Our history

Our history

Mälarplast originated with Aktiebolaget Pollobak, which was set up in Eskilstuna, Sweden, at the beginning of the 1970s. Some of our customers have been with us for most of our journey that began with the new start-up.
In 1986 the assets of Bengt Wall in the newly-started company, AB Mälarplast, were acquired. A complementary acquisition was made a few years later of Täljeplast AB, and these operations were quickly assimilated into Mälarplast.

In 2001, Mälarplast bought the small saucepan manufacturer August Lundhs Metallfabrik AB. In the same year active work began on the board when Peter Wall was elected together with the entrepreneur Anders Wahlström who became the company’s chairman. Several years later a generational change took place when Peter Wall took over as CEO and later also as sole owner when Mälarplast and August Lundh were incorporated into the Wallent Group.

In 2008 MALKO was acquired, and the pan factory began to be remodelled into August Lundh, a complete supplier of tableware. Two years later Mälarplast was awarded a contract with SAS to make and sell its travel catering range. In connection with this, the remaining pan production ended leaving August Lundh to focus entirely on plastic articles.

Sustainability and the environment have been a top priority with both Mälarplast and August Lundh since before the turn of the millennium. Our work in these areas has propelled us into a leading positon for conversion towards greener plastic. That is why we now call ourselves Sweden’s greenest plastics company.
