About us

Company details

FKuR – The Bioplastic Specialist

FKuR is a medium-sized, privately held company focusing on the development, production and marketing of high-quality special compounds and the distribution of plastic specialties. We are one of the leading suppliers of bioplastics granulates for flexible packaging solutions and engineering applications.

We at FKuR are convinced that nature itself is the best recycler. That's why we want to use targeted research and development to create sustainable materials that on the one hand conserve fossil resources and on the other hand can be easily integrated into the reusable material cycle.

Our customers are our partners, we accompany them throughout the entire project: We recommend the most suitable bioplastic for the given application or develop an individual compound on request. As we have a broad network of reliable partners at our disposal, we can bring brand owners together with the appropriate processor. During the implementation phase, extensive technical support, including on-site customer support, is a matter of course for us. Finally, we support our customers with marketing-relevant questions within the framework of a successful market launch.
