This partnership aims at jointly developing innovative product solutions according to the most stringent circular economy principles of reusing, reducing and recycling.
Corplex has joined Circular Plastics’ co-shareholders business model, bringing its wide and solid expertise in plastic extrusion and thermoforming, from design to development to production to recycling. This partnership aims at jointly developing innovative product solutions according to the most stringent circular economy principles of reusing, reducing, and recycling. The new partners have a vision of the effective implementation of closed-loop distribution circuits where plastic products are managed for their continuous use and re-use, saving on costs (25% on average) and having a positive impact on a company’s CO2 footprint.
While Circular Plastics contributes their expertise in supply chain and sustainable logistics, Corplex takes on the role to develop, manufacture, and introduce the plastic packaging of tomorrow, one that responds to the unique needs of specific industry sectors, extends the useful life of plastic products through re-use and recycling, and follows a cradle-to-cradle design approach.
“Investing in the Circular Plastics alliance is another step forward towards accelerating the transition to a circular economy for plastics,” said Corplex’s Chief Executive Officer Lucas van der Schalk. “Together, we will stimulate the reuse of plastic raw materials and innovative products within a closed cycle where products are collected, reused, and continuously recycled.”
Johan Thans, Director of Circular Plastics, said: “We are excited that Corplex joins as a shareholder. With their vast network and long trajectory, we can tap into new markets and help even more companies with circular solutions that save on costs and reduce their impact on the environment.”
Corplex is part of the Olympus Partners holdings and has grown into an international company with 11 sales, design, manufacturing and recycling facilities in France, the United Kingdom, Spain, Slovakia and the USA. They hold the European leadership position in foldable, returnable and reusable extruded plastic products for key markets such as automotive, pharmaceutical, retail, food and beverage, delivering every day award-winning products to customers around the globe and getting a Silver scoring from Ecovadis, the world’s most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings.
