[ Ettlinger Kunststoffmaschinen ]

Königsbrunn/Germany, February 2020 - ETTLINGER, a member of the MAAG Group and a leading manufacturer of high performance melt filters, has found a seasoned and effective sales partner for Poland in RICCO International Trade & Consultancy. The future cooperation will mainly comprise sales of Ettlinger systems as well as responsibility for local after-sales service in the mid-term.

RICCO can look back on several decades of experience in plastics recycling and – thanks to diverse activities in the shredder, washing plant and extrusion line segments – has an excellent knowledge of the Polish market. RICCO currently employs 11 people, serving both large corporations and SMEs.

Uwe Kellner, Managing Director ETTLINGER: “Apart from the central geographical location with optimal access to nearby Warsaw, the key factors influencing our decision to partner closely with RICCO were the firm’s longstanding experience in selling and servicing plastics machines. Krzysztof Kucharski, RICCO’s founder and Managing Director, and his team have a profound knowledge of the industry and are very well connected with the Polish recycling sector. With RICCO’s help, we can now make a decisive contribution to ensuring that plastic waste in Poland, too, is efficiently converted into valuable recycled materials for new and sophisticated products, no matter how high the level of contamination.“
