POLYMELT’s company history began as early as 1947 with the idea of revolutionising plastics processing and making it easier to use for technical applications. From this idea, and the constant striving for improvement, we have become the innovative company that is successful all over the world today.


Why is Poloplast Germany now called POLYMELT again?

The Polymelt brand has existed since 1968 and has since been synonymous with high-quality plastic pipe systems from southern Germany for customers and business partners. Due to a change of ownership and a merger in 2003, a new brand association was created under the Poloplast brand from Austria. In recent years, the company has operated under the name Poloplast GmbH. At the turn of the year 2021/2022, this brand association will be dissolved – we are not reinventing ourselves, but returning to the tried and tested – Poloplast GmbH will become Polymelt GmbH again from January 2022.


In 2022 we changed our company name from POLOPLAST Germany to POLYMELT. However, the company will retain its location in Ebenhofen, Germany and the proven production facilities will also remain as before. The best quality “Made in Germany”.
