Nexeo Solutions to Distribute Albis Plastics' Nylon Compounds in North America
Albis’ Altech and Altech Eco nylon 6 and 66 prime and recycled compounds are made in the new Duncan, South Carolina compounding facility.
A distribution agreement is underway between Albis Plastics Corp., Duncan, S.C., and Nexeo Solutions, The Woodlands, Texas, whereby the latter will distribute within North America Albis’ Altech and Altech Eco prime and recycled nylon 6 and 66 specialty compounds. Both product lines are manufactured at the Duncan compounding facility which went into operation in third quarter 2017—the first time Albis Plastics began its own manufacturing in North America. Previously, its products were produced by a local tolling partner or imported from Europe.
Said Albis’ president & CEO Stefan Fuhlendorf, “We are extremely happy to add Nexeo Solutions as an additional sales channel to complement our activities in North America. This partnership will greatly enhance our geographical coverage in the USA and Canada. Nexeo is very well positioned in the local market due to their extensive sales, technical and logistics network, which supports our existing commitment to high standards in customer service.”
Key drivers for the trajectory of resin prices include supply outpacing demand, lower feedstock costs, and uncertainty about coronavirus effects.
AGS Technology Inc. in Schaumburg, Ill., was started in 1995 with a simple concept: to be the low-cost custom injection molder of automotive parts by using recycled plastics formulated to exacting quality standards.
As high-performance materials follow the path taken by some commodity resins, farming could replace drilling as suppliers rely more on plants than oil or gas for feedstocks.
