As an independent, family-run trading company, we have been distributing engineering plastics from a wide range of manufacturers to companies in the target markets of injection molding and extrusion since 1988. Aside from engineering plastics, we offer the whole range from commodity plastics to high performance plastics.

In 2007 we became an official distributor of SABIC Innovative Plastics, therefore we can supply the entire SABIC IP product range.

Since 1988, XIFA distributes plastics from various manufacturers to companies in the markets of injection molding and extrusion.

In addition to the material supply, we support our customers with technical support, which ranges from the material selection to mold and tool design.

Due to our close relationships with the manufacturing and processing industry we can guarantee a high level of technical know-how. This allows us the compounding of specialty products to individual customer specifications.

The quality of our service and commitment to sustainability have been certified by DEKRA to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015.
