We assume responsibility – with competence and experience.

Plastic is a material that has been enabling humanity to make ground-breaking progress for more than 100 years: in medicine and in the household, in communication and in mobility.

We work today on the topics of tomorrow. After all, plastic is the material of the future – and has been for more than 100 years.
