The foundation of Dagöplast AS
It was a coincidence, like always! The previous owner and the creator of Dagöplast AS Leif Andersson was going to visit his friend’s summerhouse in the island of Hiiumaa. They booked a rooms to a hotel in Kärdla. When they arrived on Friday evening, they had no rooms. Luckily they had seen sign said “Liilia hotel” on the road, so they decided to go there instead. Saturday morning, when Leif woke up, he heard a sound of a plastic machine. He walked around the area and found someone who was working with injection molding. This factory looked really nice and organized and he started to think : “Here I could start something”. There wasn’t any know-how about film production, but at least they knew something about plastics. He found out, who was the owner of this plastic industry, and they thought that they should do something together. The idea started in 1997.
There was not big plans at the beginning. Idea was just to start somewhere and to follow the development. They started carefully with some old machines. From that time it has been ongoing. Growing and growing every year.
