Description

Description: 

The history of the Italian company begins in Puglia in 1992.

Over the years, the company has diversified its production in order to offer more services while maintaining the care of processing.
The production capacity of the plants is over 850 tons/month.
For years the company has been using regenerated material obtained from the processing of industrial waste in suitably treated polyethylene.
The aim is to reduce the consumption of virgin raw materials and to favour regenerated materials.
The company receives school visits to make children and young people aware of separate waste collection and to show them how waste can become a new product without consuming other virgin raw materials.
The company is interested in enlarging its sales and is looking for partners for long-term cooperation. They are interested in cooperation with experienced distributors. Envisioned form of cooperation will be distribution services agreement, where the company will provide products while partner will take care for distribution in their respective markets.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
The company aims to differentiate itself from the competition because the production of the bags is made with regenerated material from industrial waste supplied by another family business. In business decisions, the company prefers investments that lead to a reduction in energy consumption. In fact, the new plants and machinery that have been purchased have the prerogative of saving energy. In addition, the company has built photovoltaic systems for the production and self-consumption of electricity. The company supplies customised systems thanks to a know-how of very high technical content, for the correct application of the punctual and corresponding tariff. It has recently expanded its technological package by equipping itself with a fully Robotized system for packaging and pelletizing on the entire production line, Coextrusion Plants able to perform multi-layer processing, and automatic gravimetric systems for thickness control. The company's latest innovation was to create a waste bag with a microchip inside. A patent that allows collection companies to trace the path of the waste from the moment it is thrown in the bin until it arrives at the plant.

Partner sought
