliver high-quality products and personalised services, tailored to meet your business needs, all while maintaining a commitment to competitive and fair pricing.

At Uniplate, we guarantee everything you need to create your own number plates, without ever compromising on quality.

What We Provide

Even though we’ve been running for nearly 30 years, Uniplate has endured numerous changes. Becoming a part of the TÖNNJES International Group was a major advancement for us, all while continuing to retain our core values at the heart of everything we do: offering a personal feel to our work environment and our customer relationships.

As well as our extensive range of products, including PMMA acrylic plates, printers and other components, we also provide a detailed legislation feed. If this wasn’t enough, we also have a constantly updated and growing information hub, designed for our customers to find the answers to all their questions easily and quickly.

If there is anything that you can't find the answer to, then please don't hesitate to contact us using one of our easy-to-use contact forms, or feel free to contact us via email or telephone.

We are always more than happy to help.
