60 years of TPL
Set sail with TPL and Polyplex

TPL@INTERPACK 2020

On the occasion of Interpack 2020 we celebrate 60 years TPL company journey with all its taste nuances. Since the introduction of the different films and all our big and small highlights, we haven’t only savoured moments of sweetness since our founding in 1960, the introduction of our different films and all of the highlights we’ve had in between, big and small. There have also been bitter and sour moments on our journey across the oceans’ salty expanses. Nevertheless, we’ve always been able to navigate our way back to sweeter ports of call which excited all of our senses and which allowed us to supply our customers with new innovations.
