Since the company was founded in the 1950s, the aim has been to pursue a successful niche policy with strong branded products. POLO-KAL®, on the market since 1957, is the best example of POLOPLAST's consistent brand policy: the first generation of the house drainage pipe system, made of grey PVC, was regarded as an essential component of the following generations. From 1960 POLO-KAL® was manufactured from the high-quality material ABS, also in grey color, and was named POLO-KAL HT (HT = high temperature resistant). A decisive, forward-looking innovation succeeded in 1994: POLO-KAL NG (NG = New Generation), a sound-absorbing, multi-layer building drainage pipe system made of PP, was launched on the market. POLO-KAL NG distinguishes itself from the standard grey of the drainage pipes. Until today the color pigeon blue emphasizes the uniqueness of the POLOPLAST building drainage pipes and is a unique feature of POLO-KAL NG. It is now protected by trademark. In 2013, POLOPLAST set completely new standards in the field of building drainage with the market launch of POLO-KAL XS (XS = eXtra Fast, eXtra Slim, eXtra Still, eXtra Safe), the fourth POLO-KAL® generation, and once again consolidated this supporting foundation for the future.
The brand name of POLO-KAL® has a history that reaches back as far as 60 years. It represents continuous innovation, reliability and invariably high quality – of the highly sound-insulating plastic building drainage pipes of the fourth generation. The recognizability value and the commitment of POLOPLAST to the brand are thereby increased. These are essential components of POLOPLAST's brand policy.
