HISTORICAL BACKGROUND

The company BUSS AG, manufacturer of continuous mixing and kneading machines, produced plastic compounds in two plants at its site in Pratteln (Switzerland). After about 10 years in operation, investments were needed and the plants were no longer state-of-the-art. It was therefore decided to concentrate on the key business, machine production, and to give up the compounder business. Employees of BUSS AG saw this as a possibility to use the division as a basis for founding an independent company.

POLYCOMPOUND AG was founded on 5th May 1988 as an independent joint stock company.

Two of the original company founders are still members of the board of directors.

In the early phase two plants handled approximately 1‘500 tons of compounds per year. With the gradual expansion to four production plants and three laboratory kneading machines, the annual capacity has since been increased to 10‘-12‘500 tons.
