In 1956 at the age of 18, Wilhelm Klepsch founded the family company Senoplast in Kaprun. This was at a time when the accepted use of plastics was not as usual as it is today.
Wilhelm Klepsch, as founder and visionary was thinking towards the future. The idea was to collect old plastic materials and use them again. The name of Senoplast also stemmed from this. A mixture of the Latin word "senex" – old – and "plast" – ugs for plastic.
The company developed over the years from a simple production operation to a Global Player in the area of co-extruded sheets and films, whereby regional responsibility and the use of environment friendly materials and technologies was always an important cornerstone within the philosophy of the company. Through many years of proven research and development competence, Senoplast is seen today not only as just a supplier of plastic semi-finished products but as an integrated system partner.
Over the years the company has developed into a specialist in co-extrusion of multi-layer composite sheets and in this area has won the reputation of being technology leader. By intensive consultation and first class service, customers receive support from the concept right through to the finished product.
The greatest success?
" My greatest success was to open the factory in Piesendorf and thereby becoming an employer for so many families. When such plans work out, then it makes me happy. It only becomes a success when pursued consequently by inner motivation. And naturally you need a little luck along the way"
Wilhelm Klepsch, Founder of Senoplast and Chairman of the Board
"Quality and innovation are the cornerstones of our corporate philosophy. We are convinced that only by best quality and continuous innovations, we will be successfull in the long term. But more than this is involved: respect towards all partners, honesty and liability are the values which we hold in high regard as a family-run concern."
