The History of Trioplast
Trioplast was founded by Vilhelm Larsson in 1965 in Smålandsstenar. The business concept was to manufacture packagings using the ’new’ material polyethylene, which it was felt offered good growth potential.
The company grew steadily and the annual turnover after ten years reached SEK 35 million. That same year, the first sales company outside Sweden was established.
In the middle of the 1970s, brothers Bo and Lars Larsson took over the company after their father. Bo Larsson became the sole shareholder in 1984 and the Group’s new parent company, Trioplast Industrier AB, was founded at the same time.
The Trioplast Group’s long-term strategy has been to generate growth, both organically and through acquisitions. Over the years,the Group has carried out a number of key acquisitions and the Trioplast Group is now one of the leading manufacturers in Europe of polyethylene film.
