Who we are

ERG S.A. was established in 1896 in Poland under the name of “Akcyjne Towarzystwo Elektryczność” [Electricity Joint-Stock Company] with its registered office in Warsaw and a manufacturing division in Ząbkowice. Its business consisted in the manufacturing of chlorinated lime, caustic soda and coal products. One hundred years later, in 1996, ERG S.A. changed its production profile and started manufacturing polyethylene film using extrusion blow moulding. In 2005, the company was floated on the Warsaw Stock Exchange.

The company has state-of-the-art plant and machinery, making it possible to manufacture over 12 thousand tonnes of various types of highly specialised film annually. Regular investments in technology, talented employees with many years of experience and a consistent policy focusing strongly on new product development allow ERG S.A. to successfully strive to achieve the leading position in its sector, not only in Poland, but in the whole of Europe.

The selling policy of ERG S.A. is not limited to the domestic market. Our key customers are located mainly in Europe, but also on other continents. Export accounts for more than 20% of the company’s total sales. We work with international corporations which are leaders in the industrial, automotive, food, beverage and printing industries.

The company employs over 180 motivated people, some with over 25 years of experience in the industry, which they draw on when manufacturing high-quality products in their everyday work. Production takes place continuously, on a 24/7 basis. Rigorous analyses performed during the selection of raw materials and round-the-clock quality control of the products we manufacture allow us to receive invariably high ratings from our business partners. Our experience and expertise, state-of-the-art machinery, development potential and individual approach to customers make us a cutting-edge manufacturing plant that meets the highest requirements of those who choose to buy from us.
