Borealis is a leading provider of innovative solutions in the fields of polyolefins, base chemicals and fertilisers. With headquarters in Vienna, Austria, the company currently has around 6,500 employees and operates in over 120 countries.
Borealis generated €7.7 billion in sales revenue and a net profit of €988 million in 2015. The International Petroleum Investment Company (IPIC) of Abu Dhabi owns 64% of the company, with the remaining 36% belonging to OMV, an international, integrated oil and gas company based in Vienna. Borealis provides services and products to customers around the world in collaboration with Borouge, a joint venture with the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).
With over 50 years' experience in the industry, Borealis is an innovative and reliable supplier of superior polyolefin plastic materials used in consumer products, advanced packaging and fibre.
Superior and proprietary Borealis technologies make advanced applications possible in flexible packaging (including lamination film, shrink and protection film, stand-up pouches, food packaging); rigid packaging (caps and closures, bottles, thin wall and transport packaging); and non-woven and technical fibres (filtration systems, hygiene products, technical textiles).
These value-added packaging and fibre innovations play a role in safeguarding the quality and safety of consumer and industrial products, but also fulfil demand for enhanced functionality and convenience. Plastic food packaging, for example, helps protect and preserve food from farm to fork. Spoilage is avoided thanks to efficient filling systems and leak-resistant packaging. Food stays fresher longer and less must be thrown away. What is more, the consumer has a wider range of choices when it comes to convenient and appealing packaging formats.
Also white goods (from washing machines to refrigerators and air conditioning units) and small appliances (from toasters to power tools) are made more robust yet lighter, more energy efficient yet visually appealing, thanks to Borealis' advanced PP solutions.
Borealis packaging solutions are making everyday life easier.
