The company, with the name Rigerplast, was founded in 1985 by the Gerbaldo family. Having limited resources and a modest structure at their disposal, they began their activity of recycling plastic materials and the production of polyethylene granules of high and low density, as well as polypropylene, for the sectors of film, packaging, extrusion, blown plastics and injected moulding, intended for the Italian market. Over the years the company invested its financial, human and technological resources, through gradual specialisation, in the production of granules obtained from compounds of materials from selected industrial trimming waste, or from virgin polymers.

In 2003, due to the need for space and the rapid growth of the business, a new HQ was built with a floor area of 20,000 m2 on a footprint of 3,000 m2. This allowed the company to invest in new machinery and to satisfy their clients’ requests more quickly. Furthermore a modernisation of the commercial side was effected, leading to the name being changed to Rigerplast Polimeri and to the fitting out of a new internal laboratory.

In 2010 the company definitively changed its name to Gerbaldo Polimeri Srl and further improved the quality of its products with the help of the internal laboratory equipped with state-of-the –art apparatus. Moreover having specialised in the development of colours it could offer both its Italian and foreign clients the opportunity to personalise materials more than ever before, and satisfy the demands of the market very quickly.

2017 was a milestone for Gerbaldo Polimeri in projecting the company towards new, increasingly ambitious targets: co-opting new partners, increasing company capital, becoming an S.p.A. (limited company), technological and commercial targets, management of commodity and speciality products, as well as important investment in structure and machinery, are all a clear signal for our partners.
Last but not least the creation of an advanced research laboratory, “Globis Laboratori Srl”, providing support for the development of new materials and their certification.
