"Most exhibitors at Fakuma are companies from German-speaking countries. These countries are one of the key markets for the plastics produced at Záluží. Last year, the fair was attended by 44,000 visitors with 30,000 of them from Germany," said Tomáš Ohanka, procurist of Unipetrol Deutschland. "Our products are very well known on the German market. We have been cooperating with the local purchasers of plastics in various forms for 35 years," he added.
The company’s stand at the exhibition will be representing Unipetrol RPA and Unipetrol Deutschland. In addition to offering a wide range of high-density LITEN polyethylene and MOSTEN polypropylene products, Unipetrol will also be presenting a broad range of other petrochemical, refinery and agrochemical products. These come not only from the production capacities of Chempark Záluží, but also from other factories of PKN Orlen and other chemical producers from the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The Czech-German Chamber of Commerce will also be there to present information on its activities at the exhibition stand, because Unipetrol RPA is a member.
