Promotion
Success Story / Achievements: 

Andaltec as a Research Technological Centre of Plastic is created in 2005. More than 30 public and private entities will join efforts to built the first cluster entity in the plastic sector in the South of Andalucia (Spain). During 10 years, Andaltec, SMEs and large companies of this sector are growing in the field of development of new polymers and polymer composites for diferent market sectors.

One of the main objectives focus on improving the competitiveness of companies and strengthening the economy through research, technological development and innovation.  Andaltec organisation is made up of a professional staff of over 140 employees from diverse technical specialization. This team consists on PhD, PhD students, Engineers, Designers, Chemistry and Physics Graduates. In addition, ANDALTEC personnel include experts in the field of polymers who know the industrial reality in depth and provide appropriate solutions which best meet the needs of enterprises. ANDALTEC enjoys excellent working relationships with the enterprises in the plastics sector in Andalusia, with other technological centres, universities and research centres around Europe, with whom key R&D projects have been carried out. Our R&D projects lines can be summarized.

In the last years ANDALTEC as a RTO of the Andalusian Plastic Cluster have been involved in the participation of 6 European Projects and more than 20 National projects. With the aim to promote the internationalization of entities of the Andalusian Plastic Cluster, the ANDALTEC European Project Office is in disposition of the main actors and companies of this sector and region during the last year.

 

Why should partners choose you for cooperation?: 

Partners which are interested to cooperate in technological, management and dissemination activities in the field of polymer materials production,  process and transformation of new polymer and new polymer composites will find in Andalusia Plastic Cluster a organization with  a relevant knowledge in the sector as food packaging, consumer goods, automotive or aeronautic.
