Stabilplastik produces and sells plastic shipping pallets and mobile traffic barriers made of recycled mixed plastic, which are repeatedly 100% recyclable. The pallets produced in this way have a number of advantages over conventional wooden pallets: they are maintenance-free, resistant to moisture, most acids, mold and insects. They are hygienic, therefore successfully used to transport food. Thanks to waste-free production, they do not burden the environment with further waste and have a lower CO2 footprint than pure plastic or wooden pallets.
The cooperation between Stabilplastik and the Technology Center CAS (within the activities of the Enterprise Europe Network CR) started in 2016. At that time, the company was expanding its production facilities in Měšice near Prague and looking for new business opportunities. In order to map well and understand the company's needs the best way possible, we conducted a structured interview with the company's CEO, Mr. Luxembourg, and monitored the company's development and needs on a regular basis.
In order to support internationalization and search for business opportunities abroad, we helped the company process offers for the Network database, which is one of the tools for establishing new partnerships. This database has become a place where the Danish company Nortech Solutions has attracted the attention of Stabilplastik range of shipping pallets. We connected the company and after short intensive negotiations, at the end of last year both parties agreed on an exclusive partnership for the Scandinavian market. The cooperation between the two companies is developing promisingly and new opportunities are opening up, which can lead to new joint business projects.
The opening of the Nordic markets is a response to the growing demand for products that meet the requirements of the circular economy and zero production of additional waste. This topic is beginning to resonate among the major players in the production and distribution of food. Stabilplastik is an important player in this environment: it spreads the principles of circular resource management and gradually changes the market. One such pioneering move is the planned pilot project for the circulation of green pallets between Globus and Nestlé, which can serve as an example of social responsibility in practice and thus trigger greater social change to promote responsible and sustainable waste management.
We will continue to cooperate with Stabilplastik and help bring their products further to European markets or seek resources to finance new projects and the company's development.
