Vizelpas Ltd, was founded in 1996 in the north of Portugal. The company started its activity with the resale of flexible packaging and cardboard boxes for the textile industry.
In 1998 were held the first investments in productive equipment. The company has acquired a polyethylene extruder and a cutting machine. The company’s gradual growth announced in 2003 the need of a new infrastructure where it could be possible the increase of the production capacity of the company.
In 2005, the crisis in the textile sector became a serious problem and that was the moment to chart a new direction: the strategy of the company turned to be the production of flexible packaging for the food industry and to the international market.
The internationalization process began in 2008 with the sale of products to Spain and France. The continuous growth of the business and the constant demand of the food industry impulse new investments. This time, the company invested in larger infrastructures (2010) and in new production and monitoring equipment that allowed us to expand the range of products available in the market. Between 2010 and 2016 the company continued to invest in new equipments and acquired two co-extruders (7 and 9 layers co-extruders), 1 rewinder and invested in the BRC certification.
Today, the company exports to Spain, France, Ireland, UK, Belgium, Denmark, Morocco and Tunisia. The turnover resulting on exports represents about 45% of total turnover.
