Raf Van Gorp founded Ravago in 1961 when he had 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,
Ravago grew into a comprehensive service provider to the
petrochemical industry, constantly pushing the boundaries
of plastics applications and bringing the (re)use of plastics
to the next level, with sustainability continuously on our mind.
Over the years, the ambition of global expansion and market
leadership in polymer and chemical distribution, recycling
and compounding, and building materials became a reality.
Today, the Ravago Group is the number one service provider in the global market of polymers, rubber, and chemicals.
