MGG Polymers already produces around 60 customer-specific product types with its compounding systems - by adding various additives to the respective base plastic. In order to be able to maintain delivery capability with this wide range of products, a corresponding stock level is required, which in turn requires space. "We have been aware for some time that we need to restructure and improve our premises," explains Günther Höggerl. "We need more space for recycling and compounding, but also storage space for our products in order to be able to guarantee our customers security of supply for all plastics."
We are currently working on the necessary framework conditions for more recycling. To improve internal processes, the volume flows (incoming and outgoing material) within the company premises are being reorganized and additional storage space is created. The first construction activities for a new distribution center on the MGG Polymers site have already begun. The new center will be ready for occupancy in spring 2024. This will make it possible in future to make do without externally rented storage space, as is currently the case. A number of loading silos will also be built for the delivery of products to customers by silo truck. The four compounding lines (extruders) currently in use will also be expanded in 2024.
At the end of the day, it's the overall package that counts
"MGG Polymers is characterized above all by the fact that we offer a complete package, not just plastic granulate in a container. We have been providing our customers with factory test certificates and many other certificates for years, we provide support with further processing on the machines and offer special quality aspects," says Höggerl, proud of what has been achieved. "Ultimately, this is what sets us apart from other suppliers."
