Polynova Nissen was founded when the companies Polynova Nordic and RW Nissen merged. RW Nissen was formed in 1946 in the south of Stockholm, Sweden, and was an industrial firm specialising in agricultural products. During the 1970s RW Nissen developed a successful niche in the fields of pallet-wrapping machines and construction products.

Your expert in plastic solutions since 1975


One of Scandinavia’s first soft-plastics distributor

Polynova was established by former employees of RW Nissen in 1975. The company specialised in business aimed at distributors, and thanks to its network of Chinese producers it was one of Scandinavia’s first soft-plastics distributors to import products from Asia. Polynova specialised in offering products made of polyethylene, e.g. waste‑bin liners, bags and construction products.

In 1999 Polynova Nordic bought RW Nissen and founded Polynova Nissen AB – a company with one of the market’s biggest product lines, for both plastic-packaging and pallet-wrapping machines. Since then, Polynova has discontinued their production of  stretch wrappers.
