Plastics Cluster

The Plastics Cluster was established in February 2006 as an Interest Association of Legal Entities with the aim to create a communication platform for its members – plastic product manufacturers. The main reason for cluster establishment was mainly the traditionally strong position of the plastics industry in the Zlín region (together with the rubber industry it represents the most powerful industrial segment of the region). Another reason is lack of qualified workforce, missing research and development facilities for plastic processors, the need for appropriate negotiation position in the purchase of services and products, and effective enforcement of the sector interests.
