NEW PROVIDENCE, N.J. — In a major deal adding $42 million of new revenues, AXION International Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB:AXIH), a leader in recycled plastic and plastic composite, today announced that its subsidiary, AXION Recycled Plastics Incorporated, signed a 3-year contract to provide recycled materials to a major thermoplastics company.
