About ST BlowMoulding
ST BlowMoulding was founded in 1980 as a manufacturer of blow molding machines. Right from its founding, ST was able to draw on the many years of experience of technical staff at MOI, the first manufacturer of blow molding machines in Italy. The goal of today's 75 employees is to produce plants for the blow molding of plastics according to concrete requirements in close symbiosis with the customers. For this purpose, products and production methods are being further developed together with customers and well-known material manufacturers, and new materials have been tested and used. Areas of application of the suction-blowing technology are automotive and other technical parts, e.g. for kitchens and household appliances (so-called white goods). However, ST is also represented in sectors such as automotive, specialties and increasingly industrial packaging with conventional blow molding technology (2D).
