WEST BABYLON, N.Y. — Captree Chemical Corp. has formed a joint venture with Gianco Environmental Services to distribute and reclaim post-industrial and post-consumer plastics. The new company, called Captree Environmental Services Inc., also is pursuing opportunities in South America and Puerto Rico. Captree Chemical distributes chemicals, reagents and solvents. Gianco is a recycling company. Both are based in West Babylon.
``The combination of the two companies will allow us to contract to all companies, chemical and plastic, under one umbrella,'' said Jeffrey Berger, CES vice president of marketing.
The joint venture, formed in July, distributes resins and provides recycling services to manufacturers and municipalities, said Michael Tianchetta, CES director of recycling.
The firm has six U.S. plants. Officials would not reveal their sites or number of employees.
