Sonoco Plastics Europe creates cutting-edge plastics solutions that meet your exacting requirements, as well as those of your customer. We provide both industrial and consumer packaging solutions, with special capabilities for medical devices and the textile industry.

Sonoco Plastics Europe has a long history of serving a variety of customers with demanding requirements in plastics processing and toolmaking. Our company began in Germany as KaRo Werke in 1957, and in 1993 added the Dutch facility Crellin, formerly Technical Bureau Rijke, to add capabilities for special-purpose equipment and precision tools. In 1998 we incorporated Kunststoffwerk Ing. Klaus Burk KG, specializing in injection moulding, extrusion and toolmaking. In 2014, Sonoco joined forces with Weidenhammer Packaging Group, greatly increasing our plastics capabilities. Read more about the Weidenhammer acquisition.
