Skaza is an innovative, fast growing, market-oriented European company in the field of plastic processing. With 30 years of experience, 300 employees, presence in 58 markets, sustainable vision of the future, collaboration with Ikea, Toshiba, Landis Gyr, Gorenje and other international manufacturers and retailers, Skaza is gaining global visibility. 

We had a chance to meet and talk to the inspiring leader Tanja Skaza, CEO at Plastika Skaza, Ana Laura Rednak, Executive Director at Plastika Skaza and representatives of the company. Through the values of Plastika Skaza – freedom, objective, experience, nature, and courage – we learned about their success story, plans for the future and bold ideas in linking technology with nature.

Change starts with people.

Tanja Skaza, CEO, Plastika Skaza

The fact that even in Slovenia one can find companies such as Plastika Skaza, which sets an example of successful working and leadership practices not only here but beyond our borders as well, hardly leaves you indifferent. Visiting their business and industrial complex was consequently as educational as it was inspiring and at the same time provocative, since the demonstration of these new business ideals provided for a thorough revision of anything we come across with in our current working environment.

Bojana Kenda, Aviat

Meeting Tanja Skaza was a privilege for me. I believe that freedom, innovation, personal growth, creativity and especially new approaches to the business world are the ones that will lead us to progress in the future. Having to navigate a young team in one boat that sails in the same direction, leaving control of the paddles and giving everyone the power to steer, regardless of age or gender – it takes courage and an open-minded leader. On the other hand, this demonstrates trust, provides inspiration and it also gives motivation to the youngsters.

Diana Slapnik, Lek

It is truly inspiring to feel as much energy, target orientation, opportunities and innovation in one place.
