Pollution of our oceans by plastics and microplastics has regularly attracted attention in recent years and months. This global problem has been underestimated for a long time. Operation Clean Sweep (OCS) is an initiative of the European plastics processing industry to strongly reduce the pollution of our environment starting already from the production phase. Bekina as a group of companies wishes to fulfil a leading role within the plastics sector with regard to this topic, and in a broader sense in the field of sustainability in general.`

On July 1st 2020, Bekina Indurub turned 50 years old! We would have liked to celebrate this during a great party at our company, but unfortunately, due to the Covid pandemic, this plan was cancelled. Still, we didn’t not want this festive event to pass by just like that. That’s why we surprised our customers with a Bekina Indurub party box, filled with all kinds of treats from our region. This way we could thank our customers for the many years of collaboration and partnership and for the trust in our company.
Sustainable Entrepreneurship is embedded in our company's DNA. Every day, our people work together to address several of the United Nations’ areas of development - the so-called 17 SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).

‘7 SINS’ is the popular gin from the Knokke-based company WowConcepts. To launch a new gin at the height of the gin trend, you need a convincing concept. The company therefore wanted to get in fast with a unique bottle cover, but had no previous experience in developing plastic products.
As of today, Bekina® Indurub can offer its customers Cradle to Cradle certified products based on rigid and flexible plastics.
This new adjustable plate system consists of a TPE-E suspension with 4 identical and symmetric legs, which ensure an even & stable compression when put under load.
Bekina® Indurub will be launching a new product in its Smartline range at Interzum 2017. Interzum, which takes place 16th till 19th May, is the place to be for the leading and most innovative companies in the furniture industry.

7 SINS ‘PRIDE’ is a promising new gin that is not only distinctive in its taste, but also in its appearance. This gin, which will be launched on the Belgian market this autumn, will have a soft to the touch bottle cover.
