As Palram Industries Ltd. celebrates the attainment of 50 years in business, a series of special events were held during this past year at various locations around the world, with an extra special event planned during the eight-day exhibition in Dusseldorf.
The seeds of this success were sown by a unique group of individuals from Kibbutz Ramat Yohanan, founded in 1931 as an agricultural community located in the Western Galilee region of Israel. In 1963, they decided to establish a factory, Palram, to produce thermoplastic sheets for construction, industry and agriculture.
Extending the Kibbutz's intrinsic cooperation and mutual respect to both suppliers and customers played a significant role in the success of the company. The customer that received this first shipment of clear corrugated PVC sheet (PALRUF) still markets Palram sheets.
