Interplastica 2022: Meeting with KraussMaffei at R&P POLYPLASTIC booth


On the third day of Interplastica 2022, CEOs of the leading Russian compounder and one of the world's leading manufacturers of machinery and equipment for plastics and rubber production and processing discussed the prospects for further cooperation.  R&P POLYPLASTIC will not limit itself to launching two lines based on Blue Power extruders - the company has extensive plans for the future.

From the German side, Dieter Brunner, General Director of Kraussmaffei Rus, Siegfried Oldenburger, Head of Sales for the CIS and Baltic States, and Anton Vagis, Head of the Extrusion Technology Department, took part in the negotiations. Managing Partner Andrey Menshov and General Director Alexander Pavlov represented R&P POLYPLASTIC in this meeting.

“The launch of production at Saratov Polymer Materials Plant is only the first step in increasing and updating of our capacities. Today, we are working on several options for expanding production in the medium term.  And, of course, we are already thinking about what equipment will be used”, Alexander Pavlov said.

General Director of R&P POLYPLASTIC noted that one of KraussMaffei advantages is that the company provides top after-sales service and technical support. Moreover, the quality of this support for Blue Power lines installed at Saratov Polymer Materials Plant can play a decisive role in choosing the equipment supplier for further projects of the leading Russian compounder.

At the end of the meeting, Dieter Brunner presented Alexander Pavlov with a gift: “We sold you two extruders, so we will give you one more". The General Director of KraussMaffei Rus handed over to the Russian counterpart a symbolic souvenir with a 3D extruder.  KraussMaffei planned to present this gift at the celebration of POLYPLASTIC Group 30th anniversary but it did not take place due to pandemic restrictions, so the presentation took place at Interplastica 2022.
