Maximo Olivas has many years of experience as a manager in SMEs in the plastics industry, and his network in Spain and other European countries is particularly valuable," says Yoav Horowitz, Chairman of the Board of Alkemy. "Flome will use Alkemy's recycled plastic sheets for its current products while developing additional value-added products that can utilize Alkemy's recycled plastic sheets. By using Alkemy sheets Flome will offer products made from recycled plastic and thus increase the attractiveness for its customers who increasingly want to reduce their carbon footprint ".
