When it comes down to people it is not just about what skills or capabilities you might have but also about chemistry, which we believe is even more important. To give you a better idea what life at United Group really is like and how we live our values, we’ve asked two of our colleagues to talk openly about it.

Here is what they had to say:

Ana Rebola,
Application & Quality Control

“It is a great satisfaction to make part of an environmental driven company like United Biopolymers. Over here I have found a team that works together researching biodegradable solutions towards one of the most actual sustainability topic: New bio solutions as plastic alternatives. It is gratifying to make part of a company and a team with such focus, providing me the possibility to have a word in our planet preservation.“

Joana Góis,
PhD, R&D manager

“I consider joining United Biopolymers team as a natural process after more than a decade as Academic researcher in the area of polymer science.
This new career step has revealed itself not only a challenge but also a grateful decision. Day to day we seek and develop innovative solutions creating the next-generation of starch-based bioplastics. At United Biopolymers we have the opportunity to make an impact every day and contribute to the demand for GuiltfreePlastics® solutions. It is a privilege and satisfaction to be part of such engaging project in a growing and open-minded company such as United Biopolymers is.“

Silvia Peralta,
R&D Manager, United Resins, S.A.

“Having been part of United Resins right from the start, I have to say that the journey to our success to date has been both exciting and rewarding. We are a young, strong, creative and motivated team. Our laboratory, like our factory, is equipped with the latest technology and high levels of automation. I love working with resins as with most natural products it is an additional challenge to understand and control them. Our products are cutting edge, and we thrive to develop solutions for challenging applications and markets. If you’re looking for a professional challenge and personal growth opportunities, then I encourage to join us.”
