Plasnor participates in 2017 Subcontracting Fair

Plasnor participated in the 2017 Subcontracting Fair which has held in Bilbao from 6 to 8 June. The fair is a benchmark in the industrial subcontracting sector in the Iberian Peninsula, and it is one of the most important in Europe.

The touch of colour at the fair was added by Plasnor, with a colourful stand formed by coloured  plates and sheets made at the facilities that the company has in Legazpi (Gipúzcoa). The thermoformed pieces with lively colours used were the truest expression of what Plasnor is: a leading company that is a benchmark in the extrusion and thermoforming sector.

The materials exhibited showed the company´s production capacities in the most graphic way possible: more than 40 years of experience producing plastics, and 70% exports to the five continents, where it is supported by the leading companies in the most cutting-edge sectors.

The production of Masterbatch or colour concentrates for plastics, co-extrusion lamination and thermoplastic plates, and the design and production of moulds and pieces through thermoforming had a presence at the Plasnor stand. With them, the aim was to put a special emphasis on its options for the Transport Trays, Vehicle Bodywork, Renewable Energy and custom-made project sectors.    

The reception from visitors was really good, and the interest they showed is a faithful reflection of the good results obtained by Plasnor at the 2017 Subcontracting Fair.

The company really stood out among the companies that presented themselves in the Norsan High Gloss product category for the furniture sector.

The roll with a marble finish design perfectly evoke the  Plasnor slogan: “Advanced Plastic Solution”. Plasnor supplies advanced plastic solutions, but here we are dealing with more than plastic.
