The ALPLA Group, the global packaging solutions and recycling specialist, is taking over Plastisax S.L. The Spanish company produces plastic bottles for the cosmetics, home and personal care segments. The takeover will enable an increased use of recycled material in production operations and a strengthening of the circular economy in the region.
With the purchase of the Spanish bottle manufacturer, ALPLA is consolidating its market position in eastern Spain and expanding its production capacities mainly for packaging solutions made from the plastic HDPE (high-density polyethylene). A smaller product area also includes bottles made of PET (polyethylene terephthalate). EBM (extrusion blow moulding) and SBM (stretch blow moulding) are used as production technologies. The company has 58 employees who will be taken over by ALPLA.
Said Marc de Voogd, General Manager France & Iberia at ALPLA: ‘With the integration of Plastisax into our group, we are expanding our customer base and improving our geographical footprint to serve our regionally based customers even better. With the new location near Alicante, we are now very well positioned along the Mediterranean coast in addition to the existing plants near Barcelona and Valencia.’ For more visit alpla.com
