SPARTANBURG, S.C. (Dec. 15, 1:05 p.m. ET) — Two German sister companies that make plastics recycling equipment have launched direct sales and service for North America, by forming B+B America LLC and Bezner America LLC in Spartanburg, S.C.

They had been selling through a sales agent.

B+B builds turnkey recycling plants to turn waste plastics back into flake for reuse, said Dirk Leiber, president of B+B America.

The U.S. recycling rate for PET bottles—the most-recycled plastic—was 29 percent for 2010.

“B+B and Bezner view the United States and Canada as being one of the upcoming markets for waste handling and recycling equipment,” Leiber said. “American has a huge potential to grow in that area.”

The German companies are B+B Anlagenbau GmbH and Bezner Anlagen & Maschinenbau GmbH, both based in Ravensburg, Germany.

The turnkey systems include bale-breaking equipment and machinery to sort plastic by resin type and color, clean the material and grind it into flake.

Leiber said all the plastics recycling equipment is being marketed under B+B America. The Spartanburg facility will include sales, service and technical support.

The company has local sales people on the West Coast, Northeast and southern United States.
