The processing industry keeps reacting to geopolitical changes and global trends; companies from all over the world prosper for new supply chains and fresh solutions. The objective is to find new outlet markets. PLASTPOL expo held in Kielce is one of the chances to expand and grow bigger. This year Plastpol commences on 23 May.

“Poland already boasts of having a highly developed processing sector, employing over 200,000 people. According to Plastics Europe data, the local plastics production volume is estimated to reach 1.7 million tons. Therefore, a large part of the demand is covered by imported raw materials.
