Each of our affiliated companies is a known quantity on the market. Depending on the specific assignment, the interaction between them is individually configured for our customers. This creates ideal value creation chains for tailor-made circular solutions that adhere to a simple principle: save CO2, preserve raw materials.
Overview of our value creation cycle
Everything from a single source – our processes and our four areas of business adopt a holistic approach to ensure maximum quality at every point.

Experience as a competitive edge
The experience our affiliated companies gathered on the market for circular plastics systems benefits not only our customers and the environment: we are also happy to share it when it comes to defining quality criteria and processes that help set global standards. After all, this is a key prerequisite for driving development forward. For instance, our Group company Sysplast – which at the time was still the recycling centre of Grundig AG – developed criteria for the disposal of used electrical and electronic appliances as early as the mid-1970s that are still valid today. We are continuing along this path.
