Who would have thought, 100 years ago, that plastics would become an indispensable part of everyday life? Scarcely any other invention has shaped the world as much as the discovery of plastics. What began almost 500 years ago with the oldest instructions for producing plastics on the basis of casein, became a matter of ever greater concern from the beginning of the 20th century: plastics as a replacement for other, more valuable substances. Since this time, the variety of plastics has increased drastically, their quality has
improved enormously and the areas of application have expanded considerably. Leistritz has been present in the field of plastics processing since 1937 and is among the leading manufacturers of extruders worldwide.
With our co-rotating twin screw extruders, we cover a wide range of fields in the material processing such as masterbatch, compounding and direct extrusion. In the process, our customers' products are always the focus of our efforts!
