Our history

Klöckner Pentaplast (kp) was founded in 1965, and since then we have continued to deliver strong growth with game-changing innovation and service excellence.
With the acquisition of LINPAC in 2017, we took our customer proposition to a new level. We became an even better research and development (R&D) powerhouse and a business with a full portfolio of new technologies, solutions and formulations that can anticipate market trends, solve customer problems and help build brand identities.
