Peruana de Moldeados S.A. – or simply PAMOLSA – is one of viscotec‘s most foresighted customers. In the beginning of 2017 Pamolsa expanded its PET sheet production capacities with a viscoSHEET rPET sheet extrusion line. The integration with the previously installed deCON decontamination dryer was a logical step, in order to gain maximum benefits of an entire solution supplied by Starlinger viscotec, says Ricardo Vallejos Miranda, Manager Industrial Operations of Peruana de Moldeados S.A.
Although Peru may not be exactly the most regulated area concerning the use of recycled plastic, Pamolsa relies on the worldwide highest standard in terms of decontamination technology. By using viscotec equipment, the Peruvian Company manufactures super-clean rPET packaging according to the highest European standards. The business was started already in 1994 with designing, producing and marketing of disposable packaging. Meanwhile, many different kinds of plastics such as polystyrene, expanded polystyrene, polypropylene and polyethylene terephtalate PET are processed. Besides, Pamolsa also offers packaging made of paper and aluminium.
Good and strong relationships to internal and external stakeholders are important for the Peruvian packaging producer, underlined with OHSAS 18001 and BRC certification. OHSAS means Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series and is a widely recognized British Standard internationally used for management systems. BRC stands for British Retail Consortium, a UK trade association which developed a highly recognized food packaging standard together with the Institute of Packaging. ”Our responsibility towards customers, employees and suppliers makes us become demanding in our operations, providing guarantees for the quality of our products and services“, says Sandro Borda, Managing Director of Peruana de Moldeados S.A. The fact that they are ranked in the top 10 of the Peruvian “Great Place to Work Award” four times in a row emphasizes their employee commitment.
As a member of the Colombian Carvajal Group, Pamolsa is in the position to use synergies and benefits from the knowhow from other markets and countries. Among their customers are well-known brands which are not only based in Peru but in several Latin American states. From the beginning in the early nineties, Pamolsa has grown considerably and has become an important employer with more than 1000 people working there. ”With the new equipment delivered by viscotec, we have not only invested in the state-of-the-art technology, but also established a solid basis for further growth of our company“, summarizes Ricardo Echegaray, General Manager of Peruana de Moldeados S.A.
