Erema Acquires Stake in Plasmac
Austrian Manufacturer Expands its Product Range
On 1 January 2019, the Erema Group, Ansfelden, Austria, acquired 60 percent of the recycling machine manufacturer Plasmac Srl to further expand its range of tailor-made plastic recycling solutions for in-house applications. The remaining 40 percent is owned by Syncro Group, a manufacturer in Italy that makes equipment for the blown film industry.
Plasmac has been active worldwide as a manufacturer of recycling plants since 1994 and was previously based in Aylesbury, England. In June 2018 the Syncro Group relocated the business to Busto Arsizio (Italy) and in January 2019 Plasmac Srl was newly established. The CEO of Plasmac Srl is Gabriele Caccia, who is also CEO of the Syncro Group.
Plasmac has comprehensive expertise in edge trim recycling and with their Alpha direct feed extruder and Omega shredder-extruder system offers easy-to-use solutions for throughputs of up to 250 kg/h. This range is supplemented by the Powerfeed edge trim transport system.
New customer groups
"These machines and components expand our product range of systems for
straightforward standard applications in the in-house segment, which is very important to us," says Manfred Hackl, CEO of the Erema Group, explaining why they invested in this business.
With technological developments such as the Intarema system and the founding of the subsidiary Pure Loop, which specializes in shredder-extruder technology for the recycling of clean production waste, the Erema Group has already successfully strengthened and expanded its presence in the in-house segment in recent years.
