TORONTO — Galvan Plastics Inc. of Toronto plans to reprocess industrial scrap in the United States within six months to a year.
Galvan consultant Don Black said the company has an option on land in Buffalo, N.Y., but it also is looking at other sites in New York. Galvan could invest about C$6 million (US$4.2 million) during three years in the project, which would include a 50,000-square-foot plant.
Galvan's Toronto plant reprocesses polyethylene, polypropylene and other films for sale to compounders and molders. It has capability to impact modify and color the materials. Black said the Toronto plant will stay open after a U.S. facility begins production.
Galvan President Nellie Galvano started the company in 1987. Black estimated its sales last year at C$1.5 million to C$2 million (US$1.1 million to US$1.4 million).
