Revolution Sustainable Solutions LLC is expanding the company's agricultural film recycling operations through the acquisition of a Canadian company.
Revolution, based in Little Rock, Ark., now owns PolyAg Recycling Ltd. of Bashaw, Alberta.
"PolyAg has built an impressive business in a relatively short period of time, and by combining our strengths and expertise, we are well-positioned to deliver even more impactful sustainable solutions to our customers in the U.S and Canada," Revolution CEO Sean Whiteley said in a statement.
PolyAg began recycling agricultural film in 2019 and is located 85 miles south of Edmonton and 150 miles north of Calgary.
The acquisition of PolyAg follows the company's recent expansion in Little Rock that included new blown film lines to make specialty agricultural films, Revolution said.
"As Revolution expands further into the ag market, adding PolyAg's recycling capacity offers significant opportunities to better serve ag customers across the U.S. and Canadian markets with the company's holistic approach to collection, recycling and production of sustainable product solutions," the company said.
Revolution recycles more than 300 million pounds of plastic each year and makes a variety of new products, including films, sheeting, bags, liners and irrigation tube.
