Opens New Plant in Waverly, Ohio to handle demand
Geo-Tech Polymers announced today it has opened its second recycling facility in Ohio to serve the decorated plastics recycling demands of the retail packaging industry. Geo-Tech has gained traction in the market over the last 12 months for its unique ability to remove coatings such as screen printing and labels from plastic substrate materials using FDA-approved detergents. The approach is able to transform decorated plastic scrap into recycled resin that can be certified back to its original prime specifications.
"Geo-Tech solutions appeal to companies that want to generate significant savings by employing green solutions that are smart and effective," explains Doug Gels. "With 100,000 square feet of space, we're able to better support the retail packaging market in their efforts to recycle decorated plastics scrap into high-quality product at considerable savings."
As the cost of petroleum and plastics rise, the ability to turn scrap into product is critical, according to Gels. The company recently put together a case study that showed examples of companies in several industries yielding savings of over $1 million in the first year alone.
"When you can show those sorts of numbers, owners and financial managers understand that they've been missing a critical business opportunity," Gels stated. "We're here to fill in the gap."
