In the 1969 Luigi Caprioglio began to collaborate with a small company of injection moulding that had 3 presses of small tonnage. Then he realizes the potentialities of this technology for the development of supports for the textile industry. The following year he decided to found the PLASTIMEC.
Since then the company has always been characterised by an elevated rate of growth, so it passed by the 10 injection machines in the 1975, to 20 in the 1988 and finally to 25 in the 1995.
In the eighties Luigi's sons, Mauro and Paolo, decided to work full time in the family company bringing with them ideas of modernisation and expansion.
In the nineties PLASTIMEC decided to dedicate 100% of its own sources in the textile sector, mainly to produce supports for the process of synthetic yarns.
ITMA 1991 in Hannover launched the company outside Italy, allowing it to become a strong exporter of Italian technology in the world. To keep up with the times, PLASTIMEC has always kept updated its injection machines, in 1987 we bought the first machine with computer for the process control, in the 1996 all the machines were computerised.
The introduction in 1997 of a central system to feed raw materials from silos has allowed the company to increase a lot the production autonomy, afterwards the installation of automatic plants for the products' packiging created the ideal conditions to meet the actual needs of the market "JUST IN TIME".
The economical crisis of 2009 interested all the industry with a clear reduction of volumes required by the world textile market. But starting from 2010 the situation tended to slowly improve till 2012 when we recovered much of the lost volumes.
In 2013 we started to collaborate with ROOFINGREEN, an Italian company specialised in the design of innovative and environmentally friendly roofing for buildings. The production of ROOFINGREEN modules, the famous plastic tile covered with synthetic grass will start in 2014 with ever-increasing numbers.
Today PLASTIMEC is an highly specialised company, it has modern and efficient technologies and methodologies of job, a deep knowledge of the market and a will to grow up and improve in the future.
