Meraxis cooperates with compound manufacturer Rialti
Muri b. Bern/Switzerland, 07 March 2023. Swiss trading group Meraxis and one of Europe's leading producers of polypropylene compounds Rialti have entered into a strategic partnership: Effective immediately, Meraxis will market Rialti's high-quality compounds and recompounds in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Together, the two companies will also further advance the development and production of customer-specific recompounds.
"Rialti is a strong partner with many years of production experience, with whom we can further expand our recompound offering," said Elmar Schröter, Executive Director Recycling Materials, Compounds & New Business Development at Meraxis. "On the one hand, our customers benefit from the broad portfolio of standard formulations. On the other hand, Rialti has got an excellent in-house laboratory where customized products are manufactured." Stability, fluidity and color, for example, can be precisely adapted to customer needs, depending on the application. Both partners have their own research and development capacities, thus merging their expertise in material development and application consulting. Meraxis also supports its customers in switching from prime to recycled material.
"A major advantage of Meraxis is its comprehensive know-how along the entire value chain," says Massimo Dal Toso, founder and CEO of Rialti. "Not only do we complement each other very well as partners, but we also pursue common sustainability goals. Together, we contribute to a functioning circular economy by strengthening the recyclate market." PP recompounds are used in particular in the automotive industry, the furniture sector, but also in construction applications and household appliances. Because polypropylene recycles so well, demand has skyrocketed in recent years. "Rialti has access to secure sources of raw materials through its many years of market experience and partnerships and is active in the same industries as we are," emphasizes Dr. Stefan Girschik, CEO of Meraxis. "Rialti's recompounds are convincing not only because of their quality but also because of their contribution to reducing the industry’s CO2 emissions."
In addition to primeware, recyclates and additives, Meraxis, as a one-stop shop for the polymer processing industry, offers its customers everything they need from a single source. The portfolio also includes purchased parts, tools and machines, as well as services related to procurement, logistics, development and processing.
