Facts & Figures

EREMA: 20 percent increase in revenue during fiscal year 2020/21

The start of the fiscal year 2020/21 was particularly challenging due to the first Corona lockdown imposed in Austria almost at the same time and the worldwide spread of the pandemic. Nevertheless, the development work and investments of the past years paid off impressively. EREMA Group, which consists of EREMA Group GmbH and its subsidiaries EREMA, PURE LOOP, UMAC, 3S, KEYCYCLE and PLASMAC, was able to continue its course of growth and can once again report a successful conclusion to the year. A total turnover of EUR 250 million represents an increase in revenue of more than 20 percent compared to the financial year 2019/20.

"In a year that has presented each of us with extraordinary professional and private challenges, we are particularly proud that we have succeeded so well in creating a safe working environment for our employees, in fulfilling our customers' expectations and in launching worldwide the innovations that we presented at K 2019," is how the year is summed up by Manfred Hackl, CEO of EREMA Group GmbH.

Technological answers to increased quality demands

Around 7,000 systems supplied by EREMA Group companies are currently in operation in more than 100 countries worldwide. The number of employees has risen to a total of 660. In technological terms, growth in all segments is based on the high quality of recycled pellets achieved using these recycling solutions. These systems make it possible to now use post-consumer recyclate for packaging in the cosmetics and food sectors, which is why recycling companies see their purchase as an important investment for the future. This can be seen, for example, in the increase of orders for INTAREMA® TVEplus® systems with ReFresher for the production of odour-optimised recyclate. The recycling capacity of these systems sold during the past fiscal year alone, is 250,000 tonnes per year.

In PET recycling, customers producing packaging for the beverage industry are increasingly deciding to go for VACUNITE® technology, which was launched on the market two years ago. Just recently, Belgian PET bottle and preform manufacturer Resilux announced that it will double its bottle-to-bottle recycling capacity. In addition, EREMA's VACUREMA® technology is a process that is not only suitable for bottle-to-bottle applications but also for various other processing capabilities, such as PET to sheet, PET to fibre and PET to strapping.
