Description

This Croatian company has been family owned for more than 30 years. Today company owns more than 20 machines for the production and processing of plastic products. Now, the company wants to own their unique product - semi-soluble plastic bags. Semi-soluble plastic bags are for washing dirty or contaminated clothing based on PE-LD/PVA material. It is the the only producer in the world that produces high quality and disinfecting products for washing contaminated clothing based on this material. These bags are most commonly used in hospitals and professional laundry washing companies. Main advantage of the bags is their toughness, resistance to mechanical and chemical damage in order to prevent bag bursting and dropping contaminated clothing. The basic standards for laundry washing in the European Union are the RABC system (Risk Analysis Bio-contamination Control) that are in use throughout the healthcare facilities in Europe under EN 14065 RABC standard. The washing standard EN 14065 RABC describes the steps that must be taken to minimise the risk of transmission and spread of laundry infection. It is common knowledge that providing clean laundry is a basic requirement for patient care. Namely, laundry from health care institutions, military, police or other places that come into direct or indirect contact with people is a possible carrier of infectious diseases, and therefore appropriate procedures should be provided for handling such laundry, as inappropriate laundry operations may put the risk of infection on the staff handling the laundry and washing it. Commonly used and contaminated/contagious laundry is stored at the point of occurrence in water-soluble bags and undergoes a washing process in the laundry room to obtain clean laundry. According to existing solutions, contaminated/contagious laundry is stored in a red bag of soluble alginate fibers (made of natural polymers), inside a transparent plastic laundry bag. A water-soluble bag is placed directly in the washing machine to minimize contact and prevent transmission of infection to laundry staff or to prevent contamination of the environment. The company is looking for foreign partners with whom they will sign distribution services agreement, commercial agency agreement or manufacturing agreement. The company is looking for a distributor to sell their products or an agent that will represent their products. Also, the company offers to manufacture these bags under manufacturing agreement. Because these bags are unique, there is a very good opportunity to offer the company's products to potential foreign partners.
