Company history

More than 40 years of extrusion experience…

Alfaplas Ltd was incorporated in 1997 when it took over the printing division of ACP Plastics, which was started as a polythene extrusion company in 1972.  Now, Alfaplas continues to offer vast expertise in the extrusion of different types of polythene, following the merger with ACP Plastics in 2005.

…and 35 years of printing expertise.

We started printing in 1976, moved to our current location on Rotherwas Industrial Estate in 1981 and moving in 2005 to a purpose-built, streamlined Print Department to accommodate the new presses and ancillary equipment.

Alfaplas today

We can print on almost any substrate supplied by our customers so please feel free to contact us for further information.

This new press is capable of printing to 1600mm wide and with a maximum repeat of 1000mm. We also have a solvent-less adhesive DCM laminator capable of laminating webs up to 1000mm wide.
