Dear employees, esteemed business partners and customers!
Public interest in plastics has rarely been as pronounced in ALPLA’s 60 years as a company as it has been in recent months. The image of this material has suffered due to ever greater pollution of the environment, with plastic packaging being the focus of public attention here in particular. Media reports have played a part in making issues such as marine littering and microplastics highly emotive topics of debate. Nonetheless, plastic has become part and parcel of everyday life. Without it, there would be no aeroplanes, no life-saving operations and no hygienically packaged food.
