In 1991, CurTec arose from the former Curver Plastics. Curver had a long history in plastics and was part of the chemical company DSM when management decided to refrain from further investments in the company. One of the former employees however saw much potential and founded CurTec through a Management Buy Out, enabling further growth in packaging.
Beyond its successful drum product lines, CurTec developed new packaging lines such as Click Pack containers, Packo pots, Nestable drums and also tailor made packaging designed to specific customer needs. New applications were discovered in existing segments such as pharma and chemicals, as well as other industries, where the added value of High Performance Packaging contributed to better products and satisfied customers.
