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 100,000 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.
With a worldwide network of plastics distribution experts, we can provide you with support anywhere in the world. Talk to one of our specialists to find out more.AKRO-PLASTIC worldwide
Providers of Polymer Solutions
AKRO-PLASTIC is focused on developing polymer solutions with extreme good mechanical properties. Our unique compounding technology enables us to produce polymer solutions with best-in-class reproducibility, enabling you to create systems with extra tight tolerances. As an engineering plastics manufacturer, we offer flexible and individual services that are always up to date. Individuality is one of our greatest strengths. We offer a broad range of both standardised and specialised compounds as well as comprehensive knowledge about application-oriented polymer solutions.
Whatever the solution or worldwide location, we pride ourselves on our batch consistency. To achieve this, we have invested heavily in quality and ensure consistent procurement parameters across all our raw materials as well as frequent control. Our customers are multinational companies as well as small and medium-sized enterprises. But they all have high requirements. Therefore, we do more than just produce simple plastics. We are a service company constantly developing our own products and setting standards with both our Certified Quality Management and our test lab.
Product and Process Development
Our research and development work utilises trends and new ideas to serve the needs of our customers. Our experts combine the latest market developments with their long-standing experience to create innovative new products. We work within a broad network of institutes, research organisations and partner companies, and our highly developed service expertise in formulation development and toll compounding serves as a benchmark in the industry.
Innovative Compounding & Extrusion Technology
Increasing pressure on order lead times, consistent finished-product quality, growing product diversity and global availability at competitive prices characterise the business environment of compounders. The key to meeting these challenges is flexible production. For this reason, AKRO-PLASTIC has developed, in partnership with its sister company FEDDEM, the standardised machine concept known as ICX® Technology (Innovative Compounding and Extrusion Technology). Thanks to the identical production concept at the AKRO sites in Germany, China and Brazil, internationally operating companies can be supplied locally with identical products, provided that the raw materials will support this. This concept can lead to considerable time and cost savings in material validation.
The AKRO-PLASTIC Lab
As one of just a few medium-sized providers of plastics production and compounding services, we can also offer assured material testing. Our experienced laboratory technicians maintain a high level of technical knowledge through practical work in production environments and ongoing training.
Individuality is Our Guiding Principle
Since we began operating in 1988, we have grown to some 475 employees. Our guiding principle has always been individuality. We concentrate on offering a broad product line ranging from standard compounds to special compounds, and we also focus on cultivating comprehensive expertise in the application-orientated use of polymers. Today, with state-of-the-art production facilities, we rank amongst the most renowned suppliers of high-end plastic compounds.
