DRP GROUP History

poznaj nas

Using our experience gained over 25 years and a wide range of know-how, we offer our clients tailored and cost-effective solutions.

The history of the DRP Group company dates back to the end of the nineties, last century when operating under the name Drewnex. It operated in the industry of metal waste trading and produced wooden pallets (hence its original name).

The next step was to expand the business to the processing of plastic waste. We used this time to gain extensive knowledge and experience in the field of materials science of polymers, their applications and processing methods. This move has set and dominated the current direction of our company’s development for the coming years. Thus, it became the first step towards building the position of the industry leader, which is today DRP GROUP.

In the meantime, the company has undergone many image changes, to finally take its final form with the name DRP Group in 2016. It was a breakthrough moment, from which we focused most of our attention directly on the processing industry, becoming a producer of modified plastics dedicated to this industry. Since then, we have been consistently increasing the level of our production and expanding our product and service offer. At present, we are able to produce in our production plant in Dąbrowa Górnicza (Śląskie Voivodeship, Poland) over 8,000 tons of ready-made polymer mixtures in the group of engineering plastics.
