More than 50 years of Lenzing Plastics

Half a century of passion for plastics processing

Lenzing’s location in the heart of Europe and access to resources such as wood, coal and water were optimal factors for establishing a paper-processing plant and subsequently one of the most modern fiber operations.

From paper to plastics processing - the beginnings of Lenzing Plastics

The production of cellulose fibers necessitated the need for suitable export packaging in order to ship the fibers to customers all over the world. In the 1960s, attempts were therefore made to produce high-strength packaging using polyethylene. This led to the founding of Lenzing Plastics in 1966 and the invention of the monoaxial stretching process as well as the development of the special machine technology required for this. This also gave rise to the plastics machinery manufacturing company SML Maschinengesellschaft mbH, which is also renowned worldwide.
