History

HISTORY

TCR Plastics was established in 1981 and has been led by Gert and Robert Struijk since 2001. TCR Plastics initially focussed on the export of European plastic raw materials to the Far East. In the 1990s Europe itself started emerging as a potentially lucrative market. TCR Plastics quickly developed to become an important link between producers in Europe and the rest of the world. As suppliers consolidated and increased their production capacity, the effective distribution of their products became an increasingly important factor. The role of the ‘intermediary’ became more and more that of the distributor. TCR Plastics started operating a distribution centre in Geel (Belgium) in 1999 in order to meet these new distribution demands. We now also maintain permanent stocks in Wallhamn (Sweden), Finland and Spain so that we can guarantee fast and flexible delivery, anytime, anywhere.

In 2006, TCR acquired Ovimo Plastics, a Dutch trading company specialized in recycled plastics. Ovimo Plastics also processes large batches of shredded plastics (both purchases and sales) for the European market. This is an extremely valuable addition to our activities, especially in light of the environmental benefits.

Over the past thirty years, TCR Plastics has grown into a company with close and lasting partnerships all over the world. This enables us to guarantee you continuity, high quality and excellent service.
