Most of our companies and plants are relatively new and well invested. The high technology level, combined with far-reaching production and technological coordination, provides cost-effectiveness, high and uniform quality and the ability to smoothly relocate production among the units. 

We are seeing that customers want to move towards “greener polymers”, and I am convinced that our know-how and experience to use bio-based and recycled materials, will create advantages for us, our customers and the environment.
