We are looking for you

Are you working on solutions to avoid or at least significantly reduce negative impacts of materials along the entire value chain – from production to processing and even beyond utilization? Are the solutions developed for a recyclable or fossil-free future of the polymer industry? Do you believe that your ideas have the potential to create a sustainable, transformative impact and that now is the time to make your vision a reality? Then let's talk about how we can achieve our goals together.

We offer you

As part of the Feddersen Group, we have access to extensive expertise and a global network offering versatile options for strategic partnerships, market access as well as financing opportunities. We offer you long-term collaboration to develop your ideas with the support of a purpose-driven team and several industry experts. Whether conceptual, market launch or global scaling – we can provide extensive support within all project phases.

We want to achieve
together with you

Together with you we aim to make a noticeable contribution to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. We are driven by the vision of a sustainable polymer industry. Let's jointly find out what our future industry might look like: Recyclates or bio-plastics? Improved waste recycling, functioning closed-loop systems, the reduction of fossil-based raw materials through artificial intelligence or other innovative solutions? port F builds bridges between the tried and tested and the new. We see it as our responsibility to create a sustainable impact together with you.

Your idea. The next big thing?
let's talk

Crew

We want to make a difference. In the Feddersen Group. In the polymer industry. In our society. What sets us apart: Our experience. Our expertise. Our mindsets. We know that we can only achieve great things if we meet on equal terms. In dialogue with you. All together.

feddersen group

With the internationally operating Feddersen Group port F has a strong foundation stone. The group's core competencies lie in the development, production, and distribution of technical polymers. Mechanical engineering and the development of extruders, engineering services, foreign trade and wholesale in stainless steel, raw materials, technical products and polymer processing machines are further important pillars of the group.

Today, the Feddersen Group still sees itself in the tradition of its founder: An independent and robust family business that represents strong values like humanity and long-term commitment in dealing with employees, customers and partners. At the same time, it is facing up to the many current and future challenges in a rapidly changing world. With port F the group has founded a unit that can face those challenges and act completely independently of the core business.

feddersen foundation

The K.D. Feddersen Foundation was established by company founder Karl Detlef Feddersen whose desire was to return something to society. The Foundation has been operating a retirement home in Hamburg since 1984. The work of the non-profit K.D. Feddersen Foundation is significantly supported by the dividends distributed by K.D. Feddersen Holding GmbH. In recent years, the residential complex has been expanded and comprehensively modernised in several construction phases.
