About

Meet the team

Helian Polymers, the company behind PHAradox, has been active in biopolymers since its founding in 2007. It started as a sister company of masterbatch trading company Peter Holland BV (founded in 1974).


Under CEO Ruud Rouleaux' guidance Helian Polymers became an incubator of innovative projects, the most successful being colorFabb, now one of the leading 3D printing filament producers in the world.

After colorFabb was spun off as a separate company in 2015 the decision was made to merge Helian Polymers with Peter Holland and continue the combined business of masterbatches (color concentrates) and bioplastics under a single name and vision.

With nearly a decade-and-a-half of biopolymer experience and the focus on customer specific application development the decision was made to create a new brand which stands for high-quality tailor made application developments: PHAradox.

Helian Polymers

Our location

Helian Polymers is located in Belfeld, the south of the Netherlands, in the same building as innovative companies like colorFabb, Blackbelt 3D and Podoprinter – the latter two being makers of belt technology 3D printers. Powered by 480 solar panels and a geo-thermal installation, it is largely self-sufficient in its energy needs. By working closely with the other companies, Helian Polymers is able to create unique synergy when, for example, developing 3D print filament.

Our proximity to both Germany and Belgium make us a true international company with direct access to the local and euregional maker industry. Being located near Venlo in the south of the Netherlands also puts us in what has been repeatedly been chosen as the best logistics hotspot in Europe.

Custom development is our strength. Find out how.

Helian Polymers is located in Belfeld, together with colorFabb, Blackbelt 3D and PodoPrinter in a high tech solar powered application development center.
