For more than 20 years FKuR has been an innovative family-run company that develops, produces and distributes bioplastic compounds based on renewable raw materials. In addition to competent customer service, we offer personal and technical support at the highest level, also at your site.
Nature as a guideline. Plastics as passion. Customers as partners.
We as FKuR are committed to nature and its uniqueness. The origin of our company goes back to the intention to make a contribution to the protection of resources and to the ecological balance.
Back in 1992, when the Research Institute for Plastics and Recycling (FKuR - Forschungsinstitutes Kunststoff und Recycling) was founded, the initial focus was on the recycling of plastics. We are (still today) convinced that nature itself is the best recycler. Since the refoundation of the FKuR Kunststoff GmbH in 2003, we have been developing innovative bioplastics.
Nature as a guideline.
Nature is the role model for FKuR, because it has developed solutions that in terms of intelligence are hard to beat. Everything that nature produces is used, reused and recycled - there is no waste. It is impossible to imagine life without plastic and although it is used in many ways and every day, plastic does not have a good reputation. It is made from finite fossil resources and is often thrown away as packaging after a single use.
With target-oriented research and development, we at FKuR want to create sustainable materials in order to conserve finite resources, maintain the ecological balance and thus improve the natural living conditions.
Customers as partners.
We do not only supply companies with bioplastics. Rather we see our customers as partners! Together with our partners we work on solutions to design their plastic products in such a way that they meet all requirements and the demands of a modern circular economy. We support our partners in their challenges, successes and also their concerns. Consistency, reliability and honesty, both internally and externally, are values we live and work for.
Plastics as passion.
Our bioplastics are already being used by many customers in the packaging, household goods, writing utensils, furniture, toys and consumer goods industries, as well as for applications in the agricultural and gardening sectors. Processing is realized e.g. by injection moulding, extrusion, thermoforming and blow moulding.
For us, the outlook on ideas for new products and projects that have yet to be developed is even nicer than looking back on successful products. Please contact us! We are the Bioplastic Specialists.
