Plásticos IPA celebrates 60 years of existence entirely dedicated to the manufacture of plastic articles. A start with toys, flowers and needles that resulted in 3 lines of action today: domestic, sanitary and technical packaging.
Plásticos IPA, SA, a manufacturer of plastic articles with headquarters in the Industrial Area of Porto de Mós (district of Leiria) and installations of approximately 7500 m2, marks in January 2021 six decades of existence, highlighting in this route the experience in the sector , the vast portfolio of renowned clients and social and environmental responsibility in the country and the region.
Founded in 1961, IPA was born as the Plastics Industry of Azóia with a small production unit located in Azóia (Leiria), essentially manufacturing toys, flowers and needles for fishermen. Following a remarkable growth path, today Plásticos IPA, S.A. is a prominent company in the region, employing 25 employees and operating 24 hours a day, from Monday to Friday. The products currently sold are divided into 3 lines: domestic (thermal articles and utilities), bathroom (flushing cisterns, toilet tops and accessories) and technical packaging (bottles, jerricans, lids and dispensers). In this last line, we highlight the production of HDPE, multilayer and PET packaging. In the field of multilayer packaging, Plásticos IPA had a visionary stance and was the first company in Portugal to implement the technology necessary to manufacture this type of products. This attitude still holds us today in a prominent position in the packaging market.
Social responsibility has been present from the first moment, as Plásticos IPA, SA seeks daily to provide new employment opportunities, improve the working conditions of its team, and, at the same time, achieve the optimization of production, assembly and storage of its products and quality of services provided.
