Leader in the market of PET containers
Daunia Plast was founded in 1981 thanks to an intuition of Mauro De Pasquale. The newly founded company began producing HDPE jerry cans from 5 to 30 liters. In the initial phase, Daunia Plast’s customers were small household and local hardware stores. The production and storage of the goods took place in a small space of just 400 square meters.
Subsequently, the predominantly reference market became the containers aimed at products for home and personal care. In order to provide a complete service to the customer, in that period Daunia Plast started the production of caps in PE and PP to complete the whole range of bottles and canisters produced. This has allowed the Company to begin to mature its experience in the moulding industry. The main customers of Daunia Plast become the producers of cosmetics and large subcontracting groups located throughout the country.
In 2006 the first important investment was made through which Daunia Plast enters in the world of PET containers.
The first blowing machines for the production of bottles and the first presses for the production of preforms are installed.
The goal was to take care of and follow small market niches in which the major competitors, already present on the market itself, had no particular strategic interest in entering with targeted solutions.
The production of some types of PET preforms was therefore initiated, the goal of which was to satisfy the internal demand for bottle production.
