The ALPLA Group, the global packaging solutions and recycling specialist, increased its turnover in the 2021 financial year by 8.4 per cent to four billion euros. The number of employees worldwide increased to 22,100. In addition to investments in recycling and in the development of bio-based and biodegradable plastics, the company expanded through acquisitions and participations.

Said Philipp Lehner, CEO, Alpla Group: “We have put ourselves in a strong position internationally in recent years, invested in the recyclability of plastics and in new technologies and materials, and achieved a new sales record in 2021. We want to secure this positive development sustainably and in the long term.”

With an increase in turnover of 8.4 per cent to four billion euros, the previous year was significantly exceeded.

Since 2021, the ALPLA Group has invested an average of 50 million euros annually in the expansion of recycling activities. By 2025, the recycling loops are to be closed in as many regions as possible.

Added Lehner: “Our customers’ demand for high-quality recycled materials is also growing outside Europe. In the long term, we want to cover between 70 and 80 per cent of demand with our own production.”

Growth of three to five per cent is the target for the 2022 financial year.

Concluded Lehner: “Numerous projects and acquisitions in the USA, Mexico, Asia-Pacific region and Western Europe enable us to strengthen existing and enter new product and market segments.”  For more visit alpla.com
