Ara Partners’ Repeats Group invests in Polimero

Repeats Group (Repeats), a pan-European plastics recycling platform focused on the production of high-quality recycled low-density polyethylene (LDPE) from post-industrial and commercial films, and a portfolio company of Ara Partners, has made an investment in Polimero, a producer of recycled LDPE located in northern Italy. 

The financial terms of the transaction have not been disclosed. 

Repeats’ investment in Polimero marks its expansion into Italy, an important step in building a pan-European plastics recycling platform. It follows Repeats’ recent two investments in Spain and the Netherlands, with expansion into other European countries planned for later this year. 
Polimero uses a mechanical process to convert plastic waste into resin suitable for commercial and industrial applications. As part of Repeats, Polimero plans to continue expanding its production to meet the growing demand for recycled LDPE in Europe.
Polimero is led by Simonetta Tiberto, who has been with the company since 2010 and will continue to lead the Italian operations and execution of its growth plan.
