Packaging that feeds the Earth.
Packaging that feeds the Earth.
We produce compostable and biologically made films and packages that contribute to the protection of the Environment.
We implement an Ecosystem-friendly production cycle thanks to the use of compostable and partially bio-based raw materials.
We adopt the principles of the Green Chemistry and the Circular Economy, by using processes with a low environmental impact, as act of conscience towards future generations.
Since 1977 we have been dreaming of a sustainable future.
Since 1995, we have developed biodegradable products made of Mater-Bi®, thus anticipating the market demand.
Nowadays we produce compostable packages, source of nutrition for our Planet.
Innovation as a vision
We constantly perfect our production processes by taking unexplored paths, to create sustainable, safe and high-added value products.
Circular production chain
We mainly use the resources of the territory and realise internally the whole production cycle in order to guarantee a high-quality standard of the final product.
We take inspiration from the customer‘s needs to develop new ideas and we involve our suppliers in the analysis and production processes.
Giampiero Bianconi, Alfredo Fantucci and Giuseppe Bianchi founded Polycart S.r.l., specialising in the production of extruded polyethilene film.
This was the year when Print Plast came into being, focusing on printing and manufacturing sacks and shopper bags.
Polycart was one of the first companies to have experimented the new biodegradable Mater-Bi® product, patented by Novamont S.p.A. This material is extremely innovative as far as environmental protection goes and, today, it represents about 75% of the company’s total production volume.
Print Plast was incorporated into Polycart and the two became one big “Family”.
The company joined GPT “Gruppo Poligrafico Tiberino”. GPT is one of the first ever business networks to have pooled business expertise and academic knowledge, in collaboration with the University of Perugia, for the purpose of creating innovative products such as “Compost Label®” and all the “Biomade” products that were developed within this network;
Italian Law on Compostable shopper bags;
The first “Compost Label®” was introduced during the Fruit Logistica show, 6-8 February. This product also achieved the Carbon Footprint certification afterwards;
Research, innovation and a thorough knowledge of the market led to new ideas for cutting-edge compostable packaging products, called “Biomade”;
Nearly 20 years of ISO-certified work and a 39-year activity in the field have turned Polycart into a perfect business partner that can guarantee reliability, flexibility, high quality and precision. Polycart has always been fully committed to the Mater-Bi/Novamont projects. Today, this ever-growing dedication translates to consistent investments in machinery and “People”. These investments are meant to result into improved quality levels and increased customer satisfaction.
Anything that cannot be measured is not improvable.
Our ambition is to become a leading company in the sector of development of sustainable and innovative packages, a company able to attract talented professionals that share our policies and strategies and actively involve and listen to all our partners.
All this can be realised with our Polycart strategy based on a few but solid points:
1. RESPECT OF THE CONTEXT, starting from the one where the production sites are located to the one where our products are used and choosing reliable and competent partners;
2. PROTECTION OF PEOPLE, first understood as safety but also as enhancement and development of their competences, the real cornerstone of the company’s know-how;
3. CONSTANT CONTROL AND MONITORING in order to guarantee reliable processes and high-quality products and constantly grow;
4. COMPETENCE, to guarantee the development of cutting-edge technological and organisational solutions and to operate in compliance with the legal requirements linked to both the processes and the products.
In every single aspect, we involve all interested parties to initiate, as a single body, a work culture based on excellence and innovation. We look for the continuous improvement that lurks in every project and develop a simple, efficient and effective Integrated Management Model able to limit any waste as much as possible.
