This award is testimony to the hard work of the whole Emplas team. We are incredibly lucky in that we employ some of the industry’s most knowledgeable, passionate and committed people.

“It’s also a reflection of the professionalism of our customers and our supply partners. We’ve worked more closely with them than ever before to overcome the obstacles that COVID-19 has placed in our way and that those relationships are stronger going forward as a consequence.”
