Plastima celebrates 70 years!


In this blog, we take a deeper dive into the seven decades in which Plastima Breda has made its mark in the plastics, rubber and chemical industries.

It is with great pride and joy that we celebrate Plastima Breda's 70th anniversary today (20 March 2024). For seven decades now, we have dedicated ourselves to providing high-quality machinery and services for the plastics, rubber and chemical industries.

Where it all began

Plastima Breda traces its origins back to 1954, when the company was founded as part of the renowned Barentz Kunststoffen and, after 70 years as an independent family business, now has its third generation on board. In the years behind, the company has experienced incredible growth by responding well to technological advances and developments in the market. Our drive and commitment to quality, reliability and transparency are important pillars of that success.




The evolution of Plastima group
Now based at Minervum 7101 in Breda (NL) since 2021, our business has continued to develop, with now four private limited companies under the umbrella name Plastima Group, each with its specialism; Plastima Breda B.V. takes care of the sales and service of 22 leading machine suppliers in the Benelux, Plastima Used Machinery B. V. (P.U.M.) has focused on the purchase and sale of used machines for the plastics processing industry worldwide since 2007, and since 2012 BOY Benelux B.V. has acquired the exclusive dealership for Dr Boy's injection moulding machines, for the Benelux market. Finally, a fourth company in the Plastima Group manages the office premises, demo centre, tech centre and machine storage, which have now become an essential and indispensable part of our business and services.
