B&B Plastics and Greystone Logistics Join RPA; Will Exhibit in RPA Reusable Packaging Pavilion

Arlington, VA, Sept. 4, 2013B&B Plastics Inc. and Greystone Logistics have joined the Reusable Packaging Association and will join 35 other exhibitors in the RPA Reusable Packaging Pavilion at PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2013.

B&B Plastics is a plastic recycler that purchases post-industrial plastic waste and turns it into usable material for various industries. The material is especially well suited for packaging manufacturers. The company grinds and re-pelletizes clean plastic scrap that can then be used for a variety of applications. Some of the material is food-grade quality.

“We joined the RPA to expand our visibility and market ourselves to a broader community,” said Bacilio Mejia, Vice President of B&B Plastics. “We want to gain greater acceptance as a viable source of alternative clean plastic resin, and supply more manufacturers with quality, low-cost alternative supplies.”

Greystone Logistics is a high growth manufacturing and leasing company that designs, manufactures, sells, and leases high quality plastic pallets that provide logistical solutions needed by a wide range of industries such as the food and beverage, automotive, chemical, and pharmaceutical and consumer product industries. The technology in its injection molding equipment, proprietary blend of recycled petrochemical resins, and patented pallet designs allow production of high quality pallets more quickly and at a lower cost than competitors. The recycled plastic for its pallets helps control material costs while reducing environmental waste and provides cost advantages over users of virgin resin. In five years, Greystone moved from the research and development phase to become a leading pallet manufacturer in the beer industry with over 3 million of its patented recycled plastic pallets delivered to major customers. In the next five years the company intends to continue double digit growth in sales in manufacturing and leasing with exceptional return on assets.
