Blackrock Plastics adds trading capacity

South Carolina-based company cites demand for recycled-content polymers.

April 21, 2022

Charleston, South Carolina-based Blackrock Plastics LLC says it has undertaken a recent office expansion to accommodate increased business demand. The company, which describes itself as an established buyer and seller of postindustrial recycled plastics, says it specializes in purchasing postindustrial plastic scrap and selling recycled plastics.

Blackrock says its locations in different parts of the United States combined with the recent office expansion will allow it to better serve existing clients efficiently and handle an influx of new business.

“With the market being so tight due to the lack of supply of virgin material, we’re still growing, with increased demand for our plastic scrap,” says Jim Kevany, a director at Blackrock Plastics. “We’ve learned to adapt to different market conditions, responding to our increase in demand with our recent office expansion. We look forward to continuing to provide top-quality, streamlined services for both our buyers and sellers.”

Among the grades of post-industrial plastic scrap Blackrock buys are low-density polyethylene (LDPE), Nylon, high-density polyethylene (HDPE), polypropylene (PP), bulk shipping sacks, thermoplastic olefin (TPO), thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), purgings and plastic regrind.

“The strain on global supply chains has caused demand for post-industrial plastic scrap to steadily increase,” states the company. In response to the uptick, Blackrock says it is equipping its staff “with the necessary resources to keep up with demand.”

Blackrock says its “hassle-free process allows sellers to create a steady revenue stream from plastic recycling while simultaneously providing buyers with a reliable source for material needs.”
