Bainbridge, Ga. — Biopolymer manufacturer Meredian Holdings Group Inc. is now doing business as Danimer Scientific.
The company said the change is an acknowledgment of its origins as a biotechnology company that developed innovative bioplastics.
“The adoption of our founding name and logo marks a significant milestone as we dedicate ourselves to future product innovation and the development of global-scale solutions to plastic pollution,” said CEO Stephen Croskrey, in a news release.
MHG formed in July 2014 from the merger of sister firms Meredian Inc. and Danimer Scientific LLC. Danimer had bought the polyhydroxyalkanoate resin technology being used by Meredian from consumer products giant Procter & Gamble Co. in 2007.
Danimer Scientific formed in 2004 to develop compostable and biodegradable plastic alternatives.
“The renewal of our corporate identity signals an exciting time for the company as we intensify our dedication to the development of dynamic biopolymer solutions, like our completely biodegradable PHA plastic for widespread commercial use,” Croskrey said.
Danimer Scientific currently operates two facilities. It is headquartered in Bainbridge.
