About us


Your strong partner - for the regional value chain

With more than 145,000 employees and an annual turnover of approximately €36 billion, North Rhine-Westphalia is the No. 1 plastics region in Germany and Europe. The industry combines numerous small and medium-sized enterprises, large-scale international corporations and strong research institutes along the value-added chain on location.

Thus, kunststoffland NRW actively builds on an excellent basis while advocating as a network for the interests and needs of the industry. Through our members, we connect the entire value-added chain of plastics and thereby achieve a comprehensive exchange. We maintain an overview of stakeholders and their activities within the province and associate these with each other in a meaningful way. As spokesman of the industry, we also make our members being heard as we represent their interests in a targeted manner. As part of the state’s leading-market policy, kunststoffland NRW was designated as the key association supporting the state competence network of the same name.

kunststoffland NRW members are invited to join the topical platforms, which are primarily for sharing knowledge and experience.
