Plastedil S.A. (joint-stock company) is a Swiss engineering and service company based in Mendrisio. Its experience dates back to 1963.


Innovation, top-quality products, as well as customer satisfaction and environmental protection are the keys to the company’s worldwide success. Plastedil, sole owner of patented PLASTBAU® technology and brand, is specialized in the design, construction and sale of machines and complete turnkey plants for the manufacturing of PLASTBAU® building elements made of EPS (expanded polystyrene).

Plastedil also provides a careful assistance for the start-up, maintenance and technological updating of its machines and plants. Plastedil’s products are extremely user-friendly and assure the best results as far as quality and cost- effectiveness are concerned.

In 1979 Plastedil invented the PLASTBAU® system and built the machine for the moulding of continuous EPS elements reinforced with metallic parts. Since then, our R&D Department, lead by Mr. Cretti, is always working to find new technologies and new solution to be a pioneer of the building market.
