Plastika – Andrej Mesojedec s.p. has grown over more than thirty years into one of Central Europe’s most renowned specialised packaging companies. From our production facility in Ljubljana, we sell our products to markets in Eastern, Western and Southern Europe. We have become a leading producer of a variety of packaging materials.
Today, under the brand name Stratum, we produce a variety of materials, from LLDPE stretch films, LDPE polyethylene heat-shrinkable films and printed flexible packaging for various industries. Developments in technology and increasing market demands are daily challenges for us. We flexibly adapt our production and products to our customers’ needs.
Every successful company starts with a dream and a vision. Andrej Mesojedec pioneered the production of meshes, films and later printed packaging. He was always striving to optimise the company and to achieve better results with his team.
