History

The History of SENOPLAST – a true success story

In 1956, Wilhelm Klepsch founded the family business Senoplast in Kaprun at the age of 18. At a time when the use of plastics was not yet as widespread as it is today.

Wilhelm Klepsch as founder and visionary thought ahead. The idea was to collect old plastic material and reprocess it. This also resulted in the name Senoplast. A mixture of the Latin word "senex" – old – and "plast" for plastic .

Over the years, the company has developed from a simple production operation to a global player in the field of co-extruded sheets and films, whereby regional responsibility and the use of environmentally friendly materials and technologies has been an important cornerstone of the company's philosophy from the outset.

Thanks to its research and development expertise, which has been proven over many years, Senoplast is today not only regarded as a pure supplier of semi-finished plastic products, but much more as an integrated system partner.

Over the years, the company has developed into a specialist in the co-extrusion of multilayer composite panels and has earned a reputation as a technology leader in this field. Through detailed discussion, cooperation and first-class service, customers are involved from initial concept development to the finished product.

In 2013, the generational succession took place at Senoplast. Wilhelm Klepsch handed over the management of the company to his son Günter Klepsch and retired to the Supervisory Board as Chairman.

This transfer of the company within the Klepsch family ensures continuity of the success story.

The biggest success?

"My greatest success was to open the company in Piesendorf and thus become an employer for so many families. When such plans work out, it makes me happy. However, success only arises if you have the necessary intrinsic motivation, and of course luck is also part of it."

Senoplast founder and chairman of the board

 

Outlook for the future:

"Quality and innovation are the cornerstones of our corporate philosophy. We are convinced that we will only be successfull in the long term through innovation and excellent quality. But it involves a lot more: respect for all partners, honesty and reliability; these are the values that we as a family business hold in high regard."

CEO Senoplast Klepsch & Co. GmbH
