1st Vice President

 Piet Meyer, Aquatan, Pty Ltd.


Phone: +27 11 974-5271   | Send Email

Piet Meyer, Managing Director joined Aquatan in 1981. Aquatan is based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Aquatan, previously Gundle Lining Systems, for the past 50 years (and still do) supply and install Geosynthetic Materials. Our market, in addition to the very well regulated South African market include Africa and neighbouring islands. We further install our specialist products in various countries across the world. The combination of my own 35 years of geosynthetic application experience; the companies 50 years existence; the variety of geosynthetic applications over the years; Aquatan’s geomembrane manufacturing experience since Clifford Gundle (Chairman of Aquatan) developed the wide sheet blown film manufacturing in 1966 and subsequently developed the seaming mechanisms still in use today, all adds significant depth to the contribution we can make to IAGI. I understand the manufacture and composition of geomembranes which often affects the specific application and durability of the material.

I graduated (BSc) from the University of Pretoria in 1976. I understand, fully support and apply the principles of QA, QC, proper project management, respect clients requirements and believe in innovative solutions, morally sound business principles and stakeholder relationships. As a result of the above I fully subscribe to the CWT and AIC principles of the IAGI and believe that there are ways to make it even more acceptable and successful.
