In 2016 Albis (U.K.) Limited celebrates its 50 year anniversary. Established 50 years ago on the 2nd September 1966 as Albis Plastic Company (Great Britain) Limited, it began trading from offices within sight of the old Wembley stadium at York House in Wembley. The ALBIS UK business is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Albis Plastic GmbH based in Hamburg, Germany, which itself was founded some five years previously in 1961.

Initially the Wembley offices main focus was a sales office trading polymers and plastics but in 1974 the Knutsford, Cheshire factory was established to process polypropylene coming from the Shell Chemicals factory situated close by in Carrington. This was Albis’ first move into manufacturing outside of Germany and formed the beginnings of the compound business that is strongly established today. In 1980 the Wembley office was closed and all activities were centered on the Knutsford site.

Compounding activities have since flourished and the Knutsford site has been expanded to become a manufacturing and distribution site operating six compounding lines with the ability to warehouse more than 4,000 tonnes and a manufacturing nameplate capacity of greater than 20,000 tonnes. Compounding activities were also enhanced by the license compounding agreements in place alongside distribution contracts allowing Albis UK to manufacture under license products such as Makrolon, Novodur and Durethan. The offices and laboratories on site were expanded in 1997 with a new warehouse purchased in 1998 creating what is today a modern 100,000 square foot site.
