Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., plant also will process post-industrial plastics.
Rehrig Pacific Logistics, based in Pleasant Prairie, Wis., has opened its newest reverse logistics and plastics processing center in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. The company provides reusable packaging services and solutions, including asset management and exchange, reverse logistics and pooling and recycling and sustainability services. The new facility will process and regrind post-industrial recyclable plastic that can be reused in manufacturing.
The facility will manufacture HDPE (high-density polyethylene) in melt indexes of 5, 8 or bottle-grade fractionals in natural and mixed color as pellets or 3/8-inch flake.
"Our new facility will enhance Rehrig's complete recycling program that can help reduce landfill waste and enhances our customers' corporate sustainability objectives," says Matt Dannenfeldt, president of Rehrig Pacific Logistics. "The combination of our recycling experience, technical competence, innovation and our unique waste-to-product process makes us the ideal partner for sustainable plastics recycling."
Rehrig currently operates 10 reverse logistics and plastics processing centers in the United States.
In addition to plastics recycling, the new facility will offer pallet management and sales, pooling, asset exchange and tracking, reverse logistics, supply chain consulting, transportation and additional recycling and sustainability services.
Todd Rudewald, Rehrig director of operations and innovations, says the new plant gives the company, which has a retail services business in Northern California, a larger presence on the West Coast.
Rehrig Pacific Logistics is a wholly owned subsidiary of Rehrig Pacific Co.
