Sigma Plastics Group Adding Four New NGR Recycling Lines

Film industry giant, Sigma Plastics Group, is dramatically increasing their recycling capacity with the addition of four new NGR high output recycling lines. Delivering in May 2018, the four S:GRAN 125 machines will reprocess over 4 million pounds per month of film scrap from their in-house film production.

The Sigma Plastics Group was founded in 1978 by Alfred Teo and is the largest privately-owned film extrusion group in North America. Based in Pompano Beach, Florida, the company has 42 manufacturing facilities producing an annual throughput of over 2 billion pounds of resin and employs over 4,700 people. Sigma manufactures a variety of flexible packaging products servicing the industrial, agricultural, food, medical, retail, and converter film markets.

The new recycling lines represent an investment of nearly $3 million and will be installed at Sigma Plants in Pompano Beach, FL, Spartanburg, SC, Jacksonville, FL and Nashville, TN. With the new NGR lines, these Sigma plants will be able to get the highest possible value from their film scrap by using the reprocessed material directly into new film production.
As the largest single customer of NGR, the Sigma Group has over 40 NGR recycling machines operating at plants in the US and Canada.

Headquartered in Feldkirchen, Austria and with the US sales and support office in Atlanta, GA, NGR is a leading supplier of recycling lines for the reprocessing of all forms of plastic scrap materials.
