PQA is a manufacturing company in the city of Manizales, Caldas, Colombia, with more than 20 years experience and a leader in the manufacturing of co-extruded and penta-extruded plastic films for applications in the agricultural, industrial and commercial sectors.
PQA’s area of R+D has its own research installations in order to carry out evaluations on the new references to be delivered to the market and is supervised by expert personnel; and these installations are strategically located. PQA’s R+D team designs alternative options for the productive processes, implementing significant changes that respond to regional challenges.
These projects have encouraged the use of plastic in agriculture in traditional production areas, allowing for diversification in productive systems.
