PLASTEX this year was different from the previous editions, with more global representation of the exhibitors signifying the importance of the event and being in the Egyptian market. I have noticed a great turnout of attendees despite the pandemic along with the rising demand to buy raw materials, machineries, and end products.

Still growing, Egypt is one of the most important markets in Africa for us. That’s why we do not miss to participate at Plastex. We look forward to partner with manufacturers who rely on Austrian quality when it comes to high-end extrusion technology for the production of cast film, sheet, coated film and laminates or multifilament yarns.
