50 Years of KI Group

The wonder of plastics

Anyone who reaches the age of 50 can no longer be described as young, but is certainly at a good age: confident, mature and experienced. Today, on 1 April 2021, KI Group celebrates its 50th anniversary.

The half century that has elapsed since 1971 is a long time – and it has most certainly been an exciting time. Therefore, we want to accompany you, dear readers, through 2021 with a variety of stories. The emphasis will not be solely on facts – although, as you know, that is what we do best. We also want to provide you with some surprising pieces of information, along with some anecdotes about our favourite subject – plastics.

With you, we want to explore what the future might hold for our wonderful material, whose history goes back a lot more than 50 years and that helps shape the ups and downs of mankind.
