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 Plastisax S.L. based in the province of Alicante, Alpla intends to consolidate its market position in eastern Spain and to expand its production capacities mainly for packaging solutions made from the plastic HDPE. A smaller product area also includes bottles made of PET. 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.
Alpla plans to increasingly manufacture products with a high proportion of post-consumer recycling material (PCR) in the new plant. In autumn 2019, Alpla bought two HDPE recycling companies near Barcelona and Valladolid. They ensure the supply of the production facilities in the region with PCR and contribute to strengthening the local bottle-to-bottle circular economy cycle.
The contracting parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price or other details.
