HESTA can look back at a long history of tradition, as the company was already established in 1948 and, since then, has continuously worked on new innovations. We are proud of the fact that we are one of the few companies to have operated in the market since the beginning of blow moulding. This has led to us having played a large part in blow moulding becoming so widespread and reaching a high technological level.
