Ducor Petrochemicals exclusively Partners with Plastribution to Distribute DuCare Products in the United Kingdom and Ireland

Ducor Petrochemicals, a leading manufacturer of polypropylene product solutions, is thrilled to announce its exclusive partnership with Plastribution. Under this collaboration Plastribution will serve as the sole distribution partner for Ducor’s groundbreaking DuCare product range in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

DuCare: Transforming Healthcare and Life Science Applications

DuCare, a specialised product line developed by Ducor Petrochemicals, is meticulously designed for medical devices and other life science applications. These high-quality polypropylene materials meet rigorous standards, making them ideal for critical healthcare and life science needs. DuCare polypropylene is suitable for various applications, including injection molding and compound manufacturing.

The DuCare product range is underpinned by the DuCare Service Concept, which embodies the principles of pharmaceutical Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). It emphasizes awareness, change control, and meticulous documentation, all encapsulated through ISO 13485 certification. DuCare delivers a range of benefits to enhance healthcare and life science quality and safety.

Ducor remains committed to sustainable solutions, exemplified by the ISCC PLUS certification offered for all DuCare products and the entire Ducor portfolio. ISCC PLUS is a global certification that covers the entire supply chain based on mass balance accounting, ensuring compliance with the highest environmental and social standards. By establishing a chain of custody, it guarantees traceability for both renewable-based materials and verifies transparent mass balance accounting.
