ADG Solutions, Fairfield, Conn., will cut the ribbon this month to open a technical center near Atlanta in which it will showcase its recycling and compounding equipment and provide rebuilding services and spare parts. The 10,000 ft² facility, in Tucker, Ga., will house compounding and recycling equipment from Davis-Standard, Pawcatuck, Conn., as well as machinery from three Italian suppliers: Screen changers from Fimic; washing and separation systems from Tecnofer; and pelletizers from Filtec. The Italian machines will be modified in Georgia for the North American market.
