Brands of POLYPLASTIC Enterprise Successfully Compete with European Equivalents
Composite Polyplastic materials were included in the PMR 2017 international list of French car manufacturer PSA Peugeot Citroen. This means that Russian compounds may be used in car spare parts of domestic and foreign origin.
PSA Group production lines are located in European countries, Latin America, Turkey, Russia, China and Morocco.
Composite materials were tested in French, German and Russian laboratories. The list included 11 Polyplastic brands. “This is very important news. Our company becomes closer not only to the French automobile brand but also to other internationally recognized companies. Our products are no worse than those of European competitors,” the management of the Russian company commented.
It is noteworthy that our products were included in the PMR list for the first time. Earlier in the year, Polyplastic Research and Development Enterprise concluded a strategic partnership agreement with PSMA Rus at the Kaluga production line. We should remind that large-capacity compound shipments will start in 2018.

The story of the POLYPLASTIC Group began back in 1991. The 1990s were the years when Russia’s industry was being severely damaged by a financial crisis. POLYPLASTIC was one of the companies that managed to survive that volatile situation, maintaining its level of production and subsequently becoming a top-rated plastics processing company.
Today, the POLYPLASTIC Group comprises twelve plastics processing enterprises (located in Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and Kazakhstan), two Research and Development (R&D) centres, as well as a number of joint ventures and trading houses. The company is staffed by a workforce of more than 5,000 employees, and annually produces thermoplastic composites, polyethylene pipe systems and fittings in excess of 290 kilotonnes.
POLYPLASTIC’s compounding business has played an important role in the company’s development. The demand for engineering thermoplastics in Russia created a solid base for the expansion of the company into the production of composite materials. While actively participating in the development of the engineering thermoplastics market, the POLYPLASTIC Group substantially expanded and enhanced its compounding facilities — a move which increased the company’s overall compounding capacity to approximately 70 kilotonnes annually.
