Sigma Plastics Invests in Four New NGR Lines for Film Scrap Recycling
The Sigma Plastics Group is dramatically increasing its recycling capacity with the addition of four new NGR high output recycling lines. Scheduled to deliver in May 2018, the four S:GRAN 125 machines will reprocess over 4 million pounds per month of film scrap from its in-house film production.
Based in Pompano Beach, Florida, Sigma Plastics has 42 manufacturing facilities producing an annual throughput of over 2 billion pounds of resin. Sigma manufactures a variety of flexible packaging products servicing the industrial, agricultural, food, medical, retail and converter film markets.
The new recycling lines represent an investment of nearly $3 million and will be installed at Sigma Plants in Pompano Beach, Florida, Spartanburg, South Carolina, Jacksonville, Florida and Nashville, Tennessee. With the new NGR lines, these Sigma plants will be able to get the highest possible value from film scrap by using the reprocessed material directly into new film production.
The Sigma Group has over 40 NGR recycling machines operating at plants in the U.S. and Canada.
