Materials distributor M. Holland Co. will now handle post-consumer recycled resins produced by Lavergne Inc.
The move gives M. Holland clients access to Lavergne resins "with increased supply chain security and pricing stability," the Northbrook, Ill.-based distributor said.
"Sustainability is a primary focus for the plastics industry, and the demand for PCR resins has accelerated in recent years," said Samantha Stone, global sourcing leader, sustainability, at M. Holland, in a statement. "Our partnership with Lavergne will help meet the demand for PCR resins for our clients in North America."
Montreal-based Lavergne has recycled resin manufacturing sites Canada, Belgium, Vietnam and Haiti.
"With a shared vision for sustainability, establishing a partnership with M. Holland was an easy decision," said Benoit Bessette, vice president, strategy and planning, at Lavergne, in a statement.
