Promising Developments

Wood/ Paper/ Plastics

The plastics sector in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern has enjoyed strong revenue growth and is an industrial sector that offers dynamic development potential. The northeastern most state in Germany is home to numerous small and medium-sized plastics companies. They cover the entire value chain from mechanical engineering over an active R&D landscape to the production of plastics products. PMC GmbH in Rehna, for example, produces fiber reinforced composite materials that are used to make light weight parts for trains, including formed nose cones for Germany's high-speed ICE T trains.

Plastics Innovation from MV

A new and innovative manufacturing sector in the plastics industry in MV is the field of organic plastics which are biodegradable and are used et al to make stents and implants for the medical sector. Renowned companies such as Degraimplant UG in Teterow or RoweMed AG Medical 4 Life in Parchim are active in this field. You can also find state-of-the-art technology in the fiber reinforced plastics made by tfc tools for composite GmbH in Güstrow and at EIKBOOM GmbH, who produce nacelles for wind turbines.

The Institute of Polymer Technologies e.V. combines plastics and wood to make a promising product called WPC (wood plastics composites). These and other developments are signs of a positive trend in plastics in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
