Company General Plastic, Plc. was founded in May of 2002 with main goal of recycling of PET bottles in a state of the art washing and B2B production plant. The pellets and washed flakes were sold on the open market.
As of the year 2010, the company expanded its activities into PET preforms for fillers of non-alcoholic drinks as well as wine and oil and the production of LDPE shrink film. The focus of General Plastic today is the processing of plastic material and recycling of non-metal waste.
„We see a bright future for the rPET market and as one of the top processors of PET pellets, flakes, bottles, and preforms in Central Europe it is our clear intention to further improve and grow our business in a sustainable and green way.“
In light of this clear growth and sustainability strategy the company decided in 2015 to dedicate a large invest for the „flake to preform“ segment of which viscotec’s deCON is an integral part. “The advantages of the viscotec technology were very clear from the beginning” says Jozef Ungvarsky, General Manager of General Plastic. “No other company could demonstrate a sufficiently high level of decontamination and suitable flexibility for this high demanding application and this particular machine set-up.
This set-up was the first and we could rely 100% on the professional support and expertise of the complete viscotec team, beginning from the sales process to the high level technical support during installation up until the end with the expertise for the EFSA application.”
