Plasdan was estabilished
as a Danish – Portuguese
 venture in 1989,
in Marinha Grande.

In its early days, Plasdan’s core activity was the sales of injection moulding machines and associated equipment. As business grew, it ended up extending its practice to the mould engineering and project management areas, as well as commencing sales of its own range of thermoplastic equipments.

In the late nineties, the mould sector boomed and the company was granted with the ISO-9001 certification.

In order to give the clients better and faster solutions, in 2000, Plasdan created a department for the development and manufacturing of multi-shot injection moulding systems. Since then, this area has been continuously grown within the firm, and has become what is currently the company’s  main activity.


At this moment, and more than ever, the company is committed to the manufacture of the most innovative and efficient fully-electric add-on systems for the multi-injection moulding industry, through the development of various technologies that deliver more sustainable and flexible solutions to customers.


Between 2009 and 2010, the company conducted comprehensive restructuring, focusing its strategy on the add-on equipment.


In 2007, the company extended its worldwide representation and  acquired several patents, including, among others, the Interchangeable support system for multi-component moulds (C-Frame) and the Modular, non-pressurised deposit in thermoplastic material.
