Recycling firm adds location in southeastern Wisconsin.
Minneapolis-based Pioneer Industries International, one of the largest privately owned recycling firms in the Midwest, has recently opened a plant in Milwaukee, its eighth location.
Pioneer’s Milwaukee plant will offer a full slate of recycling services, and will process a wide range of materials, including paper and printer grades, cardboard, hard and soft plastics, packaging materials (including polystyrene) and metal.
The company’s leadership team includes a number of individuals who were formerly with a large recycling company that had directly serviced the Wisconsin market until 2004.
According to Pioneer, “The principals of excellent customer service, strong end-user relationships and being a true sustainability partner to its customers resonate within this new venture just as it did before.”
The Milwaukee facility is fully operational and has added eight new hires since opening in August. The company says it anticipates further expansion at the facility will add even more job opportunities for the local residents.
Pioneer Industries International has operations in Minneapolis; Chicago; Kansas City, Kan.; Kansas City, Mo.; Dallas; Addison, Ill.; Oklahoma City; and Milwaukee.
