Anplast founder Andrzej Frąckowiak dies aged 74
Andrzej Frąckowiak, the founder of Polish-based Anplast has died of a heart attack at the age of 74.
He started the injection-moulding production company in 1985 using machines designed and built by himself. His son, Filip, who has been Export Manager for the last 15 years, told Angling International that in the 1990s – following a change in the political system across the country – the business moved to a new spacious location, where it began to concentrate on producing items for the fishing tackle industry.
“Since then the company has grown consistently under his management thanks to his new ideas and inventions. One of his proudest achievements was a folding fillet cutting board with a stainless steel scaler, which was to become Anplast’s best-selling item ever.”
