Microtec, a Venetian company, has an annual turnover of EUR 19 million and 20 employees. It produces about 8000 t of bioplastics annually. Within three years, the volume is now to double to 16,000 t/a, thanks to further extrusion lines.

Double Turnover in Just Five Years

It is the company’s second takeover in this year. In January Sirmax acquired the Italian plastics recycling company Società Europea di Rigenerazione (SER). Both acquisitions are part of the company's aggressive growth plan. The plan envisages doubling sales from EUR 300 million to EUR 600 million by 2023. Investments of EUR 80 million are planned for this purpose.
