A plastics packaging recycling operation reopening in Sarnia, Ontario, has a new name — ReVital Polymers Inc.
The site, acquired last year by Emmie Leung and Tony Moucachen, previously operated as Entropex LLC operations.
Entropex, one of the largest plastics recyclers in North America, shuttered its doors last summer under the weight of depressed commodity prices for recycled resin.
But Leung, founder of waste and recycling company Emterra Group, and Moucachen, founder of Merlin Plastics Group, put together a bid for the assets of Entropex that was accepted by a Canadian court. The bid included the company's 180,000-square-foot facility. Merlin ranked 19th on the latest Plastics News listing of plastic recyclers in North America, handling an estimated 132 million pounds.
