In 2018 Laborplast celebrates 60 years of activity. The company has become one of the Italian and European leaders on rigid PVC regeneration, used in the production of compounds, for extrusion and injection moulding, and cores for reels. It all began in 1958 in a small plant in the town of Sacconago, where Pariani brothers started a production of 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” became “Laborplast”, a company ready to face the new market challenged. The management, aware of the industrial packaging evolution, started the production of PVC cores for reels. This is a revolution, since cores for reels were usually produced of spiral cardboard. The customers placed their trust on Laborplast original ability and reliability, thus promoting its growth. In the mid-1990s, once its position on marked was consolidated, Laborplast set its management according to the evolution idea: the first important investment focused on the replacement of the single-screw extruders with the best performing twin-screw ones. As the new millennium arrived, the company installed a regeneration plant with high production capacity, in order to introduce on the market also 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 continuous: from 10,000 tons in 2013 to 20,000 tons in 2017.
Today the company hourly productive capacity gets above 5.000 kg/h. In 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 resilience), of innovative spectrophotometer and a 3D printer to realize new products prototypes. The sixtieth year of activity brings the extension of the range of products. In January 2018 Laborplast start the production of PVC full and hollowed rods (round, squared, hexagonal and rectangular), technical semi-finished products for chemical and petrochemical industry. In 2019 next to the existing plant a new 20.000 sm manufacturing area will be created. Laborplast does not make any prediction for the future but certainly makes a commitment: to proceed with its activity offering innovative and customized products, respecting the environment.
