Recycler PlastiCycle Corp. is doubling the size of its Nashville, Tenn., manufacturing plant to accommodate growing business in recycling automotive and industrial film scrap.
The White Plains-based firm said it bought a 50,000-square- foot facility across the street from its existing leased facility, which it opened last year. The new space will let the firm meet its plans to have capacity to recycle about 60 million pounds a year, said Joe Cirillo, president and chief executive officer.
The company added one grinding line and baling equipment in the new facility, and has room to add several more grinders, he said. Cirillo declined to disclose investment figures. The film scrap includes low density polyethylene, while the automotive scrap includes ABS, thermoplastic olefins and polypropylene.
The Nashville plant is the firm's only manufacturing operation. It has sales offices in White Plains, Auburn, N.Y., and Monterrey, Mexico.
