ST PLAST was founded in 1991 based on a simple idea, to deliver better packaging and at the same time use less raw material, than other suppliers, to get the job done.
This idea was the start of ST PLAST, whom today develops and produces plastic packaging which are being used in fully automated machinery in large parts of the food industry, along with some other industries, in Northern Europe.
We have a constant need of acquiring more space, both for production and for storage. In 2007, after having had several minor expansions made to our previous location, we decided to move to our current headquarter on Falkevej in Esbjerg. With the move, we were finally able to solve our issues with space, but it also gave us the opportunity to organize a modern and rational production, which later has led to us being certified under FSSC 22000.
With this as a basis, our modern machine park produces its quality products with high efficiency and we deliver plastic packaging for both cookies, cream puffs, potatoes and other greens etc., along with more technical products such as transportation stands and sales displays.

Since the beginning, May 1991, where ST PLAST began with only one thermoforming machine, is it today a fully automated machine park with nine thermoform machines running production. The production itself is organized so that food safety, energy efficiency and both environmental as well as-work environmental cares are prioritized as an absolute parameter for success.
The work environment is ergonomic and our lines produces with very high efficiency. Custom made equipment has been developed, to help secure high quality products – every time.
Real waste is almost non-existent in our production, and the raw materials that doesn’t end up as a part of our products, is processed and recycled so that the resources in our noble raw materials are preserved.
To ensure maximum exploitation of our machines, the production is running 24 hours a day Monday through Friday and our dedicated team of technicians seek to make sure that the machines are serviced, maintained and updated so that we avoid unintended downtime.
All registry on the factory is controlled via barcodes, to make sure we are always up to date when it comes to order statuses, consumption and inventory along with statistics on our different products.
