Cluster Strategy
Mission/Objectives: 

Bringing together members with national and international stakeholders in the field of plastics.

The company network INNONET Kunststoff®  is a platform and a link between companies in the plastic sector in Baden-Württemberg.

Within the network, more than 110 companies and institutions cover almost the entire value chain in the plastics sector.

From mould and tool making, injection moulding machines to a wide range of plastics processing, to a series of downstream processes, such as design, printing, laser processing, measurement and testing.

The plastics expertise in the network is further rounded off by the membership of universities and research institutes.

Get to know the platform for companies active in the field of plastics technology.
