Innovation, global presence and future sustainability
The story of DoubleCOOL
Back in 1952, two Dutch 22 year old school friends formed their own company: Polyplastic. The boys first started to sell acrylic sheet, but later they created their own, innovative acrylic production facility in Rotterdam.
Today the Polyplastic Group is the European market leader for innovative acrylic glazing for motorhomes, caravans and boats. Acrylic is a safer, more transparent, and lighter weight alternative to glass, making it ideal for automotive, construction and energy applications.
Polyplastic’s latest innovation is lightweight double pane acrylic doors for refrigerated cabinets. A patented unique frameless solution both for retrofit and OEM manufacturers is recognised, worldwide for energy savings of up to 60% in supermarkets.
DoubleCOOL is the name of the company that designs, produces and distributes these acrylic doors for retail environments.
DoubleCOOL has operations across Europe, including our 52,000 sq ft HQ and warehouse here at Uttoxeter, in the Midlands.
Today, the Polyplastic Group has 250 employees and is owned by a Nasdaq listed corporation.
