Specta has acquired the assets of the largest PET-bottle recycler in St Petersburg region in Russia. The factory has modern technology of Italian origin. Specta plans to increase the capacity up to 12.000 mt per year.
The factory processes the PET-bottles into PET-flakes, which Specta further uses as raw material in the production of PET-packing strap at its plant in Kostroma.
Specta is one the largest PET-packing strap producers in Europe. Its main markets are Western and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Scandinavia.
“We need about 200 million bottles annually to secure raw material for our production and the new line will be part of the demand. The acquisition is an important step to secure the raw material, to improve control of the quality, to raise efficiency and to increase the capacity. For a client all this means an increased competitiveness” – says Erik Helin, CEO of Specta Group.
