Our Mission

At Ravago we define our mission as a sustainable service. We provide a superior distribution, resale, compounding and recycling service for plastic and elastomeric raw materials. The quality of service to our customers is reliable and technically proficient. Ravago conducts this business ethically in a spirit of partnership with our suppliers and stewardship with our staff.

Ravago Group

When Raf Van Gorp founded Ravago in 1961, he was given the opportunity to buy the premises of a dynamite company in Arendonk, Belgium. This enabled him to work out the luminous idea he had: recycling production waste from the plastics producing petrochemical companies. From there, the company grew into a successful service provider to the petrochemical industry as a distributor and reseller of plastic resins. Diversification towards production and distribution of building products guaranteed a second revenue line in Europe. Today, the Ravago Group is the number one service provider in the global market of plastics, rubber and chemicals.

Our Values

The essence of Ravago can be captured by its values. In spite of being a fast-growing multinational, Ravago insists on maintaining the family culture and does this by promoting close interaction not only between employees, but also with customers and suppliers. We attach high importance to operational discretion and human modesty, and manage objectively with an open mind and a flexible organization. Our goal is to achieve sustainable growth, both by nurturing internal talent and by attracting external talent. Ravago operates as an ethical company pursuing excellence, which is only possible thanks to the company’s most valuable assets: the people.

Ravago has taken multiple actions to verify the absence of forced labor, slavery and human trafficking within its group and supply chain.
