How it all began

The Spritzgussa Plastics company was founded in order to develop and manufacture plastic packaging. At first, plastic parts were made in an injection moulding process for the film industry, for office use and as household articles.

Launch of in-house tool and mould construction. This allowed us to immediately rectify and repair the inevitable wear and tear to production tools which occurs in three shift operations, and thus guarantee the required product quality from the very start.

Upturn and further development of the moulding department. A manufacturing shop for 25 injection moulding machines and silos with a capacity of 80 tons (for the raw materials of Polystyrene and Polypropylene), and a central conveyor system was launched.

The existing moulding complex was replaced with a larger building and equipped with state-of-the-art processing machinery (eroding machines (Charmilles 200 + 400), milling and CNC machines). The significant collective expertise in precision and quality was now further complemented and implemented by the construction and manufacture of an injection moulding machine.

Continuous improvement of our machinery in the moulding department (Netstal, Demag and Battenfeld machines). Further improvement and investments in the field of peripheral instruments (automatic packing machines; completion machines) and in the field of production performance of injection moulding machines whilst at the same time improving the quality.

Introduction of a quality assurance system according to DIN EN ISO 9001. Certification took place via TÜV Südwest.

Introduction of a state-of-the-art CAD construction workplace based on CATIA V.5

Our headquarters moved from 72555 Metzingen to 72827 Wannweil.

Installation of a fully automated production cell including unmanned palletisation of finished goods with a clamp force of up to 360 tons.

Initial certification according to the BRC Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials Issue 4

Extension of all injection moulding machines with Wittmann removal machines

Installation of a frequency-controlled compressed air system with waste heat recovery.

Redesign and extension of the refrigeration system and launch of an integrated free cooler.

Extension of our storage capacity by around 3,000 sqrm to around 15,000 sqrm by way of an external warehouse.

Installation of another all-electric injection molding machine with 190 tons. closing force of the manufacturer Haitian with significantly improved efficiency and reduced power consumption to improve the energy balance.
