Plastic raw materials are at the core of our business and our products. We cooperate with the largest petrochemical groups, but also with compounders and recycling companies.
With an annual purchase volume of more than 70,000 tons, the Plastivaloire Group is a significant player in this sector.
The main materials used are: PP, PA6, ABS, ABS-PC, PA6.6, PC, PE, POM, ASA, PBT.
The Plastivaloire Group is one of the leading European suppliers of decorated plastic parts for automotive and industrial customers.
We master all the kind of decoration technologies and rely heavily on the most advanced suppliers in this field.
Our needs in chrome-plated parts and IMF/IMD decoration are significant. The development and innovation capabilities of our partner suppliers are an essential criteria in the selection process.
As we are positioned on both exterior automotive parts (door handles, rear view mirror shells, wing covers, etc.) and interior parts (consoles, dashboard covers, etc.), we work with a large number of suppliers.
Here, the product/process compatibility is key, and suppliers must be able to support us in the field during the development as well as mass production.
Whether it’s from stamping, cold forming, screw machining, wire working or casting, we assemble hundreds of millions of metal parts every year.
Few of our products do not incorporate these components.
Here again, the expertise and development capabilities of our suppliers are imperative.
Foams, adhesives and other textiles are widely used in the parts produced by the Plastivaloire Group, whether for technical functions (fixing, protection, soundproofing) or for decorative functions (textile, leather, plastic coated fabric).
Our ever-increasing need for electrical/electronic components often involves a long-term partnership with suppliers. They are an important value and often have an essential function in our finished products.
Innovation and technology are major aspects in this field.
The common denominator of all our products is the packaging that protects them until they reach their final destination.
Whether it is plastic, cardboard, foam or metal, it is purchased as close as possible to our production plants.
Sometimes simple, sometimes very complex, they require working with often very different suppliers.
