1000th plastic recycling system: a milestone for NGR
11. December 2017
NGR marked this milestone with the SIGMA Plastics Group
For more than 15 years the globally known SIGMA Plastics Group has put its trust in recycling machines from NGR, the plastics recycling machine manufacturer from Upper Austria. In December, NGR’s machine number 1,000 was delivered to a Sigma plant New Jersey.
Founded in 1996, NGR is an internationally operating company that specializes in manufacturing plastic recycling machines. From its headquarters in Feldkirchen/Donau, Austria, the company has expanded its global reach and now has several customer centers in the US and Asia. During the past two decades, more than 1,000 machines have rolled off its assembly lines, including over 100 machines this year. And NGR marked this milestone together with its valued customer, the SIGMA Plastics Group.
SIGMA is the largest privately owned film extrusion company in North America, with more than 5,000 employees and an annual processing volume of over two billion pounds. Its product range includes packaging film, stretch film, merchandise bags, garbage bags and garment bags. In December, the 1,000th recycling machine produced by NGR was delivered to SIGMA Group – and with it NGR celebrated a major milestone.
Efficiency and service excellence
SIGMA Group currently has over 40 NGR recycling machines in use. When a company of this size forges such a steady business relationship with a supplier, clearly there are good reasons. Mr. Alfred Teo, CEO of SIGMA, explains: “We count on solutions from NGR because each system efficiently recycles all of our plastic waste and because we can rely on their excellent service. The NGR support team works actively with all of our plants to ensure that our machines are running smoothly.”
