In December 2019, we launched a web shop with a minimum order quantity of 10 packaging units. With just a few clicks of the mouse, our packaging buckets are available from the same source as they are to major brands in the market. And the order will be delivered to you within two working days!
The web shop initially offers the option of delivery in the Netherlands only. In a few months, this will be extended to all European countries. The range on offer will be increased at the same time. From now on, you can order the buckets that you need for your next packaging requirement through our web shop, simply and quickly! (link to web shop)
Day 2:How customization works
Marcel is Area Sales Manager at Dijkstra Plastics and shares how customization works within our company. The collaboration with our customer is key within this process.
Day 1: At Dijkstra Plastics
Lisa grew up with Dijkstra Plastics and will tell us more about the beginning of the company, the culture, and how it has grown through the years. She will kick off this event. Let’s see what she has to say.
Local circular economy
Veolia Polymers, Dijkstra Plastics and Koninklijke Van Wijhe Verf tail the circular economy a little closer with she paint bucket of 100% recycled plastic. With this paint bucket they show that circularity works: as long as you give it a chance and keep working on it together.
Reusable packaging bucket with folding lid
With the launch of our new Christmas film "What a year', we would also like to put one of the packaging buckets from this film in the spotlight. The rectangular packaging bucket (model: 17 GL RH) can be seen several times. This bucket is of course available with a regular lid but can also be equipped with a so-called folding lid. This allows part of the lid to be folded open. Watch the Christmas movie or read more about this packaging below.
Second wave of corona
In the Netherlands, as well as elsewhere in Europe, the corona virus is again gaining more control over our way of live. At Dijkstra Plastics we are actively working on keeping our sites and personnel as safe as possible. This must ensure that the operational activities can continue. Steps are also being taken in our product range and we can offer more solutions for several applications.
Facelift for our office in Almelo
In recent years, the HK Plastics logo was still on the facade in Almelo. In recent weeks, a lot of work has been done to give the Almelo office building a facelift, so that now, beautifully lit, the Dijkstra Plastics Logo can be proudly displayed in appropriate colors.
The beer brew bucket!
The 5 litre pail contains all ingredients and kit to brew 5 litres of beer. The pail is also used as a fermentation vessel in the brewing process. There is a bucket for every use!

The British Retail Consortium (BRC)introduced this certification programme in 1998. The programme focuses on food safety and quality within an organisation. A company is tested on more than 300 aspects to check to what extent it meets the standard that is set. A rating indicates to what degree a company complies with the GSFI-recognised standard of the BRC.
Aspects such as traceability, cleanliness, operational control, training and management of suppliers are included, which together form the basis of the BRC. Thanks to the name that the BRC has built up, it has been a reputable name in the world of certification programmes for years and we are proud to be able to show our results within this programme.
The FSSC 22000 Standard has been created through Stichting Certificatie Voedselveiligheid (SCV). As a food-oriented version of the ISO 22000 Standard, this certification programme has been set up as a global guideline in food safety and quality within various industries. This standard is aimed at the entire production chain and as such, it is ideally suited for international harmonisation, partly thanks to the recognition by the GFSI. In addition to its connection with ISO 22000, the FSSC 22000 has many comparisons with the HACCP criteria, making it an attractive variant with the best of both worlds from these programmes. Thanks to the internationally accepted nature of the FSSC and the chain-wide approach within this certification programme, we recognise a strong food safety management system in this standard.
