Origin and Expansion
PLASGAL was founded in June 1973 and began its activities as a plastic film and injection-moulding manufacturer, producing mainly flexible packaging and household articles.
The company has been growing steadily since 1973, reaching its first production peak in 1981, when it built a new production plant and acquired new production equipment.
Such expansion placed the company in a prominent position in the Portuguese plastics market and, in 2005, the company moved again into new and larger premises with a gross area of 30,000 m2 and a total covered area of 10,000 m2, where it operates today.
To better meet the market's needs, PLASGAL has gradually adjusted its manufacturing focus and, today, the company specialises in the production of flexible plastic packaging, namely, printed and unprinted polyethene bags, sheets, rolls and films.
As a reference company in the plastics processing sector, PLASGAL achieved and maintained its visibility and competitive position on the market due to a strong commitment towards innovating its production processes and training its employees.
