Production

 

The history of Prima plast d.o.o. goes back to the 1950s, when the former work organization »Kamnik« decided to engage in plastics processing and production of packaging material to cover their own requirements. The first material was PVC, which was used to laminate ignition cords in order to improve their water resistance. After 1962, when the first extrusion machine was purchased, the production of PE foil began, which may be considered as the beginning of plastics development in »Kamnik«. From 1963 to 1969, additional extrusion machines, welding machines, and the first printing machine were purchased. At that time, the production was located in Kamnik - Fužine. Between 1969 and 1970, the plastics production plant moved to its current location in Šmarca near Kamnik. Next to the extrusion hall, an additional hall for printing and confectioning products was built, enabling an accelerated expansion of the activities. In the following years, the share of PE bags and sleeves made for own requirements were reduced, as the demand of various industries for packaging products increased rapidly.

In the beginning of the 1990s, cooperation with the automotive industry was launched, and has grown to such an extent that it represents the major share of our turnover today.

We constantly develop our machines and products, using modern, environment friendly materials.
