Plastics Equipment Supplier Establishes Joint Venture with UK Manufacturer

Precision AirConvey To Offer Plasmac Line Of Repelletizers

Newark, DE: Trim waste and scrap reclamation system developer Precision AirConvey (PAC), Newark, Del. ( has entered into a joint venture agreement with plastics recycling equipment manufacturer Plasmac Ltd., Aylesbury, England ( Precision AirConvey will offer the complete line of Plasmac repelletizing extruders in North America and will provide technical support, customer service and replacement parts. Plasmac repelletizers enable plastic film processors to capture edge trim and roll scrap, convert it to pellets and re-introduce it into the extrusion process.

The state-of-the-art line of equipment uses three different proprietary reprocessing technologies to deliver reliable, touch-screen operation at throughputs of up to 1,000 lbs/hr. with options for cutting, densifying and automating the process. This innovative Plasmac technology first attracted PAC CEO Tom Embley, P.E. to consider the joint venture. "As the prices of plastic resin and natural gas continue to climb, converting waste material into reusable material has never had more impact on the bottom line," says Embley. "We're eager to offer this new cost-cutting solution to our customers and proud to work with a global player as respected as Plasmac."

"PAC is a major supplier of plastics equipment and they are especially well regarded for their sales team and their follow-through after the sale," says Mark Richardson, international sales manager for Plasmac. "Our two complementary product lines will provide a complete package for anyone processing film in North America and I look forward to a long and successful relationship." With the joint venture, PAC now offers a complete line of auxiliary equipment for plastics processing. In addition to the Plasmac repelletizer line, PAC offers dedicated, automated equipment for reclaiming scrap, recycling off-spec film rolls and densifying film waste.
