FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Lawrenceville, Georgia (March 7, 2019) — US Plastics Recovery, a leading processor of post-industrial plastic scrap, will showcase its capabilities at the upcoming Plastics Recycling Conference in Washington, DC. The previous year’s conference had over 2,000 attendees from 35 countries and 200 exhibitors and sponsors. This year’s conference will be held in Washington, DC from March 11-13, 2019.
The March event will be USPR’s second time presenting at the conference. “It is an important venue for USPR, because of the opportunity to interface with leading plastic product producers and compounders needing to liquidate their scrap or needing toll processing services,” stated Steve Hogan, Chief Trading Officer of US Plastics Recovery. “USPR tripled production capacity in 2018. We moved into a much larger facility, added a second float-sink-wash system, added a brand-new 62″ 150 horsepower Vecoplan shredder, and completely refurbished our existing Vecoplan 70″ 200 horsepower HiTorc shredder. We expanded and balanced our entire process, which includes shredding, granulating, screening, washing, elutriating, floating, and brokering. Our new plant is outfitted with the latest IT and it is hungry. We added many clients at last year’s conference and we hope to do the same this year.”
Professionals from the plastics industry come to the conference to advance their learning about new machinery, technology, and suppliers in the plastics industry. The conference provides compounders, molders, and other plastics firms with the venue to engage with service suppliers like US Plastics Recovery to discuss how to advance their materials processing performance. The conference and tradeshow are expected to draw more than 2,000 attendees to the DC area.
US Plastics Recovery will host an exhibit at booth #239 at the conference in the Gaylord National Resort and Conference Center. We invite conference attendees to visit the USPR booth to learn more about our company and to speak to our technical sales team about how USPR can help them with their plastics scrap and raw material requirements.
Established in 2006, USPR is a leading re-processor of post-industrial polymer scrap and provider of destruction services. With its facility just north of Atlanta in Lawrenceville, Georgia, USPR currently processes approximately 30 million pounds of scrap polymer back into quality molding materials suitable as a substitute for virgin plastics for the automotive and other industries around the world.
