The group’s annual revenue is approximately EUR 20 million and it employs over 40 people in the Baltics. According to Taavi Reigam, CEO of Proplastik OU in Estonia, the transaction is an important milestone for the group: “Proplastik is now part of the leading international player in the sector. It allows to further improve our product offering and service level to our customers across the Baltics. It is good news for all our clients and employees.”
