Mechanical engineering for plastics processing.

Unique. Digital. Electric.








Customer Care.

Vision drives Innovation.

Innovation drives Value. Value drives Success.


"Ideas are the beginning of all success. But without vision, no ideas are born."

(Bengt Schmidt, CEO)

Innovations that ensure your success. Let us inspire you.

We see ideas as a chance to create something new, to change something, to make something better.
For you. For our customers. For owner-managed and medium-sized companies in the plastics industry.


We support you in your production processes. Not only with our specialized application technology and our service, but also with new solutions. Digital. Electric. With a business model that is unique for the plastics industry. A business model that is based on 2 pillars: a distributor with its own mechanical engineering.


As a distributor, we offer you branded products of the Tederic 'NEO series' as well as services of up-to-date injection moulding technology. At the same time, we are pursuing the ambitious goal of developing a new and unique injection moulding machine for the plastics industry, which will be the most powerful machine on the market for a specific application. You can follow us with this project and we will keep you updated on milestones that have been achieved.


Who we are? A powerful and experienced team of experts from the international plastics industry.

Tederic ‚Neo series‘

  • As entrepreneurs and decision-makers,

    you are well familiar with the trends in the plastics industry. Circular economy, Industry 4.0 and digitization are the current buzzwords.

  • Of particular importance for plastics processing companies

    is also the fact that the duration of product life cycles is declining. Accordingly, the demand for cost-effective production solutions to produce a valuable end product on a stable running machine and with an application-specific process is increasing.

  • With Tederic we have gained a partner,

    which, with its 'NEO series', focuses on the right performance characteristics for numerous injection moulding applications: Flexible, functional and with simple operator guidance. All this at low cost, rugged and reliable. True to the motto: "Smart Injection".


Customer Care

A part of our corporate culture

It is definitely clear for us that our commitment does not end with the machine sale. Should your machine need to be serviced:
We are there for you. Non-bureaucratic. Fast. Reliable.

With our 800sqm application center, you also receive application technology support, from process engineering to machine optimization on site. Because our team is qualified and experienced. Our experts know almost all production, application and control processes inside out.

With us, the customer is the center of attention! Your personal contact listens carefully in order to understand your needs. In consultation with our experts, he defines the right solution for you and takes action to prevent downtime in your production. He will provide you with tailor-made advice to ensure your economic success.


The Hurricane. Our own product.

We are developing something awesome for you!

When we talk about high performance in plastics production, we also have to talk about electric machines. Especially if we think and act in a sustainable way. But despite numerous good Industry 4.0 approaches in many processes, mechanical engineering in the plastics industry is definitely still stuck in the analog world. We want to grease this wheel and increase the speed of transformation in plastics production.

Our ambitious goal is to develop a new injection moulding machine series. With smart ideas and innovations from the country where polymerization was invented and on an Asian cost basis. The 'Hurricane' will be the most powerful machine on the market for a specific application. A machine that allows you to manage the production of plastic products digitally, efficiently and smart.

We will keep you updated about our innovation. An innovation designed to create value for you. Sustainable.
