Schur Flexibles expands recyclable packaging innovations by acquiring Termoplast S. r. L.

Specializing in recyclable films, Termoplast S. r. L. is one of the pioneers of sustainable film production in Europe. Its 100 % recyclable MDO-PE films offer very good processing qualities for all printing technologies and special applications for industrial companies and as well as for food, medical and pharmaceutical sectors. Termoplast also operates its own recycling company for the purpose of implementing its “zero waste” strategy and putting the circular economy into practice – both during its own production and in the processing of post-industrial waste. Following a short and efficient negotiation process, Termoplast will accelerate Schur Flexibles Group’s expansion in the Italian market.

Termoplast’s facility in Gambassi Terme/Italy located on a production area spanning 26,500 m2 boasts a state-of-the-art and energy-efficient machinery park for manufacturing films. Its extensive product portfolio includes sustainable sealable, barrier and high-barrier films as well as peelable and reclosable films. The company produces an average of about 28,000 t of film material per year. With around 100 employees, the family business, now being managed by a team of the second and third generations, reported annual revenue of approximately 50 m EUR in 2020.
