In the course of a state visit, the Austrian politician and People’s . Party top candidate for the EU election visited the family-run company FRIES Kunststofftechnik GmbH in Sulz. “Speaking with representatives from successful production companies is very important to me in order to have practical examples when discussing EU directives. Particularly with regard to the adopted plastic ban in the EU starting in 2021, Fries is just the right place to be as a niche player and plastic technology specialist,” Othmar Karas explained.

During an extensive tour of operations with the managing directors Katharina Rhomberg and Gerhard Bertsch, the leading politician found out about the innovative production procedures. In particular the extrusion blowing and injection molding procedures were explained. The representative was extremely interested in the produced products such as packaging, industrial dishwasher racks, industrial cleaning baskets as well as technical molded parts.
