National Container Group (NCG), the reconditioning subsidiary of MAUSER Group, has acquired Recycle, Inc. East (RIE) located in South Plainfield, New Jersey, USA, effective today.
RIE began reconditioning poly and steel drums in 1989 and soon after added asset and composite IBCs to its portfolio. In 1999, Recycle, Inc. East became the first company ever to manufacture DOT-certified plastic drums made from 100% recycled plastic. The acquisition will allow NCG to double more than its current capacity for both PCR and drums made from 100% recycled plastic. NCG will also be able to provide improved customer service in the Eastern U.S. and add highly experienced personnel to its team.
NCG President and CEO Michael A. Chorpash states: “The team of Recycle, Inc. East represents a true reflection of our sustainability model, and we are very excited to extend our group with such a dedicated team.”
“I am thrilled that Recycle has become part of NCG and the MAUSER Group,” says Jeff Bey, President of Recycle, Inc. East. “They are a global company with a strong commitment to quality and service, environmental stewardship, and tremendous employee dedication which is a great platform for the future of our customers and partners.”
