On 2018 Laborplast celebrates 60 years of activity. The company has become one of the Italian and European leaders on rigid PVC regeneration: compound for extrusion and injection and reel cores production. It all begun on 1958 on a small plant in the town of Sacconago, where Pariani brothers launch a production of construction industry PVC solutions, especially cores and connectors for the local construction sites. The real estate growth of the period and the perseverance of Eugenio, Pierino, Paolo and Giovanni create a swift and profitable start. On 1973 a new plant in Bienate di Magnago gets inaugurated.
“Fratelli Pariani” becomes “Laborplast”, a company ready to face the new market incentives. The management is aware of the industrial packaging evolution, therefore the production of PVC cores for reels starts. This is a revolution, since cores for reels were usually produced of spiral cardboard. The customers place their trust on Laborplast original ability and reliability, thus promoting its growth. In the mid-1990’s, once its position on marked is stable, Laborplast sets its management according to the evolution idea: the first important investment focuses on the replacement of the mono-screw extrusion machinery with double-screw ones. As the new Millennium arrives, the company gets a regeneration installation with high capacity of production, in order to introduce on the market also the regenerated PVC compound. The main attraction of this product is its predisposition to be created according to each client specific needs and indications. On 2013 the new Busto Arsizio plant is ready: over 10.000 sm where cores production doubles and compound production triples. Until today the growth is permanent: the 2013 10.000 tons become 20.000 tons in 2017.
Today the company hourly productive capacity gets above 5.000 kg/h. On 2015 the awareness that improvement cannot leave research out of consideration leads to the creation of an internal laboratory to run the main physical mechanical tests (compression, traction, 3-point flexure, MVR, MFR, VST, HDT, Charpy and Izod toughness), of a innovative spectrophotometer and a 3D printer to realize new products prototypes. The sixtieth year of activity brings the extension of the selection. On January 2018 Laborplast start the production of PVC full and hollowed rods (round, squared, hexagonal and rectangular), technical semifinished products intended for chemical and petrochemical industry. On 2019 next to the existing plant a new 20.000 sm manufacturing area will be placed. Laborplast does not make any prediction for the future but certainly makes a commitment: to proceed with its activity offering innovative and customised products, respecting the environment.
