Urethane, plastic and rubber processor PolyFlex Products Inc. has formed what it calls an engineering and logistics alliance in China.
The Farmington Hills, Mich.-based company said it aims to better serve its customers in China and elsewhere through Shanghai EC Global International Trading Co., which will provide engineering and logistics support as well as technical assistance.
PolyFlex makes material handling products such as custom returnable packaging, protective shipping containers along with custom and standard dunnage systems.
EC Global has experience in both plastics and metal component manufacturing and also focuses on building agile and lean supply chains, PolyFlex said in a news release.
In addition to offering engineering and logistics support, EC Global also will “strengthen and improve our capabilities for helping customers move products back and forth from China,” said CEO Mark Kirchmer.
