We have been pursuing this goal since our company was founded in 1987 by Alfred Westensee. With his decision to become independent in the plastics industry, he recognized early on the opportunities in this market. Already in its founding year, he was able to win the representation of the largest ABS manufacturer, Chi Mei Corporation / Taiwan, for Germany. The distribution has been extended by the product groups SAN, ASA, PMMA, SMMA, PC, PC / ABS, PS / SBS and TPE. Later additional distribution products were added, eg POM of the manufacturer Formosa Plastics Corporation / Taiwan and TPEE of the South Korean manufacturer Kolon Plastics Inc.
From the beginning, electrically conductive compounds were also offered, which have been marketed since 2008 in their own development and recipe responsibility under the product name “Poly Elek”. Another mainstay is the development and production of polyolefin compounds and concentrates, which have been offered since 1989 as standard products and customized grades.
In 1996, our company was ISO certified and now has ISO 9001: 2015 certification. In 2010, the daughter of company founder Wiebke Westensee took over the company.
Our headquarter is located in the city Winsen (Luhe) near the traditional trading metropolis Hamburg.
Our customers come from many different industries, including: packaging, automotive, electronics, cosmetics and toys.
