US: Thermoforming manufacturer upgrades its recycling capabilities and manufacturing facility

T.O. Plastics, a thermoforming manufacturer, announces upgrades to its recycling capabilities and manufacturing facility. These enhancements are designed to not only expand the company's capacity and improve operational efficiency but also increase its use of recycled material.

T.O. Plastics has invested in recycling technology that aims to increase the efficiency of its recycling processes and expands the range of recycled materials that can be used in manufacturing its products. According to the company, the addition of an integrated resin recovery system at its Clearwater facility enables them to utilize more than 99 percent of raw waste material generated during production processes and begin processing externally sourced scrap material that is otherwise difficult to recycle. They expect that this investment in recycling technology allows them to divert millions of pounds annually of waste from landfills, and for its horticultural containers and trays produced to be made of at least 95 percent recycled material.

"Sustainability is no longer a choice but a necessity, and our dedication to environmental responsibility has never been stronger," said Jared Rusch, Vice President of Sales & Marketing. "Our latest recycling efforts mark a significant milestone as we continuously seek out and implement more effective and innovative practices to reduce our environmental footprint."

In response to growing customer demand and the goal of increasing the amount of recycled material in its products, T.O. Plastics has also invested in upgrading its production facility and expanding equipment capability. The addition of a new high-volume extruder line not only increased production capacity, incorporating technology has also sustained current manufacturing of products while increasing the company's use of recycled materials, states the T.O. Plastics team.

"Through these upgrades, T.O. Plastics is increasing our commitment to sustainability within the horticultural industry. Our investment in new recycling technologies and processing capability enhancements reflects our commitment to environmental responsibility and the success of our customers," said Paul Meschke, President of T.O. Plastics. "We believe that by incorporating these new capabilities we can make a significant impact, while still delivering the high-quality products and services our customers expect from us."
