Ravago Facts & Figures

When Raf Van Gorp founded Ravago in 1961, he was given the opportunity to buy the premises of a dynamite company in Arendonk, Belgium. This enabled him to work out the luminous idea he had: recycling production waste from the plastics producing petrochemical companies.  From there, the company grew into a successful service provider to the petrochemical industry as a distributor and reseller of plastic resins. Diversification towards production and distribution of building products guaranteed a second revenue line in Europe.

Today, the Ravago group represents over 6,800,000 metric tons of annual polymer sales serving more than 53,000 active customers through 325+ locations across more than 65+ countries worldwide. Ravago’s production competence consists of 45+ manufacturing facilities of which 19 recycling and compounding plants in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa with a combined annual capacity of over 1,000,000 metric tons; 16 production plants in Europe that are offering finished product solutions for the building sector and 9 plants and 8 application laboratories for our Chemicals & Life Ingredients business. This all would not have been possible without the help of its 9,000 employees.
