AKRO-PLASTIC’s history stretches back some 30 years. In this time, we have accrued a wealth of knowledge and experience in the field of plastic compounding. We have been operating under our own brand name within the Feddersen Group since 2004. Since then, we have experienced constant growth. We produce over 165,000 tonnes of plastic compounds annually in our production sites in Germany, China and Brazil, and we work within an international network that can offer services ranging from development to logistics.
In response to rapidly changing market requirements, we use globally Standardised Compounding and Extrusion Technology (ICX®), which we developed with our sister company FEDDEM. With the construction of a new production facility in 2002, a new addition to our warehouse and administration building in 2011 and expanded production capabilities from 2012, AKRO-PLASTIC is keeping pace with the world’s steadily increasing demand and growing requirements for plastic compounding.
The United Nations have defined Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in their agenda. The 17 goals include overcoming poverty and other disadvantages, which must go hand in hand with strategies to improve health and education, reducing inequality and stimulating economic growth, while at the same time combating climate change and efforts for the conservation of our oceans and forests.
As a manufacturing enterprise and a member of a successful global group of companies, we see it as our duty to contribute to the fulfilment of these goals. Learn more about our efforts
